Viktor Blom and Gus Hansen are no longer sponsoring the deal with the company Full Tilt! Their contracts are not renewed, thereby ending any speculation about this topic – “The Professionals” is definitely no longer exist. The third member of the group, Tom Dwan, has left the team earlier this year.
Three of them have become the faces of the popular platform of 2012, when PokerStars bought a former rival site. Before “Black Friday” Full Tilt had a large number of top professionals under the sponsorship contract.
Dane Gus Hansen, who has more than 20 million minus from the starting of this website, as well as Viktor Blom who recorded 3 million minus, regardless of the bad balance is undoubtedly the most popular group of poker players ever. There are some rumors that the two Scandinavian transferred their sponsorship to PokerStars, but there is still no official confirmation.
If this does occur, they will become members of a handpicked society in which already included Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Selbst and Liv Boeree. Before Blom’s arrangement with Full Tilt, he had a sponsorship deal with PokerStars.
