Great Dane Gus Hansen Returns As The Face Of Full Tilt Poker
FullTiltPoker.com have today announced that all-conquering tournament legend Gus Hansen will be returning to the re-launched site as official brand ambassador ahead of its planned return to real-money poker on November 6, 2012.
The Great Dane – who has accumulated over $11.2 million in tournament winnings and is widely considered to be one of the best all-round players in the game – had previously been a Red Pro at the popular site and will now take on the responsibility of being the new face of Full Tilt Poker.
Having obtained the assets of Full Tilt Poker after reaching an agreement with the Department of Justice to reimburse all players outside of the US, PokerStars have been working hard to ensure all former FTP customers will have their full balance accessible before the scheduled re-launch date.
Once fully operational again, FullTiltPoker.com will retain its own identity, including skins, lobby layout and tournament schedule, meaning that players will still receive FTP’s high quality poker experience, but this time it will be delivered with PokerStars well-established history of integrity.
“I’m very excited to represent the industry’s most authentic poker brand,” said Hansen on being unveiled as FTP’s new ambassador. “Full Tilt Poker has the best games, most innovative software and the strongest poker community; to me this feels like coming home.”
