Full Tilt Poker has officially announced the signing of Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom as professional players of the re-launching room.
Following the news of Gus Hansen joining ‘The Professionals’, the pro player team of Full Tilt Poker, re-launching on 6 November, two more of the most renowned players around have signed up recently. Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom are to further enhance the rebuilding reputation of the room.

“Tom is one of the most feared and respected players in the world today. His exploits at the Full Tilt Poker tables generated a huge following in the poker community and we are thrilled to bring that action back for our players,” FTP head of marketing Sarne Lightman said.

“I’m very excited that Full Tilt Poker is re-launching. I think it is great for poker and I’m excited to be a part of it,” Dwan said.

'Isildur1' have also commented on his new Team Pro membership: “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.”

Without doubt, both players have played significant roles in the history of FTP. At the time of the emergence of ‘Isildur1’, Dwan was the uncrowned king of the online high stakes tables, whose life was hardened a couple of times by the Swede who played a hyper-aggressive style never seen before. Some of the most remarkable clashes of the stakes were theirs and their rivalry may now be revitalised.



“The game of poker is always evolving. Through our continual innovations, Full Tilt Poker is proud to have been at the forefront of that evolution. 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,” Lightman remarked.

Members of ‘The Professionals’ will be regular players at the FTP high stakes tables, in addition to promoting the room in online and live tournaments.
