Pascal LeFrancois wins PokerStars Titans Events for $103,915.28
The Titans Event is the most expensive weekly online tournament at PokerStars and therefore always generates elite fields. And so it didn’t come as a surprise that with Pascal LeFrancois one of the top players emerged victorious.
77 entries were a great outcome as the guaranteed prize pool was boosted by almost 30%.
Only nine players received a share of the $385,000 prize pool with Jargo “bungakat” Alavali becoming bubble boy, while the remaining players had secured at least $12,002 with a whopping $103K up top.
The top prize was taken home by high stakes regular Pascal LeFrancois, who defeated “drew.derzh” from the Ukraine heads-up.

This time a whopping 489 players signed up and smashed the $400K Guarantee by more than 22%.
In the end there were $489,000 in the prize pool and the lion share went to Austria in form of Thomas Hueber.
The Austrian prevailed on a final table mainly consisting of online players. Once the heads-up was reached, Hueber and “takemeaway” from Montenegro made an ICM deal, which secured Thomas Hueber the trophy and biggest paycheque.
