Their motto was one “Learn, Chat and Play with the Pros”, but in a recent email sent out to some of the world’s most recognisable grinders it seems that this won’t be the case anymore.
Full Tilt Poker was famous for its extensive roster of Red Pros who could be found playing at the tables on a daily basis, donating and entertaining the community in equal measure. However, following the shutdown and subsequent takeover of the site by PokerStars, their sponsorships have now ended.Many pros had been unsure whether their status as one of the site’s representatives – complete with hourly rate and 100% rakeback - would remain intact, unfortunately though this won’t be the case according to a recent email obtained by PokerNews.Outlined in the correspondence, Dustin Iannotti, Full Tilt’s new pro manager, stated: “The ‘Red Pro’ team is not being continued by the Rational Group and a new team has been launched under the name of ‘The Professionals’. Unfortunately, we do not have any immediate plans to expand the Full Tilt Pro team at this time. We do not rule this out as a possibility in the future, and because of that, we will keep your contact on file should that plan change at any point.”Former Red Pros have been given the opportunity to change their screen name once, but other than that their association with the site is now just as any other player outside Full Tilt’s new team of professionals (Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan and Viktor Blom).There's plenty of great action on offer at the cash and tournament tables at Full Tilt. New players can avail themselves of a first deposit bonus of up to $600%. Sign up at Full Tilt Poker.
