Two More Pros Join Full Tilt
Following on from the news of Full Tilt’s revival and planned return to the online poker scene, the company is ramping up publicity. The site, which was closed last year after the “black friday” raids on online poker sites, is scheduled to return on November 6th, and in preparation for the launch it is adding a stable of poker pros.
Gus Hansen is the face of the site, but Tom Dwan and Viktor Blom have joined the new poker team. Blom is best known for his online poker presence; he was a regular player under then name ‘Isildur1′. Blom said of joining the team that: “I always loved playing on the Full Tilt Poker software, it is where I made my name and enjoyed some of my greatest victories. When they approached me about joining the team I knew this was the right fit for me.”
A Full Tilt spokesman said that they chose the three pros that they did because they were the pros that had the most impact on the way that modern poker is played. They are optimistic about the renovation of the site, and believe that the new launch, and the new software, will be enjoyed by players.
