The Full Tilt Poker family continues to grow by leaps and bounds, consistently adding to the extraordinary roster of professional poker players that represent the online poker site. Most recently, online phenomenon Soren Kongsgaard has been signed on as an official Full Tilt Pro.
He is a 21-year old Danish poker pro, and the online poker world sure knows who he is. According to internet poker ranking sites, Kongsgaard has made over $800,000 in online tournament earnings, with more than half of that at Full Tilt Poker alone. And as he has parlayed his success into live tournaments, he has racked up over $1.5 million in winnings there, with the biggest takes coming in March of 2007 with a third place finish at the European Grand Finale in Monte Carlo and September of 2007 when he won the main no-limit hold’em event of the Danish Championships. Full Tilt Poker saw the up-and-coming pro for the talent he possesses in poker and signed him to a contract to play tournaments going forward as a Full Tilt Pro.
“I am extremely happy and glad about this opportunity,” Kongsgaard said. “It’s really huge for me to get a chance to join Full Tilt Poker’s team. My agency, Pokericons, have [sic] really done a great hob at making this happen. I have played at Full Tilt Poker for many years and I know many of the other team members and they are all great players and persons that I’m glad to be a part of.”
The latest member of the Full Tilt family joins more than 100 other players as representatives of the site, one that boasts of a primary team of Lederer, Ivey, Ferguson, Juanda, Harman, Gordon, Lindgren, Seidel, Bloch, Matusow, Hansen, Cunningham, and Antonius. Not a bad lineup with which to merge.
