Titan Poker ’s European Championship of Online Poker series is done, and the turnout for this first-ever event was extraordinary! Nearly all of the events exceeded the guaranteed prize pools, and the few that missed the guarantees created very small overlays for the players.
When all was said and done, Titan poker player ‘Hikipinko’ had a great series, claiming the title in Events #8 & #9, earning bracelets in No Limit Hold Em and Pot Limit Omaha and picking up $83,590 just in those two tournaments!
Event #6 was a $750 + 50 No Limit Hold Em 6-handed tourney with 937 players signed up, building a $187,400 prize pool. Guggovic took down the event and the top prize of $41,228.
Event #7 was a $200 + 15 Limit Hold Em event, which barely missed the guarantee of $100,000. Intepawrora took down the $25,000 first prize.
Event #8 was the first of Hikipinko’s victories, this one in a $109 No Limit Hold ‘Em with Rebuys event.
Event #9 was also a good day for Hikipinko, marking another win in the $100,000 guaranteed Pot Limit Omaha event with a $268 buy-in.
Event #10 was the $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event, which missed the guarantee by $8,000 when 992 players anted up $1060 each for the event. Wllkllu took down the event and the $220,000 first place prize money.
