The Euro City Poker Tour, sponsored by Titan Poker, has been hailed as the most prestigious new tournament series on the 2009 European poker circuit. The inaugural ECPokerTour event, the ECPT Madrid, opened at the lavish Casino Gran in Madrid in May 2008 and closed to critical acclaim. Players were treated to a unique taste of Spanish food and culture while playing for the coveted 40,000 Euro Grand Prize and first ever ECPokerTour title, claimed by young Canadian player Greg Metzak in a nail-biting finish to the landmark event.
The stage is now set for the second ECPokerTour tournament, the ECPokerTour Salzburg, which will be staged at the new Alpine Palace Card Casino from April 3rd to 5th, 2009. Exquisite five-star casino settings and larger prize offerings are just the beginning. Players can expect a dazzling display of international talent from around the world as the world-class competition attracts the best in the game and heats up the felt in the popular winter ski destination of Salbaach-Hinterglemm.
Titan Poker is awarding qualified players with sensational $4,000 prize packages which include four nights’ accommodation at the adjoining five-star Alpine Palace Resort Hotel, meals and airport transfers, and generous flight and spending allowances. An exclusive VIP welcome party and special entertainment will greet players on the first evening of arrival. The resort also boasts an extensive health and spa complex, complete with 400 square meters of indoor and outdoor spas, pools and treatment rooms to help players unwind and recharge after a hard day at the tables.
Titan Poker is offering players three chances a week to win luxury ECPokerTour Salzburg prize packages with its ECPokerTour Salzburg Super Satellites, staged every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday until March 25th 2009. Players can qualify with direct buy-ins starting at $40+$4, or win super seats at any of Titan Poker qualifying Sit ‘N’ Go and satellite tournaments for as little as $0.55 + $0.05.
