Titan Poker, the largest poker room on the iPoker Network, sent a delegation of nine players to compete in the Salzburg Poker Cup 2008 in Salzburg, Austria. The internationally renowned online poker site was represented at the tournament, which took place in April, by players from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
The players received all-inclusive prize packages, including accommodations, flights, buy-in to the tournament's Main Event and a side event.
Nelson Rodrigues, from Madeira, Portugal, was excited to have the chance to celebrate his 27th birthday with fellow Titan Poker players at the tournament welcome party. He has been playing poker for three years and this was his biggest live tournament to date.
Fellow player Frederic Arhanchet, from France, was the Titan Poker star of Salzburg, finishing in 19th place with a win of 930 Euros. Chris Royston, from the U.K, who is a rookie at poker with only six months experience, said that it was "my first time in a casino this week!"
All players were able to experience the joys of Salzburg as they explored the city's numerous historical sites. The city is not only famous as the birth place of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but also for its scenic beauty. Titan Poker's players were also treated to a private beer tour and an exclusive lunch.
A blog listing the experiences of Titan Poker's players was posted on its website.
