Titan Poker player wins Pokerface 2007

Titan Poker player Maik Andre Dahling is the Pokerface 2007 champion. The young German will now live like a poker pro for a year and test his skills in some of the biggest tournaments in the world.

The Pokerface 2007 main event was played at the classic Binion's casino in Las Vegas, with 30 players competing for a $300,000 prize pool.

Dahling, who earned his seat through a satellite at Titan Poker, took home first place after making a few brave calls. The deciding moment of the tournament came when he knocked out Finnbjorn Vang from the Faroe Islands in third place.

The two were chip leaders, and ended up all-in pre-flop with Vang holding A-K against Dahling's A-8. Vang was way ahead, but an eight on the flop and one on the turn changed things dramatically.

After that huge pot, Dahling had no problems defeating Denmark's Nicholas Leszkowicz heads-up to take home the $200,000 first prize.

The first prize package includes tournament buy-ins around the world worth $100,000, travel expenses amounting to $30,000 and a salary of about $70,000.

Nicholas Leszkowicz, Finnbjorn Vang and the other six final table contestants who didn't make it all the way received $12,500 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event packages for their efforts.
