This is part of every man's life and when someone dies, those who knew him must to send condolence messages or to speak directly with the deceased's family.
The new method of sending condolence is very good ( internet ) and Professional players who sent condolences proceeds correctly as a sign of respect.
Condolence for this player's family.

Not hear about this guy anything, but it is.i think because he not plays in television shows or is very big money player. All people die one day or another, this is not very young time, when people die when 30 or 40 it is too young

the godfather of Norwegian poker is a very cool definition ... but I have not heard anything about this man .... apparently he was playing then when I was not interested in online poker .... Due to his age, it is quite possible .... and of course a terrible cancer disease ... Condolences to all who have a relationship

This is an incredibly sad story and my condolences go out to his family and friends. I have watched Thor playing many times over the years on the t.v. and he always came across as a very good player but, more importantly, a gentleman as well

Rest in peace. Never heard of him, never knew about him, but he still lived a full life and reached seventy so it's okay. One thing others me though how in the hell possible that the €800 Norwegian Open (sponsored by partypoker) was held in Dublin, Ireland? Oslo wasn't available?

Famous in Las Vegas back in the 1990's. He played with the best players like Doyle Brunson and movie stars in Hollywood , Larry Flynt . And he staked Stu Ungar , the best player of them all. it can't get any better than that. He had so many stories to tell. RIP.

Rest in peace to this man, I remember watching him play in tournaments and other televised poker shows and WSOP tournaments like 10+ years ago. From what I remember he was a pretty solid guy, and a good/funyn guy to have around a poker table. He is gonna be missed.

Hopefully he runs good in heaven Blink Good luck on the tables guys
