Good Luck to Lukas W Who's Going to WPT Venice This Weekend Courtesy Intertops Poker

Another online satellite winner is on his way a major live tournament event.  Lukas W, a 28 year old civil servant from Germany, will be copmpeting in the WPT Venice Main Event.  The champion of a gruelling online satellite tournament series, Lukas (Buck$Bunny) won a $2200 prize package that includes €990 buy-in and premium hotel accommodation for him and his girlfriend.

They were 22 players in the WPT Venice online satellite Final where Lukas won his prize package. Here's what he had to say about that event:

"I used a re-buy and an add-on. During the tournament I was one of the Big Stacks and I found good spots in all-in situations. I think patience is very important as well as aggression at the right time. At the end, the players were scared and so it was possible to get some chips with raise in position. "

"I realized that I might win when we were 3-handed."

"I eliminated one of the opponents in an all in situation KQ>K7 and won a huge pot. At the heads-up, the other player was crippled and so it was over very quick. "

"I don't play lots of major events. Usually, I'm playing cash games. "

"In 2013 I played a 330€ side event at the EPT Berlin and last year I won a seat at the FPS Cannes for 1.100€. I reached day 2 with only 25BB, and I busted fast without cash. Hopefully, it's time for a catch in Venice this weekend! "

A premiere event on the WPT European circuit, the three-day Gioco Digitale WPT National Venice will be played at the luxurious Casino de Venezia, the oldest gaming establishment in the world.  The tournament begins April 17th and the Final Table is on April 20th. The game will be No Limit Texas Hold’em. Players will begin with 30,000 chips. Blind levels last 40 minutes. The prize pool will be €200,000 guaranteed.
