Full Tilt Poker Signs Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom

Perhaps the two most legendary names in the online poker world will be joining Gus Hansen as part of the new team of Full Tilt Poker pros known as The Professionals.

Full Tilt Poker confirmed that Tom "durrrr" Dwan will be re-patching his clothes with the Full Tilt Poker logo. In addition, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom (who first made his name in the nosebleed cash games at Full Tilt) will be sponsored by Full Tilt Poker when the site relaunches on November 6.

The pair will join Gus Hansen, who was announced last week as the first member of the new Full Tilt team.

Dwan was previously a part of Team Full Tilt before Black Friday; in fact he was the last member to be signed to the team one step beyond simple 'Red Pro' status. He and Gus Hansen are, thus far, the only players from the old team to return. 

Blom first burst onto the online poker scene at Full Tilt's cash game tables in 2009, taking on the likes of Dwan and his fellow Full Tilt teammates at dizzying stakes with relentless aggression.

He was signed and unmasked by PokerStars in 2011, before he mutually parted ways with the site - clearly, he is a better fit for the high-octane cash game action that Full Tilt Poker is famous for.

Full Tilt Poker will relaunch on November 6. For more information you can see our recent news:

    @19 +1
    I really cant see why ppl are so enthusiastic about.
    What the hell do we have from those pros anyways???
    I mean they are good poker players and probably good guys as well, but again not much for us to gain whatsoever.

    @19&@20 that the rackebacl is gone might suck....but singing big names in Poker means that they will atracct allot of new players who aint hard to beat fish and donks. sponsering big names is good for the players and the poker industry!!! So lets just wait and see what els stars has in mind... i aint no fan of stars trust me!! but if they didnt buy ftp and the GBT deal went tru we would be fucked!!

    Not really, "big" names are hardly known to non-poker community. Most of the people, not involved in poker, ergo, potential new players, have no clue who is Isildur or Dwan. They might have heard of Ivey and possibly Chan, but thats it.

    So, signing them is not that big a deal.
