Which Team Full Tilt Members and Red Pros will be offered new deals

As part of the settlement Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson and Rafe Furst are inegible to work for Full Tilt Poker in any capacity.

Of the remaining Team Full Tilt members and the plethora of red pros which players do you think will be part of the marketing relaunch in November, if any? Several but not even close to all Full Tilt Pros listed below

Team Full Tilt
Tom Dwan
Patrick Antonius (has signed with ipoker)
Gus Hansen
Erik Seidel
Phil Ivey
Erick Lindgren
Mike Matusow
John Juanda
Jennifer Harman
Andy Bloch
Phil Gordon
Allen Cunningham

Some Notable FTP Red Pros
Andy Black
Eli Elezra
Huck Seed
David Oppenheim
Roland De Wolfe
Vitaly Lunkin
Layne Flack
David Benyamine
Hendon Mob Guys
Team Cardrunners Guys
Brandon Adams
Shaun Buchanan
James Akenhead
Josh Arieh
Amanda Baker
Praz Bansi
Alan Boston
Steve Brecher
Richard Brodie
Erik Cajelais
John Cernuto
David Chiu
Scott Clements
John D'Agostino
Melanie Weisner
Mark Vos
Matt Hawrilenko
Eric Froelich
Scott Fischman
Greg Mueller
Annette Obrestad (now with Lockpoker)
David Grey
Peter Feldman
Nick Schulman
Vivek Rajkumar
Jon Turner
Steve Zolotow
Rob Hollink
Perry Friedman
Julian Gardner
Andrew Lichtenberger
Eddie Scharf
David Pham
John Phan
Chip and Karina Jett
Soren Kongsgaard
Nikki Jedlicka
Svetlana Gromenkova
Carlos Mortenson
Justin Smith
Gavin Smith
Jared Hamby
Hal Lubarsky
Biil and Kristy Gazes
MonsterDong
Scott Montgomery
David Singer
Keith, Matt and Paul Sexton
Lee Watkinson
Marco Traniello
Andrew Feldman (retired apparently)
Erica Schoenberg


My guess of the Team Full Tilt Pros
is that Durrrr and Gus would be most likely of the Team Full Tilt to be offered a deal. Juanda because of his marketing potential in Asia would be my 3rd choice.

Of the red pros, it would be exclusively international players
Canadians like Greg Mueller, Gavin Smith, Erik Cajelais, Shaun Buchanan etc..
Internatinal players that play a ton online like Soren Kongsgaard, Peter Feldman, Nikki Jedlicka, MonsterDong could be offered deals
Female international players like Svetlana Gromenkova
Marketable Brits like DeWolfe, Praz, Hendon Mob boys, Akenhead
Well known Asian players such as David Chiu, David Pham etc..

Be interesting to hear people's thoughts on who Full Tilt Poker will market come November.

Ivey, Dwan, Patrick, Gus most likely will be given deals but not sure about the rest.

Re: Which Team Full Tilt Members and Red Pros will be offered new deals

I think this is a really interesting question because of the US. For the bigger names like Ivey Stars will likely want lengthy contracts. With US regulation imminent, long contracts would preclude the possibility of these players signing with US companies which could be potentially much more lucrative for them.

Yeah I don't see some of the older Vegas based pros on team full tilt being offered very much unless they wanna get off their ass and go do some marketing.

Really dont think new ownership would pay the kind of money Ivey would demand now that he no longer gets a piece of the profits.

Paying 75% of the players on that list was FTP burning money

Re: Which Team Full Tilt Members and Red Pros will be offered new deals

Why would Ivey not want a deal if offered one? It seems there would be little downsides for him.......(apart from the odd pr measures)

I doubt that Kongsgaard will, since Full Tilt Poker won't apply for a Danish license, at least not in first place.

I wouldn't be surprised if they started out a pro team from scratch.

I hope they all stay in the hole they have been in the last 15 month!

I don't want to see any of these faces on FullTilt again especially not Ivey, Lindgren and Matusow!

75% or so of red pros weren't being paid much (if anything) beyond 100% rakeback at the time of Black Friday.

Also, I'm not sure OP knows who Peter Feldman is.

To answer the question, I would expect Stars to handle their FTP sponsorships in much the same way they handle their Stars sponsorships. They will select some of the more famous to be Team Pros, and probably have a Team Online for various countries as well. It will be a much smaller force than FTP ever had.

Don't Akenhead and The Hendon Mob now represent Genting Poker so i think that rules them out
