Team PokerStars Pro and Full Tilt Poker's The Professionals will battle it out on Sunday during EPT London. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Gus Hansen and Tom "durrrr" Dwan (Full Tilt) will face Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Daniel Negreanu and Isaac "luvthewnba" Haxton in three heads-up challenge matches, featuring 15 minute blind levels and with starting stacks set at 3,000.

| Sounds like a good line up and a nice promotion!|
Depends on how Viktor is running that day but i would go for this:
Isildur1 Haxton and Hansen all to win.

| This will be awesome! Here’s a good reason for me to deposit again. Besides filling my cashier again with playable money, I even get the chance to win some more with the bets and regarding tickets for the $10k freeroll, very nice promo. Once I decide to leave my prognostics about an HU tourney of big guys, I don’t know if I should do it this time, but I will sure vote on the poll, so all you have to do is look for the tendency, I’m sure it will be a good help for those who are betting for serious on this at the site.

| the thing i like most about this promo is the fact that u can win up to $100 for free without even hitting the tables: just deposit or even transfer from stars account any amount up to $100 guess the outcome of the 3 matches and you have free money!|
now the tough part- guessing the outcome lots of possibilities, i would go for isildur, durrrr & daniel

| I have to be honest, at first i thought there's no chance FTP would win this, but looking again at the schedule, and counting with the surprise factor of these games (it's possible that one of the HU is still on when a second one starts, they have 3 hours separating them; ok, they start with few chips, but these are the pros), i guess there are good probabilitiies for that to happen. And although things use to happen on the other way, the first game will determine the team that wins.|

| Full tilt poker will win in this cool event or sure!|
The only worries that i have are with Gus Hansen, he is good but sometimes don't know when to stop.
As for the other two games Viktor and Tom are way better HU players than the Pro team reps.

| That'll be something to watch definately....|
I figure the way Tom Dwan plays,...he learned his skills playing BrM freerolls,.... That's how folks in the BrMs seem to play.....with junk...
He's the junk king,.... he can turn JUNK into gold....

| It's a very cool competition to heat things up in the poker field,|
cause FullTilt's traffic is not the one expected since it returned.
My predictions match with bulletooth's, i'm going for Isildur, Haxton, Hansen.
So i guess FullTilt team will have the upper hand.
