Full Tilt player makes WSOP final table

19 Jul 2007

UBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– Full Tilt Poker's Lee Watkinson finished strong at the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event. Watkinson took eighth place at the final table and earned $585,699 for his impressive play.

Making his way through a field of 6,358 players, Watkinson displayed the poise and patience that separates the pros from the amateurs. Watkinson was eliminated at the final table by eventual champion Jerry Yang. Yang made an amazing call of Watkinson's all-in bet as Watkinson was trying to gather enough chips to make a run at the title.

Building upon his success at last year's WSOP where he won his first bracelet in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Event, Watkinson demonstrated why he is considered one of the game's best players. The attention from his final table appearance this year should help shine the spotlight on one of Watkinson's passions - animal welfare. Watkinson has been helping to build a sanctuary for captive chimpanzees and will donate a portion of his winnings to this cause.

"Lee won his first bracelet in 2006 and has followed up that performance with a remarkable run the 2007 Main Event," said fellow Full Tilt Poker pro Howard Lederer. "With his patience and tremendous skill, I expect Lee to have many more high finishes in the years to come."

In addition to Watkinson, 65 of the world's best professional poker players represent Full Tilt Poker, and spend several hours a week online helping amateur players learn the game by sharing their poker knowledge through real-time chats at the virtual tables.

"Team Full Tilt," is a select group of the world's finest professional poker players, including Chris Ferguson, Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, Andy Bloch, Phil Gordon, Clonie Gowen, John Juanda, Mike Matusow, Gus Hansen, and Allen Cunningham who have collectively won 31 WSOP bracelets. Full Tilt Poker offers players the unique opportunity to Learn, Chat and Play poker with the best poker pros in the game.
