Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars and Now One Company
(As part of an agreement made with the US government in 2012, Full Tilt Poker has been acquired by PokerStars, which has created the world’s largest online poker site. Therefore the links in this article will point to the PokerStars website.)
Rush Week at Full Tilt Poker
Poker players such as yourself can experience the blistering pace of the world’s fastest poker game to earn up to $250 in cash and win free entry to an exclusive $50K Rush Week Freeroll at FullTilt Poker. Running from Monday, November 29th through Sunday, December 5th. Full Tilt Poker’s Rush Week offers even more reasons to play Rush Poker.
By earning as little as ten Full Tilt Points a day playing Rush Poker ring games, Sit & Gos, and tournaments during Rush Week, online poker players can earn extra cash, up to $250. In addition, all Rush Poker Tournament and Sit & Go final table players will receive entry into the exclusive $50K Rush Week Freeroll. Full Tilt Poker always creates many opportunities for their players to keep coming back for more, and Rush Poker is just another example. Now that Full Tilt Poker is owned by PokerStars, making PokerStars the world’s biggest online poker room, I think we can keep on expecting great promotional offers coming our way.
All guarantee Rush Poker Tournaments will have their guarantees doubled for the duration of Rush Week, while the $80K Guarantee, on Saturday, and the Sunday Brawl will be converted to Rush Poker Tournaments.
Rush Poker Mobile is an Android-based application that uses Flash, so if you have an Apple product like an iPhone, you’re temporarily out of luck. There are currently around two dozen supported devices listed on Full Tilt Poker’s website with brands including Motorola, Acer, AT&T, Samsung, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Check the Full Tilt site for updates.
Get into Rush Week and get yourself back at the felt. Rush Poker enables you to earn Full Tilt Points faster than any other game.
Miss California Teen USA Title in the Hands of Professional Poker Player Matt Vengrin
Professional poker player Matt Vengrin was taking a break from holding Kings and Queens to help crown the next Miss California Teen USA. The Absolute Poker pro had been a celebrity judge in the recent Miss California Teen USA Pageant 2009. Some guys have all the luck!
As a poker player, I know how fierce competition can be. Just like playing in the World Series of Poker, these girls are in for a grueling but fun weekend and I’m excited to be an integral part of the experience.
Poker Pro Matt Vengrin
Matt Vengrin is one of online poker’s most successful young poker players. In a little over two years, the 24-year-old has won nearly $2 million playing poker at Absolute Poker, a number of other sites and at land-based casinos. In 2009 alone, the online poker pro has amassed six top 10 finishes in several popular online poker tournaments, including a 1st place finish in a recent No Limit Hold’em event for $61,600 in February and a 2nd place finish in a $100k tournament for $21,327 in January. Most recently, Vengrin finished strong in the Main Event of the 2009 Aruba Poker Classic, a $5,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament held at the Radisson Aruba Resort & Casino. Vengrin collected $13,820 for his 27th place finish.
Being surrounded by beautiful women is anything but foreign to Vengrin. The poker professional sits alongside Lacey Jones, one of the hottest women in poker, on Absolute Poker’s team of pros. Most recently, Reality TV bombshell Trishelle signed on as Absolute Poker’s celebrity endorser, making the team even more attractive. Online poker players at AbsolutePoker.com can employ the online poker site’s free Absolute Buddy software to discover where Matt Vengrin is seated. He will be featured in red text while playing at Absolute Poker’s tables under the name vengmoney.
