PokerStars vs. Full Tilt Poker: Looking at The Numbers

The PokerStars vs. Full Tilt Challenge is set for the EPT London and will feature some of the best cash game and tournament professionals in the world. Since the announcement of the lineups, the poker world has been buzzing with predictions of the outcome and analysis of the matchups.

The PokerStars team will feature players who have amassed over $33.1 million in tournament earnings. Isaac “Ike” Haxton has been a fixture in the high stakes games on PokerStars for several years and is considered one of the best heads up no limit hold’em players in the world. Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier has arguably been the most successful online and live tournament in the world for the past decade. Finally, Daniel “KidPoker” Negreanu is one of the most influential poker players in the world and has built an impressive live tournament resume.

Although the Full Tilt Team falls short to PokerStars in tournament earnings, the trio of Blom, Dwan, and Hansen are widely considered the top heads-up cash game players in the world. Tom “Durrr” Dwan is arguably considered the top poker player in the world and has amassed millions at high stakes games. Victor “Isildur1” Blom is considered one of the top heads up no-limit hold’em cash game players in the world. Gus “TheGreatDane” Hansen has been one of the top tournament players in the history of poker and regularly battles his two teammates at the high stakes tables.

Here are some of the results of the players.
