Full Tilt Team Finish Strong at WSOP Tournament

18 Jul 2006

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Team Full Tilt members Andy Bloch and Phil Ivey proved again why they are two of the best all-around players in poker, finishing second and third respectively in the World Series of Poker's prestigious $50,000 HORSE tournament.

Bloch and eventual tournament winner Chip Reese played heads up for more than seven hours before the marathon battle ended when Bloch's inside-straight draw failed to connect in the tournament's final hand. Bloch collected $1,029,600 for his incredible performance at his second final table of the 2006 WSOP.

Fellow Team Full Tilt member Phil Ivey also made his second final table of the WSOP, and earned $617,760 for his third-place finish.

With seats in this tournament costing $50,000 each, the WSOP's HORSE tournament attracted 143 of the world's best players competing for one of the WSOP's most coveted titles. Unlike the $10,000 Main Event which features more than 8,000 professionals and amateurs playing No-Limit Texas Hold 'em, the HORSE tournament is almost strictly a professional event, with players having to be proficient at a variety of poker games, including Hold 'em, Omaha 8/Better, Razz, Seven-Card Stud, and Seven Card Stud 8/Better.

In a game that demands so much of its players, it is little wonder that three of Full Tilt Poker's professional representatives, including two members of Team Full Tilt, reached the final table. In addition to Bloch and Ivey, Full Tilt Poker's David Singer also reached the final table, earning $411,840 for sixth place. Fellow Full Tilt Poker professional, Gavin Smith just missed the final table, taking home $205,920 for his 11th-place finish.

"Andy's performance in the WSOP's ultimate test of all-around skill shows how deep Team Full Tilt's talent runs," said fellow Full Tilt pro Howard Lederer.
