The Entities at Wicked Chops Poker broke the news Friday that Full Tilt Poker will announce sponsorship of new major live poker tournaments. Although it will not be marketed as a series they will have a number of events including one reportedly in London.
The biggest bomb of all dropped in the article is when the Full Tilt sponsored tournaments are taking place none of their sponsored pros will be allowed to play in any other major events or tournament series. If true this could have serious implications for other events. One has to wonder if this is a smart decision or not.
One other item mentioned was some 'good for poker' tie-ins. An item that could be included as being good for poker would be a major network deal. Full Tilt already has a relationship with NBC including Poker After Dark and sponsorship of the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship.
Everything is speculation until Full Tilt comes out with a formal announcement, which is expected as early as Monday. We will bring you the news as soon as we hear anything.
