With apologies to people such as "Hallinggol", Johan Storakers is argubly the best Swedish poker player in the world, and has the results to back that up. Storakers is incredibly consistent, and has been raking in the tournament cashes for years now.

Storakers currently has over $1.3 million dollars in total cashes all-time in tournaments, with his biggest year being 2005. In 2005, Storakers came in 3rd at the Ultimate Poker Classic, raking in $300,000 for his efforts. Other impressive finishes include winning the 2003 Helsinki Freezeout for just under $300,000, and coming in second at the Master Classics of Poker in 2002.

Storakers is known for his very thoughtful and analytical play, and is considered by most to be one of the best and brightest poker minds out there.

Storakers was recently signed by Ultimatebet to promote their brand overseas, especially in the Scandanavian countries.

Storakers used to work as a paperboy, and has served time in the Swedish national military. Expect to see Storakers at this year's World Series of Poker, at which he is normally a fixture.
