Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) July 8, 2005
Poker veteran David Grey captured one of the World Series of PokerÂs most prestigious bracelets on Wednesday by winning the $5,000 buy-in No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Lo-Ball Draw tournament. The victory gives Grey the second WSOP bracelet of his career, and marks the fourth bracelet won by a representative of online poker site http://www.fulltiltpoker.com during this yearÂs preliminary events -- a feat matched by no other online poker site.
GreyÂs victory in the final open preliminary tournament of the 2005 World Series of Poker earned him $365,135 and marks a fitting end to a string of preliminary events dominated by Full Tilt PokerÂs professionals, including Allen Cunningham who won this yearÂs first open event.
Throughout the WSOPÂs 34 open preliminary tournaments, Full Tilt PokerÂs 27 professional representatives have earned a total of $4,223,616 or an amazing 8.6% of the total $48,871,048 prize pool. Making those numbers even more impressive is the fact that Full Tilt PokerÂs representatives accounted for approximately 2% of the total players in the 34 open events.
"David has been known as one of the top cash game players in the world for the past 15 years, but with this second WSOP bracelet, heÂs shown that heÂs also one of the top tournament players in the game," said GreyÂs long-time friend and fellow http://www.fulltiltpoker.com representative Howard Lederer.
