New Film From Paris with Love Features Titan Online Poker Room

Posted by Gambling News | Poker News | Thursday 18 February 2010 1:25 pm

Luc Besson’s production company includes Titan Poker in its latest movie From Paris with Love.

From Paris with Love is an action packed film from director Pierre Morel (District 13 and Taken) starring John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The film was co-written and produced by the critically acclaimed French Director Luc Besson. It was Mr. Besson’s production company that chose to partner with Titan Poker and feature the online poker room in the film.

The film focuses on James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), a low-level CIA operative who dreams of becoming a bona fide agent and seeing some real action. His first senior-level assignment has him partnered with Charlie Wax (John Travolta) – a trigger-happy, wisecracking, loose cannon who’s been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack. Charlie drags James through the Parisian underworld on a shooting spree that has James wishing he could go back to his cushy desk job, until James discovers that he is a target of the same crime ring they are trying to bust and realizes there is no turning back…

Titan Poker gets its big screen exposure in a scene in which one of the film’s characters is playing online poker. From Paris with Love was released on February 5th in the US and will hit screens in France on February 17th.

As a promotion for the release of the film, Titan Poker’s French site will be holding an exclusive From Paris with Love Tournament in which players can win up to $5,000. The site will also be giving away merchandise and tickets to the film at different intervals throughout the tournament.

Million Dollar Online Poker Tournament Winner

Posted by Gambling News | Poker News | Wednesday 17 February 2010 7:01 pm

An online poker player from Athens wins $200,000 in the popular poker room’s $1,000,000 Guaranteed event, a month and a half after winning a prestigious ECOOP tournament.

Winning an online poker multi-table tournament is difficult enough in itself, but taking first prize in two huge events within a very short period of time is quite a remarkable achievement.

Athanasios Ntalakas, a regular player at Titan Poker for the past two years, bested 1,675 other starters on January 10, 2010 and took home the first prize of $200,000 in the $1,000,000 Guaranteed Prize tournament, a monthly event at the popular online poker room.

Back on November 23, 2009, Athanasios, whose home is Athens, Greece, won the first prize of $52,000 at the first event of Titan Poker’s European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP V). That tournament, also a Texas Holdem No Limit Freezeout, carried a $250,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool and was the opener of the fourteen-night series.

Commenting on his win at the $1,000,000 Guaranteed tournament, Athanasios said the Final Table was "by far the toughest" he had ever played. "People were not afraid to put their chips in the middle and put you to the test constantly by 3-betting and shoving. I was fortunate to win my big flips and even when I was low in chips my friends were encouraging me. Finally, I made it to Heads Up with Neil Channing with a 2:1 deficit. Steadily I managed to acquire the same chips and at the final hand I was lucky to outdraw Neil. It was a tough heads-up match against a great opponent."

"My experience so far at Titan Poker is amazing and I will continue playing for a long time and also give it a try at satellites for a live event," Athanasios said.

Athanasios, who is primarily an online poker player, added, "My win at the $1,000,000 Guaranteed is by far my biggest poker accomplishment, but my excitement was the same as when I won the 1st event of ECOOP V. Winning is a great feeling and I am looking forward to the future for similar successes."

At his previous win in November, Athanasios outlasted 1,240 other starters in an online tournament that lasted 9 hours and 17 minutes. In addition to his cash prize, he was awarded with a prestigious Tag Heuer automatic chronograph series Carrera watch, engraved with his nickname and the name of the online tournament that he won.
