French player wins Titan prize.
A relatively new online poker player hailing from Marseille in France, Remy Elkoubi pulled a remarkable straight flush out of the bag to net him the $100,000 jackpot prize on the online poker site, Titan Poker. To qualify for this huge prize, Elkoubi won six consecutive Fort Knox Jackpot Sit 'n' Go tournaments.
‘I had tried to win this Jackpot a few times, but I never had any success until this beautiful day,’ said Elkoubi. ‘I will remember this day for all of my life. I can barely recall the final game as I was under so much pressure -- but I remember the last hand. I won the Jackpot with the most beautiful hand -- a Straight Flush. A Straight Flush that earned me $100,000! I never believed that I could win this prize but the reality was different, the Fort Knox fortress is not untouchable. Thank you Titan Poker!’
Remy Elkoubi is the fifth Titan Poker player to win the Fort Knox Jackpot in the past few months. In July, Guy Meridjen, also from France, won $100,000. In April, Derrick Morin from Canada, Richard Stringer from the United Kingdom and Joseph Dulaney from Texas all won the Grand Prize. Derrick Morin had never even made a deposit when he hit the $100,000 Jackpot.
The Buy-ins to the Fort Knox tournaments is $50 + $9. The Fort Knox Jackpot starts out at $50,000 and rolls over by $10,000 each week if no player wins enough consecutive tournaments to take the prize. Any player, who finishes in first or second place in six consecutive tournaments, but falls just short of winning the Grand Prize, will nonetheless be rewarded with a prize of $750.
