|Titan Poker has announced that it plans to stage the European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP) 2007 later this year with a guaranteed pot of $2.5 million.|
The Playtech-powered site operates on the iPoker Network and said that ECOOP is set to be the biggest online event this winter. The event will start at the end of November and run for ten consecutive days.
Titan Poker said that it would stage one significant cash giveaway each day during the ten-day tournament series, culminating in a one million dollar Main Event on December 9.
In addition to cash prizes, winners of each event will also be awarded a special ECOOP bracelet, similar to those awarded at the World Series of Poker and, as an extra bonus, the top 50 players at the entire event are to be entered into a $50,000 free-roll tournament to be staged the day after the Main Event.
Titan Poker stated that players could buy in to the ECOOP directly or qualify through ongoing sit and go tournaments and multi-table satellites.
Titan Poker currently guarantees over six million dollars in monthly tournament prizes and is currently staging the Titan Poker World Challenge where just 50 players will compete for the top prize of a Porsche Cayman S sports car or a share of a $50,000 prize pool.
