There is still time for CIS and Baltic regional players to play heads up against world reknowned poker pro Gus Hansen on TV. Full Tilt Poker’s new TV show “Poker Pro Battle” is aimed at an audience from the Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic countries and has proven to be quite popular as there are only three seats left for the qualifiers to appear on the show.
Those players who make it through will have a chance to play against some of the region’s best players including Dominykas Karmazinas, Konstantin Puchkov, Oleksii Kovalchuk, Andrey Zaichenko and Sergey Ribachenko. They will match each other in a 6-max SnG tournament plus another qualifier for a grand payout of $12,000. Moving on to six winners participating in a final SnG tournament worth $35,000 and bragging rights of having faced off Gus Hansen.
There is just one more qualifier remaining on Saturday, November 16th and after that the freeroll event until the Poker Pro Battle concludes. Gus Hansen stated “This should be a great event with a lot of talented poker players. I have a lot of Russian friends in Kiev, and I look forward to making some new ones during the show, that is, if they forgive me after I beat them all”.
