Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 30, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

Full Tilt Poker may not have declared who their three sponsored players at the 2010 World Series of Poker final table will be, but they have decided to sign James Dempsey as the newest member of Team Full Tilt. Dempsey had a coming out party at the 2010 WSOP, which made him a very hot commodity in the poker world.

The 27 year-old poker pro from Brighton, England had a terrific 2010 WSOP where he not only won his first WSOP bracelet, but he also finished 2nd in another event, as well as recording two other in-the-money finishes.

Becoming a “Red Pro” at Full Tilt is one of the most coveted sponsorships in all of poker, where players receive a terrific endorsement deal for giving up their online anonymity and playing under their real name. Dempsey will join fellow Brits Praz Bansi and Richard Ashby–both of whom won a WSOP bracelet in 2010—as Team Full Tilt Poker members.

Dempsey has won a total of $738,655 in live poker tournaments, to go along with his considerable online poker earnings under a number of different screen-names. According to PocketFives.com, Dempsey’s online wins total over $1 million.
