World Short-Handed Championship at Titan

Some poker players specialize in short-handed games where there are just 6 players or less at the table.  If you happen to be one of these people then you will definitely want to get in on Titan Poker’s European Short-Handed Poker Championship in June.  The Short-Handed Championship will feature 6-handed tables and is one of the most unique poker tournaments in the world.

In addition to featuring 6-handed tables, the European Short-Handed Poker Championship will also be a live event held at the breathtaking Ballsbridge Inn in Dublin, Ireland.  As if getting to stay in one of the fanciest hotels in all of Europe isn’t enough, players will be competing for €150,000 in guaranteed prize money too!

In order to win your way into the European Short-Handed Poker Championship, you will need to play in the poker satellites that Titan is currently holding for the event.  There are Weekly Super Satellites that are being held every Tuesday at 19:05 GMT and the buy-in for this event is $100 + $9.  In addition to the Super Satellite there are also smaller poker satellites running where players can win their way into the Super Satellite.  To find these, all you need to do is look through the Titan lobby after downloading the software; all of the satellite starting times and dates will be displayed here.    

If you happen to win your way into one of the Super Satellites, then you will have the chance to compete for a $2,500 Short-Handed Championship Main Event prize package.  The $2,500 prize packages include the €1,000 + €100 Main Event buy-in, €300 for 3 nights of hotel accommodations at Dublin’s luxurious Ballsbridge Inn, and $640 for flight tickets and spending money.  The €150,000 Main Event takes place from June 4th – June 7th so you’ll want to hurry and get in the satellites as soon as possible!

While a member of Titan, you’ll also want to get in on their European Championship of Online Poker IV event that starts on May 25th.  The ECOOP is one of the biggest online poker tournament series in the world and will be paying out over $4,550,000 in total prize money.  This two week event kicks off with a $250,000 Guaranteed tournament on the first day and culminates with a $1,500,000 Guaranteed tourney on the final day.  This version of the ECOOP is sure to be a cash-filled event that will go down in Titan Poker history!

Aside from looking at the huge amounts of money involved, the ECOOP is also great because it features a number of buy-ins that are sure to suit bankrolls of all types.  For starters, you can enter the poker freerolls and satellites offered in the Titan lobby if you can’t afford the direct buy-ins.  But, as long as you can dole out $100 + $9, you can enter one of several tournaments offering this buy-in.  For those wanting to go for the big money, the $1.5 million ECOOP Main Event buy-in is $1,500 + $80 to enter.
