Win Your Way to the €700,000 European Poker Championship in Austria this Summer



After yesterday’s exciting final in their first series of European Poker Championship online satellite tournaments, a second series begins this week at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino.  Daily Step 1 tournaments will be held five times a day beginning Wednesday. Another $6500 prize package will be awarded on May 20th and the winner will be on their way to Austria this summer.


The prestigious $770K European Poker Championship (Poker EM) takes place in Velden, Austria from July 18th to 29th. The annual tournament at the luxurious lakeside mountain resort attracts both professional and recreational players, mainly from Austria, Germany and Italy.


“The prize pool for the Main Event in Velden, where a bunch of our players will be competing, is estimated to be more than €700,000, or $770,000,” said Intertops’ poker manager.  “There’s also lots of other tournaments and cash games on more than 40 tables.”

Wannabe champions can buy-in at any stage of the three-tier tournament series, or just buy-in at the first level for $3 and try to win their way to the Final.

The $6500 prize package to be awarded at the Final on May 20th includes the $2700 buy-in to the Main Event and accommodation near the casino. The online poker tournament winner will also get $500 towards travel expenses and enjoy a welcome dinner with the Intertops/Juicy Stakes crew.
