Online poker mogul Andreas Oscarsson was found murdered in his home in Sweden earlier this month. According to reports, OscarssonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s murder was not a burglary gone awry, nor a random act of violence, but a targeted hit on wealthy the 36 year old.
Andreas Oscarsson was the founder of the incredibly popular online poker site, Pokerlistings.com. He was found shot to death on August 3rd in his Sweden home. Reports say that Oscarsson had multiple residencies, in Sweden and SoHo.
According to recent news reports, Andreas Oscarsson may have had enemies. Some have compared the online poker mogulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hit to the dangers of casino-related mobster days of the 1930Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s. Others have claimed the hit should have been expected.
Poker news source Bluff Europe Magazine theorized that an attempted hit was made on Andreas Oscarsson last year. Apparently another man by the same name was murdered a year ago. The online poker magazine suggested threats had been made against the founder of Pokerlistings.com.
An excerpt from Bluff Europe Magazine reads: “As of now there are no further details except that police are uncertain of the exact motive, but reports emanating from Sweden suggest ‘concrete threats’ were made towards Oscarsson, according to friends and colleagues in Stockholm and Gothenburg.”
Others have also claimed that it was OscarssonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s past that resulted in his murder earlier this month. Ã¢â‚¬ËœLoctusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, a member of TwoPlusTwo forums, and resident of Sweden, posted, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Police [have] been talking on the radio about it saying that it’s quite probably [something] from his past that has caught up to him in this unfortunate way.”
The rumors and speculation surrounding the death of Andreas Oscarsson are not concrete at this time, but 4Flush.com will continue to follow the story as further details are unveiled.
