Full Tilt Poker Pros Finish On Top - Tuesday 7th of February 2006

ATLANTIC CITY – Full Tilt Poker pros John D'Agostino and Erick Lindgren each had very strong showings at the Borgata Winter Poker Open, finishing second and third respectively out of a field of 381. Additionally, Peter Feldman, who earned his $10,000 tournament entry by playing online at Full Tilt Poker, just missed the final table, finishing seventh.

D'Agostino's second-place finish earned him $591,312, the biggest payday of his professional career. D'Agostino's previous career payday came at the Borgata Poker Open in September 2005 when he took home $349,865 for his fourth-place finish.

Lindgren, a member of Team Full Tilt, also improved on his results from his last trip to the Borgata Casino in September 2005. At that appearance, he took home nearly $15,000 for his 29th-place finish. This time, Lindgren walked away from the tournament in third position and $282,721 richer than when he started.

Full Tilt Poker's pros weren't the only players who turned in impressive performances at the Borgata. Peter Feldman, a regular player at the online poker site, finished seventh in the live tournament after winning his $10,000 buy-in playing at Full Tilt Poker. Feldman, who missed the televised final table by one seat, earned nearly $74,000 for his strong performance.

"John and Erick both played very well all week," said Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer. "Their results show just how deep the talent pool at Full Tilt Poker runs."

D'Agostino and Lindgren represent one of the fastest growing online poker sites, FullTiltPoker.com, and spend several hours a week online helping amateur players learn the game by sharing their poker knowledge through real-time chats at the virtual tables. Along with D'Agostino and Lindgren, 31 other top poker professionals play at www.FullTiltPoker.com, where they have helped to create the best possible atmosphere for players who want to improve their games.
