During poker's biggest weekend, with the conclusion of the World Series of Poker Main Event final table happening Monday night, Full Tilt Poker has announced a rare addition to Team Full Tilt. Tom "durrrr" Dwan, arguably one of the world's greatest high stakes online poker players is now a member of one of poker's most elite group of pros.
Not afraid to risk millions at a time playing the biggest online cash games on Full Tilt against the likes of Team Full Tilt members Patrik Antonius, Gus Hansen and Phil Ivey the addition makes perfect sense. Dwan has always played the majority of his poker on Full Tilt and has even had his own tables their for the "Durrrr Challenge" since the matches were announced to the public earlier this year. The addition seems like a match made in heaven, as finally the game's greatest online star will be donning a Full Tilt logo proudly.
"Team Full Tilt doesn't take adding a team member lightly," said Team Full Tilt member, Howard Lederer. "But, Tom Dwan has proven, through skill and dynamic play, that he will be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. We are proud to count Tom as one of our own."
It has been over a year since the last addition of a Team Full Tilt player with Patrik Antonius joining the squad in June of 2008. Prior to that it was Gus Hansen who was added to the team which consists of Phil Ivey, Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, John Juanda, Jennifer Harman, Phil Gordon, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, Andy Bloch, Mike Matusow and Allen Cunningham.
In addition to playing on the Full Tilt tables, Dwan will also be sharing his wisdom with the Full Tilt Poker Academy, where players can learn from some of the world's best pros for free. He'll be sharing his experiences as a Full Tilt Team member on an exclusive blog on FullTiltPoker.com as well.
