Canadian player Sorel Mizzi, one of the most successful online poker players in the world, captured first place at The Tournament Titan, the $1,000,000 Guaranteed Prize Sit 'n' Go Tournament staged this week by Titan Poker, the largest online poker room on the iPoker Network.
Mizzi defeated an exclusive field of nineteen other players from across the globe to take home a first prize package valued at $200,000, including cash and an entry to the upcoming 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event.
The Tournament Titan, with its Million Dollar guaranteed prize pool, was the richest sit 'n' go tournament ever staged online. In order to qualify, players had to make the final table at a select group of cash tournaments or win a Player Points race staged by the popular online poker room. The Tournament Titan promotion had attracted eager poker players for over a year at Titan Poker until the list of 20 skilled poker players was finalized.
Mizzi, who has achieved great success in high stakes poker action online with his Imper1um nickname, also had three cash finishes in the 2007 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas and has won more than half a million dollars in land-based poker tournaments.
When he qualified for the Tournament Titan, Mizzi said, "I've been playing professionally for over a year and a half. Poker has allowed me to travel extensively and do so many incredible things. I look forward to this tournament as another opportunity to continue to show the poker community what I'm capable of."
The Tournament Titan is just the latest of a long string of innovative promotions run by Titan Poker. Titan Poker this month staged the European Championship of Online Poker 2007, a highly successful ten-day tournament series that awarded more than $2.5 Million in prizes. Titan Poker regularly awards its players with seats at the world's most well-known poker tournaments, such as the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, various European Poker Tour events and the upcoming Aussie Millions and Irish Open Tournaments.
