More Player Signings - Patrik Antonius to Full Tilt Poker, Kathy Liebert to Pokerstars
Two participants of the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em final table were officially signed to sponsorship deals on Sunday, as Patrik Antonius inked a deal with Full Tilt Poker, and Kathy Liebert inked a deal with Pokerstars.
Antonius became an official member of "Team Full Tilt", an impressive array of players that includes the likes of Phil Ivey, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Allen Cunningham.
The signing was a no-brainer for Full Tilt Poker. Antonius is one of the most popular and recognizable poker players in the world, and spends most of his time playing on Full Tilt Poker anyways. This deal means that Antonius will now play exclusively on Full Tilt Poker. Patrik has played on Full Tilt Poker under a wide variety of different names, including "FinddaGrind" and "Luigi66369".
Antonius has approximately $2.8 million dollars in lifetime tournament earnings, including his 7th place finish at the $10k Pot Limit Hold'em event that concluded today.
As mentioned, Kathy Liebert has also inked a sponsorship deal. Liebert will become a Team Pokerstars Pro, joining the likes of Greg Raymer, Joe Hachem and Daniel Negreanu.
Including her third place finish in the $10k Pot Limit Hold'em event on Sunday, Liebert now has over $4.5 million dollars in lifetime tournament cashes. She is number one on the list of all-time total cashes by a woman, and possesses one WSOP bracelet and 24 World Series of Poker cashes. She has also made four WPT final tables. Her biggest cash came in 2002 when she took down the Party Poker Million for 1 million dollars. Liebert is a solid addition to the Pokerstars team, and she will no doubt represent the company well in live events.
Expect more player signings as the WSOP continues.
