Dutch flag824 players took their seats to participate in the $150,000 Sunday Special and when the dust cleared, two Titan Poker players from the Netherlands were the only ones left at the final table.

Facing off against each other were "13MASTER13" from Groningen and "nelisschuifwijk" from Vught. "nelisschuifwijk" had a 2-1 advantage in chips when heads-up play began and kept that comfortable lead for most of the 48 hands the two players played.

On the final hand of the tournament, "nelisschuifwijk" was dealt pocket jacks, and that combination easily beat the Q 8 held by his opponent which only connected with another eight on the flop.

For his first place in the tournament, "nelisschuifwijk" won $28,807.04, while "13MASTER13" was compensated with $20,929.60 for his second place finish.

Saturday Success for Titan Players

Posted by Steven, April 21, 2013

$30,000 GuaranteedSaturday night poker tournament action is highlighted by the $30,000 GP Freezeout, and last night's tournament attracted 310 starters. The action lasted nearly nine hours, and when only three players were left at the final table, they were all Titan Poker players.

"LikMeSpeer" from the Netherlands was in the lead at that point, with as many chips as "nU3DOC" from Russia and "DosPerros" from Canada combined. The Canadian player kept dropping back, and was finally eliminated when pocket threes fell to the Russian's KQ after a second queen showed up on the flop.

The third place finish awarded "DosPerros" with a prize of $3,410.

Heads-up play began with "LikMeSpeer" still holding a comfortable lead. But that lead would be lost some 20 hands later when the Russian raised pre-flop with 5c Kd, and the Dutchman called with Ac Jh. The flop was 6d 4d Jc, pairing up the jack, but the Russian made a small bet which was called. The turn was the 5 of diamonds, giving "nU3DOC" a pair and a flush draw. He checked and "LikMeSpeer" made a bet, only to be re-raised all-in, which he called. The river was the ace of diamonds, completing the flush. The Russian player took a commanding lead.

Three hands later, "nU3DOC" raised with AJ offsuit, and "LikMeSpeer" re-raised all-in with pocket fours. The Russian called. A jack appeared on the flop, and yet another one of the turn, securing the tournament win for the Russian.

For his second place finish, "LikMeSpeer" won $4,495. For his tournament win, "nU3DOC" won a prize of $5,967.

German Wins $30,000 Gtd 2 Weeks in a Row

Posted by Bradley, February 17, 2013

$30,000 GuaranteedGerman player “DrSho” staged an incredible repeat performance in Saturday night's popular $30,000 GP Freezeout, which kicks off each week at 19:30 GMT. Just one week ago, “DrSho” outlasted a field of 326 players to win a prize of $6,275. Last night he went up against a field of 360 starters. The tournament lasted just over 11 hours and when the final table stage was reached, three Titan Poker players were still in their seats.

German player “grossvisir” was eliminated in 5th place when his A 6 went up against the A Q held by fellow Titan “DosPerros” from Canada. The board provided a pair of kings and the queen held by the Canadian was the better kicker. For his fifth place finish, “grossvisir” won $2,066.40.

“DosPerros” lasted some fifteen hands after that, and was short-stacked going up against chipleader “DrSho” with a pretty desperate 6 J. The German held a pair of nines and that was the combination that won the hand. Third place in the tournament awarded “DosPerros” with $3,960.

Heads-up play started with “DrSho” holding a 3-1 advantage in chips over his final opponent, “Ch1pstar”. The one-on-one play would last for 100 hands, with “Ch1pstar” coming from behind and the lead changing from one player to the other.

On the final hand of the tournament, the K J held by “DrSho” proved to be good against A 4, when the German was able to score two pairs. For his first place finish, “DrSho” won $6,930, while Ch1pstar” received $5,220 for finishing 2nd. It was an amazing repeat win in the prestigious Saturday night freezeout for the German player.

Polish player “IrasTaManVIP” had been short-stacked for some time and finally pushed his last chips into the pot with Q T.

“THEROUNDER888” from Portugal was third in chips when he saw that his J K found a second king on the flop.
