Titan Poker's European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP II) has seen a fabulous turn out since its launch last Friday May 23. Following a very successful ECOOP 2007 where $2.5 Million in prizes were given away throughout the duration of the ten day tournament, the ECOOP II will feature an even bigger prize pool – a guaranteed $3.6 Million!
Similar to last year's tournament, the ECOOP II schedule sees 10 days of back-to-back poker culminating in the $1.5 Million Guaranteed Main Event on Sunday June 1. Interested players can buy-in to the Main Event for $1,000 + $60 or qualify through daily satellites running daily as we speak.
The sixth day of the tournament has already seen some fantastic poker – here are some statistics:
Event 1 – 1291 runners, $250,000 guaranteed prize pool, $258,200 actual prize pool, 150 places paid
Event 2 – 576 runners, $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, $108,200 actual prize pool, 80 places paid
Event 3 – 1721 runners, $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, $516,300 actual prize pool, 200 places paid
Event 4 - 830 runners, $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, $165,000 actual prize pool, 100 places paid
Event 5 - 505 runners, $300,000 guaranteed prize pool, $378,750 actual prize pool, 80 places paid
Expect five more exciting events at the ECOOP II. Aside from taking home the title and a share in the prize pool, all event winners will also receive a specially engraved bracelet. Better yet, players who finish in the top 100 of the Main Event leaderboard automatically receive a seat to a massive $50,000 freeroll which will takes place 72 hours after the Main Event concludes!
