Full Tilt Player wins WSOP bracelet

Mark Vos

Mark Vos, a 22-year old pro player and Team Full Tilt member from Australia, became one of the youngest World Series of Poker bracelet winners in history after winning the $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event July 3.

Vos defeated a playing field of nearly 2,000 players when his Q-10 made trip queens, eliminating second-place finisher Nam Le, who held pocket sixes. Vos' performance earned him the coveted bracelet and a prize of $803,264.

Vos is one of the more recent additions to Team Rafe Furst earned his first WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em tournament.

"Mark Vos is a young player with superstar potential," said fellow Full Tilt Poker pro Howard Lederer. "His online success is well documented, but what he has already accomplished in just a few live major tournaments is truly remarkable."

"It's awesome, it was my day. I got lucky when I needed it and I couldn't be happier," said Vos.

In addition to Vos and Furst, Full Tilt Poker professional Carlos Mortensen reached his second final table of the 2006 WSOP, earning $73,344 for his ninth-place finish, while Full Tilt Poker's Toto Leonidas just missed the final table, earning $59,374 for finishing tenth.

As members of Team Full Tilt, Vos, Mortensen, Leonidas and Furst represent the online gaming site and play poker several hours a week in its poker rooms, helping online amateurs improve their game by offering tips through real-time chats at the tables. They are joined by 31 other top players at Full Tilt, including Andy Bloch, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Phil Gordon, Clonie Gowen, Jennifer Harman, the Hendon Mob, Phil Ivey, John Juanda, Howard Lederer, Mike Matusow, Huck Seed, and Erik Seidel, and among others.
