Tuesday October 16,2012 : FULL TILT POKER SIGNS UP TOP POKER PROFESSIONALS
Dwan and Blom among the most exciting and mercurial players today
The resurrected Full Tilt Poker brand continues to generate headlines and interest in its upcoming November 6 relaunch, announcing this week that it has signed up two of the most exciting players online in professional agreements with Tom ‘durrrr' Dwan and Viktor ‘Isildur1' Blom.
The two high stakes pros have featured in countless media tales from the nosebleed tables, frequently betting millions on roller coaster sessions that have enthralled online railbirds everywhere.
They join previously signed Gus ‘the Great Dane' Hansen as members of a pro player team branded “The Professionals,” through which Full Tilt Poker will exploit the reputations these aggressive and skilled top players have earned over the years in highly competitive clashes with each other and similar well-known and respected names in the rarefied and expensive atmosphere of the virtual high stakes tables.
This sort of action draws traffic and generates both media and general interest in the online poker on offer.
Blom recently departed the pro team at Pokerstars (now the owner of Full Tilt), whilst Dwan and Hansen were members of Team Full Tilt under the previous management, but have signed fresh contracts with the new ownership.
Dwan now resides in Macau, whilst Blom hails from Sweden.
