Last Sunday (March 2) at 20:00 GMT, the much anticipated $2 Million Guaranteed Tournament finally began. Hosted by the iPoker network, a field of 1,380 players battled it out for over 14 hours, all vying for a piece of the massive prizepool, which ended up totalling an impressive $2,070,000. Although direct entry was set at $1500+80, many players managed to qualify through the various sit-n-gos and multi-table satellites available - some for as little as $3+0.30. After the hands had been played, 'lekkimmd' outlasted all other entrants and collected the first prize of $434,000.
iPoker were extremely happy with the turnout and are confident their next major tournament will be an even bigger success. "The $2 Million tournament generated amazing interest among our players, who competed for months for a chance to make it to the money. Now our players have set their sights on the even higher prize pool available at the upcoming ECOOP II tournaments," explains Titan Poker Manager, Robin Steele. "Scheduled for May, ECOOP II features a total of 10 tournaments with $3.5 Million in guaranteed cash prizes. Titan Poker continues to up the ante!"
