Titan Poker marks its 6th anniversary throughout the month of September and poker players of all types will be attracted by the wide range of promotions on hand.
Titan w.w88 first-ever Heads-Up Championship, a special anniversary freeroll, mystery surprises, 24-hour races with exciting prizes, and a chance to play poker with Team Titan’s Sam Trickett and Marvin Rettenmaier are all part of the September activities.
Players who enjoy freerolls, and who doesn’t enjoy freerolls, will be eager to guarantee their seat at Titan Poker’s $6,000 Anniversary Freeroll. The threshold for qualification is quite low and practically any player can join. To qualify, a player must earn more than 60 Titan Poker Points during the month, and most players can achieve this in just one session at the tables. The freeroll will take place on Thursday, October 6th, and places are limited, so the earlier a player guarantees his seat, the better.
Only one player will walk away with the title of Titan Poker’s first Heads-Up Champion, but many players will be rewarded along the way. More than $25,000 in prizes is up for grabs. 32 players will participate in the finals, and to secure their seats, players need to win one of the 32 races scheduled during the month. The championship will take place in an elimination bracket format, with $3,000 reserved for the overall winner.
Players will not know in advance what additional promotions, bonuses and benefits await them as part of Mystery Week. A new mystery giveaway will be revealed to players each week but rumor has it that the mysteries will be revealed on Titan Poker’s Facebook page one day earlier than anywhere else.
Team Titan’s two professional poker players will join cash tables and tournaments as part of Sam & Marvin’s Playground. A $200 bounty has been offered to any player skillful enough to eliminate one of them from the $200,000 Guaranteed. The full schedule of their September appearances in the software has been posted online.
If all of these anniversary promotions sound exciting, players would be wise to opt-in on the Titan Poker website as soon as possible and join the celebrations.

312 players paid the €7,500 buy-in to participate in the prestigious WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event. Marvin Rettenmaier and Yann Brosolo from Team Titan didn’t finish in the money even though Rettenmaier started the tournament very well finishing Day 1B among the chipleaders. He was also leading the field for a good part of Day 2.
Marvin declared after his elimination: “I reached the point of the tournament where you need to win some flips to be able to play for the win. Unfortunately, I lost these crucial flips so I am logically (but unfortunately) out. But next time will be mine 😉 ”
Other poker stars were in Paris to try to take down the title of WPT champion, among them Jason Mercier, Juha Helppi, Martin Jacobson, Freddy Deeb, Davidi Kitaï, Sorel Mizzi, Arnaud Mattern, Antoine Saout and Anton Makiievski (November Nine).
Christophe Benzimra, who won the EPT Warsow in 2009 showed a good result after 3 days of a high level fight. Unfortunately the French pro from Team Titan had to leave the tournament when his pocket Queens was beaten by Russian Dimitry Stelmak’s pocket Kings. Stelmak eventually finished 8th in the tournament and won €66,665,
