Titan Poker is well known for sending their players to big money venues like the Eurocity Poker Tour Madrid Open, the Aussie Millions, World Poker Showdown, ECOOP and European Poker Tour events. So, it comes as no surprise when in April, they sent a delegation of their top players to compete in the 2008 Salzburg PokerNews Cup.
The event was held from April 23rd to 27th in the historical city of Salzburg, Austria at the newly renovated Concord Card Casino, where Titan Poker’s delegation was treated like royalty.
Titan Poker had awarded the nine players their all inclusive prize packages which included accommodations, flights and buy-ins to the tournament's Main Event and one side event.
While in Salzburg, the players experienced the beauty of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birthplace as they toured the city's numerous historical sites, where they were treated to an exclusive lunch and private beer tour.
For poker player Nelson Rodrigues, from Madeira, Portugal, it was a very special time as he celebrated his 27th birthday at the tournament welcome party. Rodrigues has only been playing poker for three years and this was the biggest live tournament he had ever attended. Although he did not win the Salzburg event, it will no doubt be one of his best birthday’s ever.
Fellow player Chris Royston, from the U.K, was just as exited to be in Salzburg as Rodrigues was. Although it wasn’t his birthday, Royston is a rookie who has only played poker for six months, so attending the huge live event was like a dream come true for him. This only proves that no matter what your experience or skill level, anyone can win a seat in a major event on Titan Poker!
The Titan Poker star of the event was Frederic Arhanchet, from France who finished an impressive 19th place to win of 930 Euros.
Player’s representing Titan Poker at the Salzburg Cup hailed from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, and the United Kingdom. You can read all about their experiences on their blogs at Titan Poker.
