English player sent to WPT

9 November 2006

ENGLAND – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Piers Shepperson from the town of Slough in the southeast of England will represent online poker room Titan Poker at the upcoming World Poker Finals, being held between November 11 and 14 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Shepperson won his seat at the second of Titan Poker's World Poker Tour "Pick Your Tournament" series.

The World Poker Tour "Pick Your Tournament" series of Super Satellite tournaments awards skillful players with seats at upcoming World Poker Tour tournaments being held across the United States. This unique tournament series offers winners a $12,000 package to one of these upcoming poker events, allowing the player to choose the date and destination.

Shepperson (nickname BlindWombat) is the second Titan Poker player to win a World Poker Tour "Pick Your Tournament." He had been playing at Titan Poker for less than a year when he won the tournament, and this is the first time that he will ever play in the World Poker Tour.

"I feel really great about winning the World Poker Tour 'Pick Your Tournament.' I am very keen to play in a WPT Tournament for the first time and represent Titan Poker at such an exciting event."

Titan Poker players have three more chances to 'pick' their seat at the World Poker Tour, with three remaining Satellites coming up over the next few months. Each Satellite offers players the opportunity to win seats at World Poker Open at Gold Strike Casino, Tunica in January 2007; the LA Poker Classic at the Commerce Casino, Commerce, in February, 2007 or the Bay 101 at the Shooting Star Bay 101, San Jose in March 2007.

Additional details about the 'World Poker Tour - Pick Your Tournament' series and the upcoming tournaments have been posted on the Titan Poker website.

The World Poker Tour – Pick Your Tournament series is just the latest of a long string of innovative promotions run by Titan Poker. Titan Poker's jackpot sit 'n' go tournaments are extremely popular and attract veteran and novice poker players alike. If a player succeeds in winning the appropriate number of consecutive tournaments, he is entitled to receive a huge jackpot prize in addition to the regular tournament payout. Titan Poker has already paid out more than $1.5 million in jackpot prizes to its various winners. In addition, Titan Poker regularly sends qualifying players to other land-based tournaments, including the World Series of Poker and the European Poker Tour.
