Mark Vos Wins WSOP $2,000 No-Limit Holdem Tournament

22-year old FullTiltPoker.Com player Mark Vos, grabbed his first-ever World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and $803,274 prize in the $2,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament, making him one of the youngest WSOP bracelet winners in history.

Australian Vos, who plays as PokerBok, is now one of the world's top online poker player, after eliminating WSOP second-place finisher Nam Le. Talking to media, Vos said he considers himself very lucky and couldn't be happier at this point.

Warmly commending Mark Vos is fellow Full Tilt Poker professional Howard Lederer, who said, "(Vos) is a young player with superstar potential." Ledere added, "(Vos') online success is well documented, but what he has already accomplished in just a few live major poker tournaments is truly remarkable."

Vos started as an amateur player on FullTiltPoker before coming out pro. Vos often played in the most expensive ring games and tournaments, sharpening his skills against established professionals, among them Phil Ivey, John Juanda, and Mike Matusow, to name a few.

Three days before Vos won, another Full Tilt Poker professional player, Rafe Furst, earned his first WSOP bracelet for winning the $1, 500 Pot-Limit Hold'em tournament. Vos' victory increased Full Tilt Poker's professional players' WSOP bracelets to a remarkable record of 51, making Full Tilt Poker one of the fastest growing online poker sites today.

Other Full Tilt Poker professional who made it WSOP is Juan Carlos Mortensen, who earned $73, 344 for his ninth-place finish as he reached his second final table of the 2006 WSOP. Also from Full Tilt Poker is Toto Leonidas, who earned $59, 374 for finishing tenth.
