RAYMER SIGNS NEW DEAL

Grey Raymer has signed a new deal with Full Tilt. Railbirds and pros alike knew that Raymer, who is a spokesman for the Poker Players Alliance and the Champion of the WSOP Main Event in 2004, probably wouldn’t be left in the cold for long. Not surprisingly, Raymer appears to have inked a new (though perhaps temporary) sponsorship deal with PokerStars’ primary rival: Full Tilt Poker.

BluffMagazine.com reported that Raymer is to be sponsored by Full Tilt for the upcoming National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which will be sponsored by NBC. His opponent is none other than Mike “the Mouth” Matusow, also sponsored by Full Tilt. Matusow famously (and typically) verbally assaulted Greg Raymer during Raymer’s WSOP run in 2004. According to recent interviews, Matusow and Raymer have been on very friendly terms for quite some time despite that incident.
