Titan Poker Players In the Money at APT Macau

MACAU, CHINA, AUGUST 2008

Titan Poker players qualified online to participate in the biggest tournament ever held in Asia - the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Macau, with $1,500,000 in guaranteed prizes. The tournament took place at the StarWorld Hotel and Casino in Macau, the former Portuguese colony, a city of casinos and sites that has already surpassed Las Vegas as the gambling capital of the world.

Titan Poker sent to Macau a very talented delegation of 17 players from all over the globe. Three players finished "in the money" but all came away with the experience of a lifetime.

Pictured below are Weichun Chen and Claudio Basaglia, our players from Italy, enjoying the scene at the Titan Poker Welcome Party.

The Godfather of Poker, Doyle Brunson, cuts the ribbon and the Asian Poker Tour (APT) tournament is under way.

But before the poker action begins, Doyle Brunson takes a bow with the many beautiful women who came to show support for the players.

Titan Poker was one of the sponsors of the tournament, and with 17 players out of a total of 257 competing, it had the largest delegation of all.

Bluffing couldn't help Jacob Hong Hai Chen from Australia, and he was eliminated early on during Day 1A action.

An early favorite was Joshua Tan, our player from Malaysia, (pictured below) who demonstrated great skills during his tournament play.

Artem Khudaverdiev, from Germany, (below) was supported in Macau by his father and the entire team, but he was eliminated on Day 1B.

Thomas Chow, a Dutch player born in Hong Kong, (seen below) advanced into Day 2, only to finish the tournament in 48th place, just short of the money.

Masaki Ichikawa from Japan held on and made it into the top 40, paid players. He finished in 37th place and won $45,700 HKD. Congratulations!

The next Titan Poker player to be eliminated was the very talented Alexander Jung from Germany (seen below with Titan Poker staff). He finished in 25th place and won $62,900 HKD.

Julio Diaz, one of the top tournament players in Spain, took a commanding lead in the tournament during Day 2.

Julio advanced to the televised Final Table on Day 3, and after a strong performance, finished in 5th Place and won $514,600 HKD (46,000 Euros)! Julio said he had a great time in Macau and hopes to play again next year.
