Titan sending four to South African Poker Open


Three Canadians and a Dutch player are heading to South Africa courtesy of Titan Poker after winning seats in the South African Poker Open on the poker site.

All four players won their way into the South African Poker Open through a series of Super Satellites at Titan Poker. They were each awarded an $8,000 prize package, which includes the buy-in for the tournament plus money for travel and accommodation.

The tournament will be taking place at the MonteCasino in Gauteng Feb. 5-11. According to Titan Poker, the South Africa event is rapidly growing in international reputation as a premier poker destination.


Along with their tournament entry, the Titan players will also be treated to cocktail parties and galas and have a chance to explore some of South Africa while they're there.

"I've been playing online for around four to five years, but this will be the first big buy-in tournament that I have ever participated in, so I am very excited," said Mike Byrd, a 29-year-old Canadian who will be going to the tournament courtesy of Titan Poker.

"I really enjoy playing at Titan Poker because you get fantastic support, the interface is quicker and the competition tends to be more sophisticated."

Titan Poker regularly rewards its players with seats in tournaments all around the world. The poker site has sent players to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, the Aussie Millions and various European Poker Tour events.

The site will also be sending players to the Irish Open and the World Poker Showdown in the Dominican Republic later this year.
