Titan Poker sending players to San Remo

Cash in Briefcase Cash on Table

Two players won their seats to the European Poker Tour San Remo event at Titan Poker. The poker site is sending Heribert Prott and Stephane Lemau to compete in the event.

Prott, from Austria, and Lemau, from France, were both awarded $10,000 prize packages for the EPT event taking place April 1-5 in San Remo, Italy.

The prize package covers the €5,000 buy-in for the event, plus money for travel and accommodation.

The San Remo event is new to the European Poker Tour this season. If the other events for Season 4 are any indicator, though, it should bring quite a bit of money to the winner.


Starting with the Barcelona Open back in August, Sander Lylloff pocketed €1,170,700, and since then the payouts have ranged from €532,620 for first place in the Dublin event to the $2 million Bertrand Grospellier picked up in the Caribbean Adventure.

"It's amazing that I'll be taking part in a live tournament for the first time," said Prott after winning his seat to the San Remo event, where millions of dollars could be potentially on the line. "Many thanks to Titan Poker for this opportunity!"

Lamau is just as excited about heading to Italy for the event.

"Thank you Titan Poker for making my dreams come true by sending me to the EPT San Remo - and for just $40, as I earned my place in a satellite!" Lamau said. "Three months ago I also finished 34th place in Titan Poker's $1 million Guaranteed Prize Tournament, winning $5,000!"

Titan Poker hands out plenty of seats and other prizes to its players. Along with the EPT San Remo seats, the site has dished out Aussie Million, World Series of Poker, World Poker Showdown, Irish Open and other EPT event seats.

The poker site also recently signed on as the main sponsor of the Eurocity Poker Tour, which is hosting its inaugural event, the Madrid Open, in May.

The European Championship of Online Poker II will also take place on Titan Poker this May with $3.5 million in guaranteed cash spread through 10 days of events.
