Full Tilt Poker vs PokerStars

Posted on 28 February 2013 by "T".

It seems like there will be a challenge between Team PokerStars Pro and Full Tilt Poker's The Professionals at the the 2013 EPT London (March 5-16). It started last week with Gus Hansen sending a Tweet to Daniel Negreanu reminding him of a classic hand they played on High Stakes Poker in 2006.

It didn't take long before Daniel Negreanu Retweeted...

The two pros continued banter each other on Twitter over the next few days and it all ended with Daniel Negreanu challenging Gus Hansen and the rest of The Professionals (Tom 'durrr' Dwan and Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom) to play against him and another 2 from Team PokerStars Pro. Gus Hansen accepted the challenge and said that he only had to confirm with Blom and Dwan (still not confirmed).

A few hours ago Daniel revealed his picks for the match and also suggested that they should buy-in for $50k each and play a best-of-three heads-up format online at the 2013 EPT London. Check out the video below for more information.

If I would bet I would go for the Team PokerStars Pro. Ok, The Professionals are also very good (of course, or else they wouldn’t be there) but PS rules FTP so PS would always have its best pros on the main group and the others “almost as good” on their affiliate FTP.

Let's hope that Isildur and Durr will confirm the match and this can get interesting. I'll also put my money on Pokerstars pro, if I could.
After all Pokerstars controls Full tit, so it wouldn't be that of a surprise.
But in poker, as in poker everything can happen.
Especially when we are speaking about pro's.
Heads up I think Isildur can take them all down, although Negreanu can "read' the situations happening. We will wait and see Smile

lol @daniel: "i was looking at your graph upside-down". back to the promotion itself- clearly stars are trying to make something happen, traffic on full tilt imo is not that good, i think stars expected to see way bigger traffic- still time to improve & knowing that there are some wise heads behind management team at stars (not to mention the funds) i think full tilt has a good chance to get back on track- i think traffic has to be around 70-80% of the usual stars traffic...

I still haven’t seen any graphs about FTP traffic but it’s still soon to talk about that. We have already had some big events there, and now with FTCOOP more players are entering, but we also have to remember that USA is out of the game by now, which means for sure a big decrease everywhere.

Question? about the players ... hasn't Isildur1 kicked Ike's ass on a 1M superstar showdown ... hasnt' Isildur kicked Daniel's ass on a HU match they had long time ago ... I don't know anything about Elky's HU gaming ... I think, because of Isildur and Durrr, that FTP has a natural talent handicup on this challenge ... anyway I hope Daniel Negreanu beats Gus ... and I think Isildur will win his game ... he is the toughest ... Big Smile

There is too many players on pokerstars, it's full all the time. FT poker has lower amount of players i'm sure but still enough. I don't care about these... Playing for a real money, you need to get some rakeback, without that you can't do much. There is no rakeback on pokerstars...

G'day mates

Well I would put my money on Daniel and the PStars team players whom he has chosen to help him take Gus and the boy money.
I might be a little biased however because Daniel is my favorite pro player and a fellow Canadian Smile

be cool

well I transferred money from PokerStars to qualify for the tickets in this event. so I will keep posted and see what you guys think who's going to win. I have an I idea but I'm always willing to hear others opinions!
 kilak28/03/2013 13:48:05 GMT
Backed all the Full tilt players.. What a joke that was. They showed no great interest in the game really.. Ekly's style totally counter acted Isi's aggression and he just picked him off at will.

FTP will shit on them...seriously.

The only way PS will win is if they get very lucky with cards that is disproportionate amounts of good hands.
 pochui17/09/2013 12:31:58 GMT
what's up with the old threads?

Hey Petkus dude, u know it's not necessary to comment in threads who are 6 months old...u can earn your way to fortune by responding to recent threads as well...

@sergejcho- no one can steal money from u, if u have no money...that's my experience so far, have $0 roll everywhere and sleep calmly...
