A player who won his way to the Caribbean by winning online satellite tournaments at Intertops Poker went all the way and won the TKPT Caribbean tournament in St Maarten last week.

The prize pool was $124,160 and Akash Mazumdar from the USA won $33,930 for his first place finish.

Players had a starting stack of 20,000 chips. Levels were 45 and 60 minutes. The competition started with 128 players.

“I am happy. I just won the Main Event of the TKPT and it’s a special and pleasant feeling," Mazumdar said after his spectacular win in the Caribbean. "I qualified online through a satellite at Intertops which rewarded me with a full package -- a five-day holiday in an all-inclusive hotel plus the $1100 buy-in for the Main Event!"

"Personally I think the structure of this tournament was perfect. The wisdom and experience of Thomas Kremser organizing tournaments is tangible. The event was great from start to finish, especially the final table. During all seven hours of play the action was crisp. The international field that participated created a unique atmosphere. St. Maarten is really a friendly island.”
