Rikard Aberg went to Velden, Austria with a group of players from Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino. They'd each won a prize package that included buy-in to the Main Event. Here's Rikard's videos:
A trip to a poker tournament can be so much more than just playing poker. During Poker EM in Velden, the Intertops qualifiers obviously played the Main Event, but they also enjoyed a great barbecue outside the casino, facing the beautiful lake Wörthersee.
Each year, the last two weeks in july, the best place to play poker in Europe is Velden Austria. Poker pro Erich Kollmann has come to Casino Velden each summer for his entire adult life and after a fourth place finish in the PLO championship on Monday, he welcomes all players to join him for Wednesday's Main Event start.
It is THAT time of the year, when Intertops travels to Velden with the online qualifiers to take part in the lovely Poker EM at Casino Velden. Poker Manager Hjalmar Lethin talks to Rikard Aberg about the coming week inside and outside the poker room and the great group of qualifiers who are representing Intertops in this tournament.
Aleksandr Bondarev from St Petersburg, managed to win one of the Poker EM satellites online on Intertops. He came all the way to Velden and he brought his friend and Mentor Aleksandr Kopasov, who will also play in the tournament. Here Bondarev talks about his way into poker, how he turned pro and why he really likes being in Velden.
One of the online satellite winners, in Intertops’ campaign leading to this year’s Poker EM in Velden, was Eduardo Rocha from Curitiba in Brazil. He is already loving the Austrian village by the lake Wörthersee.
Intertops online satellite winner Hussain Sajwani from Chicago, US, brought his girlfriend along for the poker adventure in Europe. After a really long trip across the pond, he is set to make his mark on European poker soil.

Down to fewer than ten big blinds, Intertops Poker qualifier Phillip Cardella moved all in and Michael Lech in the small blind reshoved.
Cardella had a flip with ace-queen suited against pocket jacks, but Lech immediately flopped a set and left his opponent drawing dead on the turn.
Nevertheless, our man Phil came in 17th, cashing in $3,500.
All of the players on the Intertops Poker / Juicy Stakes Casino team had a fantastic time and are looking forward to going back to St Maarten for some nice poker action and beautiful beaches.
