Poker Agency Targets European Full Tilt Pros

Check Raise Management Says “Black Friday” Opportunity For European Players; Targets Full Tilt Pros


Jeff LisandroPoker agency Check Raise Management today issued an appeal to European-based poker pros, particularly, Full Tilt red pros, to get in touch to discuss new sponsorship opportunities in the wake of Black Friday.

Operations director Nick Ferro described the events of “Black Friday” and its aftermath as a “massive opportunity to stake their claim as a new force and try to fill the void that Full Tilt appear to have left behind. At WSOP 2011 a player like Jake Cody would have been snapped up in a heartbeat; it’s insane to have the youngest ever winner of a triple crown unsponsored.

“However now the dust has settled, poker sites and sports books are looking to build teams with exciting, talented players. So I openly invite any Euro based pro’s to get in contact with us and talk about their future in strict confidence and see how we can help,” he added.

Check Raise Management represents a number of high profile poker pros including recent WSOP bracelet winners Matt Perrins and Jake Cody, Toby Lewis, James Bord, Sam Trickett and Jeff Lisandro.
