Gus Hansen to be the face of Full Tilt
Wednesday, 3 October 2012
Full Tilt Poker yesterday announced that poker legend Gus Hansen will return as an ambassador for the site which is scheduled to return for real-money gaming on 6th November.
"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,” said Hansen. "They’ll be paying me to do what I love to do".
"The Great Dane" boasts around $11.2 million in tournament winnings, including 4 WPT titles, an Aussie Millions Main Event win and and 1 WSOP bracelet. He also plays in many of the biggest cash games around the world, from Macau, to Bobby's Room in Las Vegas, as well as online.
He was a regular in many of the highest stakes games on Full Tilt Poker, especially in PLO, FLO8 and 2-7. Hansen has since been playing under the nickname “broski” on PokerStars in most of the same games, which run as high as $1000/2000.
"Gus is one of the best-known and most respected names in the poker community," said Full Tilt Poker's newly-appointed Head of Marketing Sarne Lightman. "Gus has always embodied the best characteristics of the Full Tilt Poker brand and we are thrilled to have him return as an ambassador.”
