Share this

Full Tilt Poker just put a unique twist on the "Heads Up Showdown" that's coming up on Sunday, September 14th, at 14:15 (ET) when Gus Hansen and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom pit their poker skills against each other for a prize of $50,000. You're the twist and since everyone is unique, you're the unique twist.

You can jump in and compete for a shot at playing a heads-up battle with either Hansen or Blom for a $5,000 prize — it's a freeroll! Of course you want to know how you can make it happen. Who doesn't?

The competition started yesterday but you have time to prepare...take a deep breath...let it out slowly...let's proceed. How do you qualify? You take a 'selfie' showing off your artistic flair and submit it. You could be part of the show before Hansen and Blom face off on Sunday, September 14th, in their best-of-three heads-up duel.

Before the two pros go to war on the virtual felt, Full Tilt is opening the door for fans around the world to show their support for Blom or Hansen and have the chance to battle it out heads-up in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

How to qualify for that heads-up chair:

  • Click on one of the two masks below, print it, put it on, and be as creative as possible while you shoot your selfie.
  • Tweet your selfie along with the hashtag of the player of your choice — #HUGus or #HUBlom in your message before 23:59 ET on Monday, September 8th.
  • Think positive that you are the winner and wait to hear the news!

The top five most retweeted and favorited selfies will be posted to the Full Tilt Blog on Tuesday, September 9th, and readers and players will be asked to pick the best selfie for each category. Voting ends on Friday, September 11th.

The challenge event kicks off on Sunday, September 14th at 13:45 ET. The winner of each poll will be in a No Limit Hold'em freeroll for $5,000 playing heads-up against their favorite pro.

You don't need an account to jump in the competition, but if your selfie is picked, you can't go into action without an account at Full Tilt Poker. If you don't have one, sign up here at PokerWorks and take advantage of a welcome bonus up to $600. An additional advantage is you'll also be invited to all promotions and bonuses we run with Full Tilt Poker.
