FullTiltPoker.com today announced that one of the most famous international poker players, Gus Hansen will return as brand ambassador for the site, which plans to re-open for real-money poker on November 6, 2012.
In August, PokerStars obtained the assets of Full Tilt Poker and committed to reimburse Full Tilt Poker customers outside the U.S. whose accounts have been inaccessible since the previous management closed the site in June 2011.
Full Tilt Poker will offer real-money poker games and tournaments globally, with the exception of the U.S., France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Estonia and Belgium. Full Tilt Poker’s customers in the rest of the world can soon look forward to accessing their accounts and playing on the re-launched site, confident that they are supported by PokerStars’ history of integrity combined with Full Tilt Poker’s track record of delivering the highest quality online poker experience.
Hansen, a poker icon and four-time WPT champion, already boasts career tournament earnings of nearly $11.2 million and is widely considered to be one of the best all-around players in the world - whether it be large tournaments, live cash games or online. As a former Full Tilt Pro, Hansen, 38, is excited to be returning to one of the world’s leading poker brands.
He said: "I’m very excited to represent the industry’s most authentic poker brand. Full Tilt Poker has the best games, most innovative software and the strongest poker community; to me this feels like coming home.”
