Sorel Mizzi tops Tournament Titan

Sorel Mizzi
Mizzi reigns supreme as Tournament Titan.

It took more than a year to find the 20 players for the Tournament Titan, but in the end it was a familiar name who reigned supreme. Sorel Mizzi, aka "Imper1um," took home the top prize.

The first 18 players had to make three consecutive final-table finishes in participating tournaments to qualify for the Tournament Titan. The final two qualifiers participated in a points race for spots in the tournament.

Mizzi qualified for Titan Poker's Tournament Titan in December 2006 after he made the final table of the $7,500 GP twice and final-tabled once in a $7,000 GP tournament. He's had to wait a year since qualifying to actually play for a piece of the $1 million prize pool.

During that time, he came in fourth during the €1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event and first in the €200 No-Limit Hold'em event of the Vienna Spring Poker Festival in March.

He followed that up in April with a third-place finish in the Irish Open for €210,000, and a 15th-place finish in the World Poker Tour Championship for $154,705. At the 2007 World Series of Poker, he also cashed in three events, including the Main Event.

With his Tournament Titan win, he'll have his buy-in paid for the 2008 WSOP Main Event, as well as $188,000 in cash to add to his bankroll.

Second- and third-place finishers in the Tournament Titan also received 2008 Main Event prize packages with their cash prizes.
