The End of "The Professionals": Gus Hansen and Viktor Blom No Longer Part of FTP
As announced by Full Tilt on Tuesday, the room has decided not to renew its sponsorship contracts with Sweden
's Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Denmark's Gus Hansen.
Rumors about changes in the relationships between Full Tilt and the two players started late last week, after the poker room launched a brand new version of its website with no visible reference of Hansen or Blom.
"This follows a year-long review of the Full Tilt brand and a decision to move away from pro-centric advertising to focus on the experiences and stories of the vast majority of our players," the room's spokesperson continued.
The decision to not renew Hansen and Blom's sponsorship contracts comes several months after Tom "Durrrr" Dwan decided to no longer be part of the room's pro team "The Professionals."
