Get Ready to Win When Viktor Blom and Gus Hansen go to War in a "Heads Up Showdown" at Full Tilt Poker

Viktor Blom - Gus Hansen
Share this

September is going to be a huge explosion of opportunity and massive poker battles — count yourself in and get ready for all the action you can feed on at Full Tilt Poker in the Heads Up Showdown where Gus Hansen and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, face off and you have a chance to win a piece of the action!

The Heads Up Showdown is set to begin at 14:15 (ET) on Sunday, September 14th, and Full Tilt's Team Pros are going to fight it out for a $50,000 prize courtesy of Full Tilt.

"I skipped Vegas and the European Poker Tour in Barcelona this summer, so it feels to have something big coming up," said Blom. "This Heads Up Showdown against Gus is going to be really cool, especially as there's more than money on the line."

There are three different poker variants in the mix in the Heads Up Showdown which will be a best-of-three battle.

Hansen has chosen a game of 7 Card Stud 8/B and it showcases the player's skill set in the first game. Then Blom has chosen No Limit Deuce to 7 Triple Draw for the second game. If one of them wins both, is it over? We are uncertain but a public vote will decide on the format of the third for the game on the Full Tilt Blog.

There's $50,000 to the winner of the match but all the giggles start when the loser has to play 1,000 hands of micro-stakes Razz or make a video of themselves singing the winner's national anthem — and publish the video.

Get in on the action and win a share of $50,000

There are two different promotions in the mix for the Heads Up Showdown. Full Tilt is going to give you a chance to play a freeroll for a piece of $50,000 and a $635 Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) Main Event ticket.

To get started on your shot to win, make a deposit of $20 (or more) and earn 50 Full Tilt Points between August 28th and September 7th.

Meet these two simple requirements and you'll receive a special ticket to take a seat in either the $10,000 Gus Supporters Freeroll or the $10,000 Viktor Supporters Freeroll that begins at 14:15 (ET) on Monday, September 13th.

There's more...

When the Heads Up Showdown is over, everyone that picked the winner will receive an extra ticket for a seat in a special $30,000 Heads Up Showdown Flip Freeroll at 14:15 (ET) on Monday, September 15th.
