Full Tilt Poker vs. PokerStars:  Professionals Head-to-Head Stats Revealed

LONDON, UK –It’s just three days until Team PokerStars Pros take on Full Tilt Poker’s The Professionals in the ultimate heads-up showdown at the London Poker Festival, so it’s time to have a look at the key stats...

On paper Daniel Negreanu’s group of Team PokerStars Pros look set to crush Gus Hansen and his Full Tilt Poker Professionals, with the PokerStars Pros having between them won more than $30 million in live tournament prizes and $3 million online. In comparison, the Full Tilt Poker Professionals have approximately $15 million in live tournament cashes and less than $1 million online.

However, Full Tilt Poker’s Professionals have two heads-up specialists in Tom Dwan and Viktor Blom, while PokerStars has just one in Isaac Haxton. Could that be the decisive factor on the day?

The Team PokerStars Pros will be battling against the Full Tilt Poker Professionals in a series of heads-up matches to be played on Full Tilt Poker on Sunday, March 10 from 2pm GMT.
