Canadian wins Full Tilt Poker freeroll

Gotta Get that Paper, Dog

These winter days may seem cold but the online poker world is heating up at Full Tilt Poker: another player walked away with free cash last weekend.

This time around it was Lance Murray, a 26-year-old player in Nova Scotia, Canada, who topped the weekly $3,000 freeroll for players at Full Tilt Poker.

The tattoo artist has been playing poker since he was 13, and plays poker daily now. That experience paid off with a $780 win on Saturday after he climbed his way to victory from a short stack.

"I lost most of my chips really early, so I played very conservatively to stay in," Murray, who plays as drumandbass11, said about the tournament. "On the last hand, I had pocket aces, which I slow-played, and luckily sucked him in for all of his chips. I got lucky quite a bit too."

The Top 10 players in the freeroll were:

Place Name Prize
1st drumandbass11 $780
2nd Darkangel71 $495
3rd Tyfoon777 $375
4th TMDAN $292.50
5th dglizda $217.50
6th takotako $157.50
7th RODDOG23 $105
8th mick skittles $82.50
9th sonnystorm $63
10th Sapo ITA $37.50

So what does Murray plan to do with that extra $780 padding his bankroll? Play more poker, of course. It's more than likely that that play will also take place at Full Tilt Poker since he already plays there daily.


"It's the best site online without a doubt," Murray said when asked about Full Tilt Poker.

He's also a fan of, which he visits when he wants to check out a new poker site.

"I love it," he said. "It's the only place I use to look for new poker rooms."
