Titan Poker has crowned Yann Lelievre, 25, from France as its Online Poker 'World Champion' after he defeated some of the best online poker players across the globe.
For three months, skilled Titan Poker players competed for the chance to participate in the World Challenge Main Event. To qualify, players needed to advance through a series of Poker Leagues, competing first against their fellow countrymen and then against the world's best international players. The final 56 players advanced to the Main Event.
Yann Lelievre finished first in the World Challenge Main Event in December, claiming the title of Titan Poker World Champion and $100,000 in cash. The remaining 55 players received a share of $55,000.
Following his amazing success, Yann said, "Poker is a true passion for me. I started playing poker in 2006 and it was not long before I realized all the passion that poker can provoke. I was so delighted to win the World Challenge Main Event, especially as it was such a close call. I became Titan Poker World Champion with a three of a kind - but just before the pot I only had enough for the big blind!"
"I intend to continue playing and fulfill some more of my dreams. I'm still very young and I have a lot to learn, but I believe that I am getting closer and improving all the time," continued Yann.
The World Challenge Tournament is just one of many huge cash promotions offered by Titan Poker. The popular online poker room will stage a $2,000,000 Guaranteed tournament on the 2nd of March. Titan Poker also regularly awards its players with seats at the world's most well-known poker tournaments, such as the Aussie Millions in Australia, the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, and the upcoming Irish Open in March.
