Full Tilt Poker continues to sign some of the brightest young poker talent to sponsorship deals, this time inking Jon "Fieryjustice" Little and Scott "BigRiskky" Clements to deals. This comes on the heels of their impressive outings at the North American Poker Championship this past weekend.
Full Tilt has gone on a signing binge as of late, scooping up many talented young poker players including Jon Turner, Jared Hamby and Jordan Morgan. They had wanted to sign Annette Obrestad to a deal, but they were outbid by Betfair, who offered "Annette_15" a superior deal to sign with their room. Full Tilt seems to be targeting players with a mix of online and live success, which would make sense from a marketing standpoint.
It is assumed that Little and Clements are receiving a standard deal from Full Tilt Poker, which would include 100% rakeback, cash bonuses for appearing on TV, an hourly "salary" for playing at the tables, and other perks.
With the current signing spree that is going on in the online poker world, one has to wonder how long names like Sorel Mizzi and Chad Batista will remain free agents.
