Written By: Kimberley | August 20, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

Fancy yourself as the next big poker star? Think you could take on the Pros and beat them at their own game? If so you need to head on over to Full Tilt Poker as they are giving one lucky player the chance to go heads-up against Gus Hansen no less!

Full Tilt Poker’s Satellite Hero started yesterday, Monday 19th August, and runs until Sunday 1st September. Here’s how it works. Players that satellite into any scheduled tournament and then go on to cash in that same tournament will automatically receive a free ticket into The Satellite Hero Freeroll, as well as receiving their cash prize. The top 126 players in the freeroll will then share over $3,000 worth of tickets for the MiniFTOPS XXIII event. But that is not all as the winner of The Satellite Freeroll will then go on to play heads-up against Gus Hansen.

The heads-up match against Hansen will see the lucky winner start proceedings with a 2:1 chip advantage and if they go onto beat the Danish professional they will then be awarded a ticket to every single MiniFTOPS XXIII event, valued at over $1,200.

Shane Lightman is Head of Marketing at Full Tilt Poker and he had this to say about his companies great new initiative. He said, “Full Tilt Poker’s satellite tournaments represent great value, letting players compete for big prize pools for a fraction of the cost, but Satellite Hero brings this to a whole new level. It gives our players a shot at taking on a true poker legend and the opportunity to bag tickets to all the MiniFTOPS XXIII events along the way.”

It is great to see companies like Full Tilt Poker offering normal poker players the chance to take on one of the games very best in Gus Hansen. Who knows a win against the Danish superstar and a subsequent win in the MiniFTOPS XXIII Event could see a new Gus Hansen on the block. If you think you have what it takes then head on over to Full Tilt Poker now and satellite your way into this great event.
