Gus Hansen and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, founding members of The Professionals at Full Tilt Poker, are two of the most dynamic players in poker.

They represent a new and innovative style of playing that challenges pre-established norms and accepted wisdoms. Each has brought something new to the table, changing the way poker is played.


Gus Hansen burst onto the scene in the early 2000s and wowed the world of poker with his exciting and unorthodox play en route to multiple WPT titles, a WSOP bracelet and an Aussie Millions Main Event crown.

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom is a true poker phenomenon. His meteoric rise over the course of a few months in late 2009 as the then-anonymous "Isildur1" drove frenzied speculation as to his true identity. His relentlessly aggressive play has inspired many to copy his high-octane style.


Both influential and entertaining, their "take no prisoners" approach to the game has been emulated by poker players around the world. Since their arrival on the scene, ranges have become wider, calls have become looser, and – to the delight of rail-birds everywhere – the games have become more exciting than ever.

The Professionals are among the most electrifying players ever to sit down at a poker table.
