  • “kuinkavain” Wins Titan Poker $250k GTD

    Monday, December 22nd, 2008 by t2admin

The biggest, regularly scheduled online poker tournaments always occur over the weekend, and it was no different at Titan Poker this Sunday as online poker player “kuinkavain” routed the competition at the weekly $250,000 Guarantee.

A field of 787 posted the $200+$15 buy-in to converge on the tables at Titan Poker last Sunday, taking a shot at the largest guaranteed prize of the week, $250k. The top 100 finishers would take home a piece of the excessive prize pool, but none more lucrative than the top prize of $55,000.

Basic mathematics tells us that TitanPoker.com saw a hefty overlay at the weekend’s event. The turnout brought in $157,400 towards the guaranteed prize pool, forcing Titan Poker to fork over the remaining $92,600 – nearly $100k of the overall purse. That’s bad news for the online poker room, but excellent for the participants in the way of expected value.

After hours of fierce competition, it eventually came down to the final table, dwindling further as, one by one, players were eliminated from the tournament. The 3rd place elimination of “sendmemore” brought about the final battle; heads-up play between Netherlands native “JC15” and “kuinkavain”.

Both players displayed exceptional skills and successful chip hoarding throughout Titan Poker’s grueling tournament, but in the end, there could only be one true victor. JC15 yielded to the dealings of Lady Luck as kuinkavain went on to claim the 1st place prize of $55,000. JC15 earned $30,000 for an impressive 2nd place finish.
