The ECOOP’s Main Event, with a $1,000,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool was won by Luke Cahill of Manchester this weekend. Held at Titan Poker, the largest online poker room on the iPoker network, Cahill defeated a field of 992 in the $1000+$60 No Limit Hold’em tournament. The event was the climax of a ten day ECOOP series which has awarded over $2.5m in prize money.
'I was awake all night,' Cahill said, shortly after he won the last hand after the twelve-hour-long war of attrition. 'I wasn't as tired as I should have been towards the end.'
Amazingly, Cahill had never previously played a tournament at Titan Poker, having only played cash games on the site. “Recently I decided to try playing tournaments,' Cahill said. 'I only heard about the ECOOP Main Event the day before!'. Cahill now promises to devote more time to Titan Poker tournaments and possibly to win a satellite seat to represent the poker room at a major mainland poker event.
'I've played only one live tournament before, and busted out on the first day,' Cahill said. He says his online success can be attributed to 'knowing which cards to start with, waiting for the good hands, and playing those.'
