Three More Winners at Titan’s ECoOP III

Monday, 1 December 2008

Europeans are turning out in record numbers for Titan Poker’s third run of the European Championship of Online Poker. Over the weekend, three more winners were crowned and the best part of $700,000 given away across the tournaments.

Day 4 of the ECoOP III saw 420 players put up $215 in a Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tournament that generated a prize pool of $100,000. Online pro doesalrite did a lot better than that, taking down the tournament for $25,000.

On Day 5 the tournament organisers guaranteed a $350k prize pool but 532 players turned out for the high-stakes No Limit Hold'em tournament, creating a $450,000 prize pool. The $97k first-place prize was won by Matt ‘ch0ppy’ Kay, a Canadian pro who won the PokerStars Sunday Million in January last year for $201,000.

Day 6 saw a European speciality, the game of choice for Patrik Antonius and David Benyamine – Pot-Limit Omaha, of course. The $100,000 guarantee was easily broken with 156 players creating a $178,000 prize pool. GUKPT winner Jeff "JaffaCake69" Kimber beat PieForYou in heads-up play to take down a cash prize of $46,000.
