Dwan and Blom Join Gus Hansen as Full Tilt Poker "Professionals"



The King is looking over to the Full Tilt Poker Logo

Full Tilt Poker revealed earlier today that they have signed Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom to deals. Dwan and Blom will join Gus Hansen as Full Tilt Poker ambassadors - this group of ambassadors will be collectively known as "The Professionals".

Full Tilt Poker, which is currently just 22 days away from their relaunch, now has three of the biggest names in the poker world locked down to sponsorship deals.

--

Shortly after Pokerstars acquired Full Tilt Poker, Pokerstars announced that Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was no longer a sponsored pro for their site. This led to speculation that Blom was going to be sponsored by Full Tilt Poker 2.0, and this speculation proved to be correct. Blom moving back to Full Tilt Poker makes sense, as Full Tilt was the site where he first made a name for himself back in 2009.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan was a member of Full Tilt Poker 1.0's "Team Full Tilt". Dwan signed his deal to represent Full Tilt Poker back in November of 2009, approximately 1 1/2 years before "Black Friday" took place. Dwan, who is one of the most popular poker players in the world, joins Gus Hansen as a former member of "Team Full Tilt" who is returning to Full Tilt Poker.

--

Full Tilt Poker had this to say about the signing of Hansen, Dwan and Blom to ambassador deals:

"In choosing our Pros we approached the three poker players whose unique and innovative styles have had the most impact on how modern poker is played."

--

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom made a name for himself back in the fall of 2009 when he battled Tom Dwan on Full Tilt Poker. Blom would go on to battle the likes of Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius, but it was his matches against Dwan that really put him on the map. "Isildur1" was able to parlay this fame into a sponsorship deal with Pokerstars, and has now gone full circle by inking a deal with Full Tilt Poker.

One thing is obvious with these three signings - Full Tilt Poker will be home to nosebleed cash games once again.
