Full Tilt Poker signs Tureniec

Michael Tureniec

Swedish player Michael Tureniec has officially signed onboard Full Tilt Poker as one of the site's Red Pros.

Tureniec has put together a remarkable string of cashes over the last few months, with a win in one of the side events of the Amsterdam Classics of Poker, 19th place in the Aussie Millions and runner-up in EPT London, for a total of $961,902. His lifetime live winnings are over $1.3 million.

Surprisingly, Tureniec is the first Swedish player to be signed by industry giant Full Tilt, and will now play alongside a legendary team that includes Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius.


Tureniec mentioned it was one of his dreams to be part of a sponsored team on Full Tilt. Thanks to his agent - Vegas Group in collaboration with Poker Icons - it has come true.

"It feels great to be the first Swede to sign with Full Tilt Poker," said Tureniec from Australia. "This is naturally a large step forward in my poker career."

At 23 years old, Tureniec has only been playing poker for five years, but has established himself as a dominant online player and can now be found online under his own name with his own avatar. Tureniec will also have an exclusive table with his namesake.

Tureniec is already preparing for a great 2009 and will be playing a large number of high-stakes tournaments while wearing the traditional red Full Tilt Poker patch.
