(PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Playing on behalf of popular online poker room Titan Poker, Spanish poker champion Julio Diaz finished in fifth place at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) tournament, which took place this week in Macau.
Diaz went home with a cash prize of $514,600 Hong Kong Dollars after he outlasted professional poker players such as Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Kenny Tran and Liz Lieu to reach the final table.
Diaz, who is well known throughout Spain and is a regular and frequent winner of poker tournaments on the Spanish circuit, was happy with his fifth place finish, and hopes to return to Macau for next year's tournament as well.
Diaz's Titan Poker teammates, Alexander Jung from Germany and Masaki Ichikawa from Japan, also finished in the money and won their share of the $1,500,000 in guaranteed prizes at what was without a doubt the most lucrative poker tournament ever to be staged in Asia.
