This was published 30-07-2010

James “Flushy” Dempsey, the United Kingdom’s 27 year-old poker prodigy, has just signed a Full Tilt Poker sponsorship deal to become the latest ‘Red Pros’ troupe member.

The young and talented Poker Tournaments player from Brighton in East Sussex has been winning quite a packet from playing poker for a living over the last couple of years. We had a look at ‘Pocket Fives’ and saw that he has already won 373 866 dollars at Full Tilt Poker and 630 286 dollars at Poker Stars.

Dempsey’s largest internet score to date was at the Poker Stars ‘09 SCOOP three hundred and twenty dollar Texas No-Limit Hold’em Poker event, where he managed to finish 2nd, and made 211 000 dollars.

It is his last stint of success at the 2010 WSOP, however, which led to the Full Tilt Poker sponsorship deal.  Dempsey has managed to win more than 735 000 dollars from live poker tournaments since the year 2005. 511 867 alone came from his outstanding poker performance at the 2010 World Series of Poker, which included a World Series of Poker bracelet cash in at the  1 500 dollar Omaha and second place finish at the 10 000 dollar Omaha Hi/Lo poker event.

Dempsey now joins other British World Series of Poker winners Richard Ashby and Praz Bansi at Full Tilt Poker, and will be getting a large number of perks, which include a hundred per cent rake back and being paid thirty five dollars and hour just to play poker at the online poker hall.

When asked for a comment on how he feels about joining the Full Tilt Poker’s Red Pros team, Dempsey had the following to say:

“I couldn’t be more excited. This is a such a dream of mine. I’ve worked very hard for this over the years and to have won a bracelet and now this – it’s just fantastic.”
