Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2006
Full Tilt Poker pros Victor Ramdin and Erick Lindgren dominated the competition in tournaments nearly 3,000 miles apart last weekend, claiming victories at the WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic and the Bellagio Five-Start World Poker Classic.
In Connecticut, Victor Ramdin outlasted 430 other players to claim first place at the $10,000 buy-in, WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic. Ramdin’s $1.3 million payday was the biggest of his career. In addition, Ramdin’s victory also earned him a seat at the WPT $25,000 buy-in Championship tournament at the Bellagio later this month.
Team Full Tilt member Erick Lindgren will also be playing in the WPT Championship event, after winning his $25,000 buy-in and more than $260,000 in first-place money at the $3,000 Bellagio Five-Star Poker Classic. Lindgren beat 227 other players to claim his victory. Last year, Lindgren finished sixth in this tournament, claiming $25,000 in prize money.
“Victor and Erick both had incredible showings last week,” said Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer. “Their respective wins once again show the depth of talent at Full Tilt Poker, and are great confidence builders for both players as they head toward the WPT Championship and then, the WSOP.”
