Full Tilt Poker Selects Professional Representatives for UK and Ireland Poker Tour 2013

                Full Tilt Poker has prepared for this August's UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) by carefully choosing a squad of professional players to act as its ambassadors at the games. The team of representatives is drawn from some of the online poker network's very best pros and will be hoping to make an impressive showing at the tables.
                The four ambassadors coming to this year's UKIPT include Martins Adeniya, Ben Jenkins, Sinem Melin and Dermot Blain. This group of pros will kick off their participation by joining the UKIPT for its Galway Festival leg, battling it out in the €1,100 buy-in no limit hold'em main event and a number of other tournaments taking place during the Irish series. The Galway Festival will serve as a homecoming of sorts for Dermot Blain, an Irish poker player who rocketed into the professional ranks after winning the 2009 Asian Poker Tour's Macau main event and taking fifth place at the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe's main event. Blain's fellow Full Tilt ambassadors — Adeniya, Jenkins and Melin — hail from the United Kingdom and are similarly accomplished.
                The four sponsored professionals playing at this year's UKIPT mark the third time that Full Tilt Poker has created small groups of players specifically to advertise the company at live international events. A statement from PokerStars' Pro, Celebrity and VIP Marketing Senior Manager, Dustin Iannotti, said that the four "tour ambassadors will help redefine what it means to represent a poker site."
