Online Poker Players Earn Black Card Pro Status at Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt PokerFull Tilt Poker has been back in action for some time now and the site recently announced the online poker players who have made the Black Card Pro Poker team. This is a new sponsorship program that provides players with incentives for reaching major milestones. Full Tilt announced that eleven online poker players qualified for the new program and one more should make the cut after the mini-FTOPS series completes later this month.

As part of the Black Card Pro status, players will earn the following incentives:

  • The choice of $20k FTOPS entries and mini FTOPS or a $20K clearable bonus
  • 100% Rakeback
  • Red Name Status (which makes the player identifiable at the poker table for six months)

Players were given the opportunity to earn Black Card status six months ago. The online poker room worked with players to determine what criteria they should use to choose who is able to gain this status. The site finally decided to choose a select combination of methods. This included using adjusted cash game winnings according to poker hand as well as winners of leaderboard tournaments.

The winners based on poker category at Full Tilt Poker are:
