(PRWEB) December 1, 2008
After a sensational opening night, the European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP III) (http://www.titanpoker.com/ecoop_nov_2008.html) , the largest tournament series currently taking the online poker world by storm, shows no sign of slowing down. The turnout at Tuesday night's $100,000 Guaranteed Prize tournament far exceeded expectation, increasing the prize pool offering to $106,600. In total, 533 players were glued to their seats for the second ECOOP Event, but it was Italian Titan Poker player, Lorenzo Savallo, who stole the show with his skilful victory at the tables.
The thirty-five year old Silver VIP player from Italy took home a total of $24,518 and the prestigious ECOOP III bracelet after placing number one in the second ECOOP III event. The new ECOOP winner had been with Titan Poker for just six months before his astounding first place victory, which he claimed after registering that same morning before the tournament.
Players still have ample time to join the action now that this year's ECOOP series has been extended to fourteen days. A record prize total of $4.15 million is guaranteed at the fourteen nightly events, culminating in the $1,500,000 Guaranteed Prize Main Event on December 7th, 2008.
Daily qualifying satellite tournaments are currently underway at Titan Poker. The ECOOP III tournaments offer a wide variety of poker games, including Texas No Limit Hold'em, Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo Poker, with buy-ins to suit every budget.
Titan Poker's ECOOP is well and truly shaping up to be an exciting third season. Titan Poker's first ECOOP, which was staged last December, saw players competing over ten days for their share of $2,500,000 in cash prizes. ECOOP II followed in May this year, with a grand total of $3,600,000 in prizes guaranteed over ten nights of tournament play.
