Carlos “The Matador” Mortensen Joins Full Tilt ProsIts official, Carlos Mortensen has become the newest sponsored professional player to be signed with Full Tilt Poker and now appears in the sites list of  ‘Full Tilt Pros’. As a Full Tilt Pro, Carlos Mortensen will now be entitled to a deal which will include 100% rakeback, $35 per hour he play on the site and bonuses linked to any TV appearances wearing the FTP logo.
The story started circulating as a rumour after the hyper-aggressive player known as “The Matador”  was seen playing Mixed games on Full Tilt with his name in red, but now it seems the poker pro has joined the site with an absence of any fan fair or official announcements.
In any case, Mortensen will be bringing an intimidating presence to the sites virtual felts, being a two time WSOP bracelet winner and 13th on the ‘All Time Money List’ with $8,894,713 from live tournament cashes.
Carlos Mortensen started his poker career in Madrid after losing $100 at a No-Limit Hold ’em game he stumbled upon. The next day, after figuring out where he went wrong, the avid chess fan returned to the club, crushed the game over the next five nights and never looked back since.
After moving to the States to advance his poker career, Mortensen soon won the $300 Limit 2001 L.A. Poker Classic for $116,722, and the next month’s 2001 Shooting Stars for $44,550, which also provided him with a free ticket to the 2001 World Series of Poker Main Event, which he also won for a $1,500,000 pay day.
The Matador’s remarkable three consecutive 1st place finishes propelled him firmly into the poker spot light and he has continued to consistently dominate poker tournament since, with 19 wins now under his belt including two WPT titles. His most recent first place finish was at the 2009 World Poker Finals, where he took home $152,857.
