(PRWEB) January 17, 2008
James Galvin, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, has won the Top Canadian Titan tournament staged on January 13, 2008, at Titan Poker, the largest poker room on the iPoker Network.
Galvin, a 23-year-old who has been playing at Titan Poker for over a year, bested 28 other leading poker players to claim first prize in the tournament, which concluded a six-month promotional schedule.
First prize was $500 in cash and the distinction of being recognized as the Top Canadian Poker Player at Titan Poker.
The young winner, who only plays poker as a hobby, says he likes cash games and tournaments equally. "Titan Poker is a great site with a lot of great guaranteed tournaments," Galvin said, after receiving his title.
In order to retain top position, Galvin will be challenged to defend his title as Titan Poker stages additional tournaments specifically targeting poker players in Canada.
The popular online poker room will host an unprecedented $2,000,000 Guaranteed Prize tournament on March 2, 2008, and guarantees more than $10 Million in total tournament payouts each month.
Titan Poker recently staged The Tournament Titan, a million dollar freeroll open to just twenty skilled poker players. It also hosted the European Championship of Online Poker 2007 (ECOOP) in December, which awarded more than $2,500,000 in Guaranteed Prizes in ten consecutive days of poker tournaments.
