Canadian Pro Peter Jetten Joins Full Tilt PokerJanuary 10, 2011 6:15 am
Full Tilt has just announced the addition of poker pro Peter Jetten to their talented stable of Red Pros. Commenting on his joining the site, the 25 year-old Jetten said:
“I’m very excited to be with Full Tilt. I’ve always liked them. They are a very reputable site so I’m proud to represent them. I may even get a little more recognition because of it.”
The Canadian player’s poker career got off to a modest start back in 2004, when he cashed in two online Freeroll tournaments for a total of $75. However, with such a meagre start Jetten was able to move onto low stakes tournaments and then cash games on his way to making a $100k profit by the end of a year’s play.
Since then Jetten has utilised his poker talents on both the online and live arenas and is currently showing a profit of $1,842,599 from live tournaments, as well as $652,236 from online competitions. Jetten’s results are made all the more impressive when you consider he has also carved out a lucrative career for himself as a renowned high stakes cash game player.
Peter Jetten started his live tournament career in 2006, when he cashed in December for $15,600 at the Bellagio Five Diamond World Poker Classic. By 2007, he had gone on to add a further $121,697 to his bankroll before things really took off for him in 2008 after a $946,870 winning year, including a 2nd place finish at the WSOP PLO World Championship for $528,257.
In 2009, Jetten made a respectable $127,110 on the tournament circuit before turning in yet another highly successful performance in 2010 worth $631,322, including making it through to 54th place at the WSOP Main Event for $168,556.
In total, the talented Canadian has had now had 20 cashes and 6 final table finishes for $1,842,599, although he is still currently chasing his first outright win.
Outside of poker, Peter Jetten combines his love of travelling with scuba diving and has made dives near California’s Catalina island, as well as Australia, and Mexico
