In an effort to expand and begin sponsoring land-based tournaments, Titan Poker has chosen the Eurocity Poker Tour (ECPT) as the first of many more to come. The ECPT begins in May of 2008 – May 9th through 12th, to be exact – with its inaugural stop at the Casino Gran Madrid in Madrid, Spain.
The field of the first ECPT tournament will be limited to a field of 200 players, so it will behoove players to qualify early. Titan Poker is giving all of its online players a chance to do just that with numerous satellites. Winners will receive a prize package that includes a 1000 Euro buy-in into the ECPT, along with two round-trip airline tickets from anywhere in Europe to Madrid, and hotel and meal accommodations for three nights for two people. The entire package is worth approximately $3000.
A spokeswoman for Titan Poker spoke of the site’s hope of making these types of partnerships with land-based tournaments a regular occurrence. “At the rate of our expansion, and considering the number of players we are sending to tournaments every month, it only makes sense that Titan Poker should take it to the next level. We are already making a huge presence at these tournaments. Now that Titan Poker is the sponsor, it will just be more visible!” Qualifying satellites for the ECPT are already underway on Titan Poker. There are various sit-n-go’s operating at various times of each day with buy-ins ranging from $3 + $.30 to $27.50 + $2.50. On specific dates in March and April, there will also be super satellites with a $250 + $25 buy-in. Download Titan Poker now and begin playing in the numerous satellites.
