Emmitt Smith as a Full Tilt Pro

Smith will be representing Full Tilt in the poker tournaments that he will join this year. He joined the National Heads up Poker Championship as a Full Tilt pro. He won against David Williams but lost against Andrew Robl. He professed his interest for the game despite leaving early at the WSOP Main Event last year, saying that he’s “learning more about the game”. He even summed the game up nicely by saying that “You’ve got to be able to get the cards. You’ve got to be able to understand when to bet. And then you just go from there.” Indeed, that’s a pretty nice summation of all the action that goes on at the felt. It’s going to be interesting to see him join live tournaments this 2011.
