Player "Heins77" from Germany was the winner on Wednesday of the sixth tournament staged as part of Titan Poker's ten-day European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP) tournament series.
The ECOOP series is currently attracting unprecedented player interest at Titan Poker, the largest online poker room on the iPoker Network. A total of $3,600,000 is guaranteed in prizes at the ten tournaments, but the large number of online poker players participating in the tournaments has driven up the prize pools even higher.
Player "Heins77" took home a first prize of $45,570 as he beat off 1,084 other players in the Texas Hold'em No Limit, 6-Player table tournament with a buy-in of $200+$15. A total of $217,000 was distributed to the winning players, more than the event's guaranteed prize pool of $200,000.
The previous night, the fifth ECOOP II tournament saw 505 players compete at a Texas Hold'em No Limit Freezeout tournament with a stiff $750 + $50 Buy-in. The prize pool, at $378,750, again surpassed the promised amount.
The ECOOP II tournament series continues at Titan Poker until June 1st, when it culminates with a tournament finale with $1,500,000 in guaranteed prizes.
Titan Poker players are able to buy-in directly to each of the ECOOP II events or win their seats at online daily qualifying tournaments, which start at just $2 + $0.20.
This is the second European Championship of Online Poker staged by Titan Poker. The first ECOOP series was staged in December 2007 and exceeded expectations by awarding more than $2,500,000 in prizes.
