Titan Poker Team Member Heads to the Irish Open

Share this
Congratulations to Jose Manuel Gomez Rebenaque, who is one of seven Titan Poker players that received a six month sponsorship with Titan Poker. As a member of the Titan Poker Team, Jose received $25,000 to cover his buy-ins for land-based tournament play, which he plans to use wisely. Before becoming a member of Team Titan, Jose made a good showing at the World Series of Poker Main Event where he finished 83rd for a win of $57,991.

After recently competing in several live events in which he managed to hold his own, Jose took a break and returned to the online tables where he won an impressive $65,000 in a Titan Poker guaranteed prize tournament.  Then on January 10th, while planning to join in the action of the online Titan Poker Million Guaranteed tournament, Jose miscalculated the tournament start time and ended up registering for the Titan Poker Irish Open Super Satellite instead. This super satellite awarded only 135 places among the playing field, but Jose’s timing mistake turned into a lucky break when he became one of the four finishers to win a package to the Irish Open.

Because of his lucky bad timing, Jose will now travel with his family to beautiful Dublin, Ireland for the Easter holiday, to see if the luck of the Irish will be with him so he can finish in the money at the prestigious land-based event. Although Jose has played well thus far, he has not yet achieved any cashes as a member of the Titan Poker Team and is anxious to prove himself as a winning Titan Team member.

Jose’s first tournament - played as a Titan Poker team member - was the EC Poker Tour Malta, at the Casino di Venecia that took place in November of 2009. Although Jose made it through the first full day, he was out of the game after only 40 minutes of play on the second day of the event. He then competed in the Spanish Poker Tour’s final event at the Great Canary Island, from November 25th to November 28th at the Gran Casino Costa Meloneras. In this event, Jose managed to last the full first day and almost to the end of the second day where he was taken out of the game within the last five minutes of the day’s play. He also came up short when he played in a side event the third day and had a 17th place finish, however, the event paid out to only the top nine spots.

Then in December of 2009’ Jose played in Madrid as a Team Titan representative in the Full Tilt Series Final, where he was seated at the televised table along with Gus Hansen and managed to get in about six hours of play prior to his elimination. Not giving up, Jose played in the final of the “Championship of Spain in December at the Casino de Alicante, where he not only made it to the second day, but managed to finish 28th in the event.

Away from the felt, Jose is an engineer and a family man. Besides playing poker, he enjoys playing golf and watching soccer and other sports on television. He began playing poker at age 14 and has been playing Texas Hold ‘em online for the past 7 years. If you want to watch Jose in action, you can find him playing online exclusively at Titan Poker and to tune-in on his latest tournament tales, check out his Titan Team blog.
