Full Tilt has organized a showdown between its two top Team Pros, Gus Hansen and Viktor “Isildur1”Blom.
The two will play three games on Sunday, September 14. Blom chose No Limit 2-7 Triple Draw, Hansen chose Stud 8 and the third game will be selected by a public vote on the Full Tilt blog.
The winner of the three matches will receive $50k—but more significantly, the loser must choose between releasing a video of themselves singing the winner’s national anthem, or take to the table to play 1,000 hands of $0.05/$0.10 Razz.
Players Can Choose Their Favorite
Full Tilt is putting up $50k in prize money which players can win to promote the match.
Players who deposit $20 or more and earn at least 50 Full Tilt Points between August 28 and September 7 will receive one ticket for the $10K Gus Supporters Freeroll or the $10K Viktor Supporters Freeroll, which both take place on September 13—the day before the match.
When the match has finished, players who entered the winner’s freeroll will then be entered for a $30K Heads Up Showdown Flip Freeroll on September 15.
Players who rail the match online while logged in, will be entered into a prize draw to win a $635 FTOPS Main Event ticket.
Blom and Hansen Big Losers This Year
Viktor Blom is also having a bad year—his losses in 2014 so far add up to a disturbing $1.8 million.
The smart money may be on Blom, but if the players poll produces a demand that the third game they play is one of the less well known variants offered by Full Tilt, such as Irish Poker, the match could be too close to call.
