Wednesday 26th May 2004
TiltWare, LLC, a Los Angeles-based software design and licensing company, has announced launch of Full Tilt Poker, a new poker room expected to be officially up and online next month. What makes Full Tilt poker different, however, is that TiltWare has enlisted the help some of the finest poker players around in designing the product. Andy Bloch, Chris Ferguson, Phil Gordon, Clonie Gowen, Phil Ivey, John Juanda, Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren and Erik Seidel are just some of the celebrated names who have offered their time and experience in order to make the project a success; and the people at TiltWare are confident that Full Tilt will, as result, be a superior poker experience.
'Our entire team is passionate about poker and is intrigued by this cultural phenomenon that is sweeping the country,' said Bob Wolf, chief marketing officer of TiltWare, LLC. 'We ultimately formed TiltWare to develop better, more effective online poker software, but could never have been successful without the expertise and talent of some of the world's leading poker players that comprise Team Full Tilt. Together, we are making online poker a fun, seamless and secure experience.'
Collectively known as ‘Team Full Tilt’, the poker stars will also be around to play users for free or for low stake money games, the winnings of which will go to charity. Chris Ferguson, 2000 World Series Poker Champion, said, “I, along with the rest of Team Full Tilt, are thrilled to be involved in the development of the Full Tilt Poker site and encourage more poker fans to take the game online, as the site caters to not only poker enthusiasts, but also to beginners who may feel intimidated to play in a casino, Full Tilt Poker will allow users of all skill levels to become involved in the game and learn from real champions.'
