Australian qualifies for Titan tournament

17 November 2006

AUSTRALIA – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Mark Hoath, a theater director from Australia, has qualified for Titan Poker's exclusive Million Dollar tournament -- The Tournament Titan -- after he previously played at another of Titan Poker's million dollar final tables.

The Tournament Titan is the richest Sit & Go tournament ever played online, with a massive $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. Mark (nickname "Catfang") qualified last week by finishing at the final table three times in a row at Titan Poker's regularly scheduled participating tournaments. Mark is the seventh player to qualify for this tournament, which will be staged when 20 players succeed in achieving this feat, guaranteeing themselves a share of $1,000,000 in prizes.

Mark made the final table once at Titan Poker's $7,500 GP Freezeout and twice at the popular poker room's $5,000 Guaranteed Tournaments.

With a million dollars on the line, The Tournament Titan competition is drawing some of the best tournament players online.

"I found it very difficult to qualify for this tournament," Hoath said afterwards. "On several occasions I had two tournaments and then couldn't get the third one. But I was definitely keen to get into this competition. Not only for the fantastic cash prizes, but also to show the world that Aussies are top Poker players."

This summer, Mark won a seat at Titan Poker's exclusive land-based $500,000 Freeroll, which offered a $100 Million Jackpot Prize for any player that hit a Royal Flush of Spades. Results of this tournament are set to be televised in 2007.

The list of participating tournaments and additional details about The Tournament Titan have been posted on the Titan Poker website.

The Tournament Titan is just the latest of a long string of innovative promotions run by Titan Poker. Titan Poker's jackpot sit 'n' go tournaments are extremely popular and attract veteran and novice poker players alike. If a player succeeds in winning the appropriate number of consecutive tournaments, he is entitled to receive a huge jackpot prize in addition to the regular tournament payout. Titan Poker has already paid out more than $1.5 million in jackpot prizes to its various winners. In addition, Titan Poker regularly sends qualifying players to land-based tournaments, including the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour.
