Challenge Gus Hansen and Viktor Blom

Challenge Gus Hansen and Viktor Blom

Monday, 24 December 2012

Ever wondered what it would be like to face off against legendary pros Viktor Blom or Gus Hansen but don't have the bankroll to mount a challenge (and let's face it, most of us don't)?

Full Tilt Poker is giving players with more limited funds the chance to take on The Professionals at special low-stakes tables. The Challenge Tables are small buy-in ring game tables with one seat permanently reserved for either Gus ‘The Great Dane’ Hansen or Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom. These tables are identified within the game software as Gus Hansen’s Table or Isildur1’s Table and various games types are available.

A few times a week, Gus and Isildur1 will select one or more of their Challenge Tables, sit in their reserved spots and take on the players already seated or anyone else willing to face up to the challenge.

Gus and Blom like to mix up their action and that will be reflected at the Challenge Tables which will include games of Omaha Hi, Omaha Hi/Lo (also known as Omaha8), Razz, Stud Hi/Lo, Draw Poker Games and Mixed Games.

Players can also earn a free Ring Game Ticket simply by being active at a Challenge Table when Gus or Isildur1 sit down and play. You’ll need to have taken part in the game during the previous ten minutes to be eligible for your ticket which will be valued at 50 Big Blinds at Pot Limit and No Limit tables and 25 Big Bets at Fixed Limit tables.

You can also earn an additional Ring Game Ticket of equal value by winning the most qualifying hands during each session. A qualifying winning hand is one that goes to showdown, with that table’s named professional still active at showdown.

New players can butt heads with the game's biggest names with a first deposit bonus of up to $500. Sign up at Full Tilt Poker.
