|With the sheer volume of players now entering major poker tournaments, it's amazing to realise just how successful the Full Tilt Poker stable has been. Despite competition from quality players, Full Tilt continues to come up with victories in the big tournaments.|
The latest victories have seen Victor Ramdin and Erick Lindgren dominate the competition in tournaments nearly 3,000 miles apart as they both claimed victories at the WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic and the Bellagio Five-Start World Poker Classic.
In Connecticut, Victor Ramdin overcame 430 other players to claim first place at the WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic and take home a $1.3 million prize - the biggest of his career. In addition, Ramdin’s victory also earned him a seat at the WPT $25,000 buy-in Championship tournament at the Bellagio later this month.
Erick Lindgren will also be playing in the WPT Championship event, after winning his $25,000 buy-in and more than $260,000 in first-place money at the $3,000 Bellagio Five-Star Poker Classic.
Full Tilt member Howard Lederer, said, 'Victor and Erick both had incredible showings last week. Their respective wins once again show the depth of talent at Full Tilt Poker, and are great confidence builders for both players as they head toward the WPT Championship and then, the WSOP.'
