EPT Chipleader, Fredrik Nygard, a Swedish/Finish scammer

Tags: EPT, EPT Prague, Fredrik Nygard.
Posted on 13 December 2008 by "K".

Fredrik Nygard, a well known scammer?The chipleader in the EPT event in Prague, Fredrik Nygard, is a known hustler who currently lives in Sweden. A few months ago he went to a Swedish newspaper to tell the story about his life and he said he was doing this in order to warn other people about his scamming behaviour.

Fredrik Nygard has a long history of hustling people out of money and it started already at the age of 16 when he used to tell his parents that he needed money for school books when in fact he was gambling away all of his money. At the age of 16 he had already lost over €6000 on his gambling addiction.

Later on in life he moved to Las Vegas where he has been scamming a lot of well known poker players out of money to fund his own gambling.

Fredrik Nygard, EPT Prague chipleaderThe reason why Nygard went to the newspaper with his story was that he did not want to live this way anymore and he wanted to make sure he would not be able to scam anyone anymore after publishing his name and a picture of himself in the newspaper.

When he met up with the newspaper he was broke and he was also without a home. This was back in March 2008.

Now in December of 2008 he is the chipleader in a huge live poker tournament, the EPT event in Prague has a first price of €774,000 and the question is what will happen with the money if he should manage to win...?

More info in Swedish: "Jag kan inte sluta lura folk"


UPDATE: Fredrik Nygard starts at final table in 4th place with 666,000 chips.

No respect for his past, but great respect for his outcome.

he came clean, its has bought him some good "karma" and if he wins any money he should be able to keep it, i have no sympathy for victims of con men, con men feed off peoples greed and if they are stupid enough to part with their hard earned thats their problem, so go for it dude.

i hope he does win the EPT, but it would be good if you printed some of the scams that he played on well known poker players and how much he scamed.

hmm, he looks so doodgy in that first photo lol. No home , no money and somehow 9 months later he will have near $1,000,000 if all goes well for him. LOL ah thats just funny, as for the scamming thing- weird he went to the paper, but i guess it was more just to stop himself, or maybe that bought the story ( im sadly guessing the later)

if he was broke and homeless just a few monts back, how did he get the money for the tournament buy in? just wondering...

------------
or actually more than just a few monts but 25k or whatever the buy in is, is sorta hard to make in such a limited time when you have nothing to start up with...
