Gus Hansen, Viktor Blom Out at Full Tilt Poker as Company Focuses More on Casino

Big name Scandinavian poker pros Gus Hansen and Viktor Blom have been given their walking papers by Full Tilt Poker as it appears new parent company Amaya begins focusing more on its casino games.

"We can confirm that Full Tilt’s sponsorship of Viktor Blom and Gus Hansen has expired," a spokesperson from Full Tilt told PokerNews. "We would like to wish Viktor and Gus all the best in their future endeavors."

Both have long been associated with Full Tilt sister site PokerStars.

The spokesperson added: "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.”

Full Tilt Poker also appears to be focusing more on Internet casino games and less on poker, as the spokesperson alluded to. "Full Tilt will celebrate the excitement, fun, and intrinsic enjoyment of playing our poker, blackjack, roulette, and slots games.”
