Online Satellite Winners en Route to Austria for €700,000 European Poker Championship -- Video Reports Start July 27



Online satellite tournament winners from our sponsors, Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Poker, are on their way to Austria next week where they’ll compete in the prestigious Main Event of the European Poker Championship in Velden. Video reports from the tournament, featuring interviews with the players, will be online beginning July 27th.

They each won a $4000 prize package that includes €2700 buy-in to the EPC main event (July 27th to 30th), accommodation at a premium hotel close to the casino and cash for travel expenses.

This year the EPC Velden prize pool is estimated to be over €700,000 (over $770,000). Players from all over Europe (especially Germany and Italy) will play tournaments and cash games on more than 40 tables at the exclusive lakeside resort.

Sven, one of the online poker champions on the Intertops team, is a German tennis coach.  He plays mostly online but has played a few live tournaments -- smaller tourneys, not big buy-ins. This is his second European Poker Championship and he looks forward to returning to the Austrian spa resort for another poker holiday.“Last year there were a lot of good players and a big prize pool. ” he said. “Like last year, I’ll make this a vacation, go swimming, go out a little bit, then play the tournament. The casino is very beautiful – and there are a lot of cash games to play as well!”

Derek, a professional poker player from Los Angeles, California, also won an online satellite tournament at Intertops Poker and will be joining Sven in Austria.

He recalled the online tournament where he won his trip: “When I doubled through the chip leader, I started to realize that I might just win the tournament. At that point I had a decent stack to play with so I knew I had a good shot to take it down.”

“My strategy for online tournaments is to stay cool in early stages, try to find good spots to make chips with the best hand,” he added. “In later stages I get more and more aggressive. The best is winning the pots without showdown, especially in the late stage.”
