João Barbosa signs with Full Tilt Poker
Thanks to his phenomenal achievements during the past year, the Portuguese superstar, João Barbosa, was awarded as Portugal's “Player of the year” in 2008.  The first place finish in Warsaw gave him approx. 367,000 Euros. He also won the Unibet Open in Madrid and managed to get “in the money” in both EPT London and EPT Barcelona. Despite several EPT tournaments left of the year, Barbosa has already broken the record: “Most cashes in one season”.

João Barbosa is the first Portuguese to be part of Full Tilt's famous roster of poker players including several superstars, e.g. Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen, Howard Lederer, Michael Tureniec, Soren Kongsgaard to mention a few.

João Barbosa is represented by the poker agency – Poker Icons.

The contract means that Barbosa will be representing Full Tilt Poker at larger competitions and he is now also one of the awarded players with his own avatar that plays with his real name at Full Tilt.

When João Barbosa, who is an educated computer engineer, participated in the EPT tournament in Warsaw last November, it was his fourth EPT event and the third in which he finished “in the money”.  The final table was played on his 26 year birthday, and a better present than a first price was nothing he could have wished for. The success is now complete with one of the best poker sponsor deals in the world.

- I feel very honored and grateful to represent Full Tilt Poker, says a happy João Barbosa.
