Main Event Final Day -- Phil Places 17th


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.

US Income Tax was first imposed in 1861 to pay the costs of the Civil War. Changes have been made throughout the years, but Income Tax still remains – and Americans still dread April 15th, the final deadline for paying taxes.

Main Event Day 2 was a tough one for Team Intertops


After almost nine levels of 60 minutes each, the 2019 WSOPC Caribbean $1,700 Main Event has reached the money. All remaining 18 players out of 165 entries have $3,500 locked up for their efforts, but all eyes are set on the top prize of $67,000.

Intertops Poker qualifier Phillip Cardella was one of the players that doubled on the stone-cold money bubble and bagged up 107,000. He's looking to get back into the action today at 3:30pm local time to fight for the prize money and the WSOPC ring.

While our other players were eliminated during Day 2, some went back playing various cash games or played at the Event #32 NLHE $400 like German qualifier Lukas Wahlster. This semi-turbo event saw a lot of action but Lukas made his way to the final table, eliminated in 6th place with TT against QQ. In addition to winning some nice extra cash for his trip he had a great time so far in the event and is enjoying his spare time in the Caribbean.

Online Satellite Champions Head to the Caribbean for the WSOPC St Maarten


Pics and videos from the Caribbean starting March 29th!

We’re off to the Caribbean again this week with a group of online players that won seats at the WSOPC St Maarten Main Event.  Lukas, Daniel, Phil, Chris and Chris will converge on the Caribbean from Germany, Hungary and America.  We’ll follow their experience at the two-day tournament and we’ll hang out with them as they enjoy the unique tropical island.

In addition to the Main Event, there'll be lots of other action at the newly re-built Casino Royale, but for sure our players are going to want to hit the beaches and bars!



The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort where the players will be staying is between the casino and the famous beach where everyone goes to get blown around by KLM 747s. That may be how most people know St Maarten, but poker players know it as a great place to play poker!

“I played a $2 rebuy to win a seat into the $110 satellite where I won this trip!”  said Phil who also won his way to Punta Cana three years ago.  “I’m a recreational player.  I work for an architect firm in Pittsburgh, but I play tournaments at the casino near me every now and then.  Really looking forward to going back to St Maarten!”

Lukas has won a seat in St Maarten before and also won a satellite for the WPT National in Venice. Last fall he won his way into the €500,000 Malta Poker Festival.

“I’m bring my girlfriend with me so she can relax at the beach and pool while I’m in the casino, hopefully getting my first Hendon Mob listing!”  he said.  “It’s a win-win situation – if I bust out early, I can have some fun in the sun with my girlfriend!”

Chris Perkins won his way to St Maarten a couple of years ago. Since that first taste of international competition, he’s quit his day job and has been travelling and playing poker.

“I'm super excited to go back to the island,” said Chris. “I hope everything looks close to normal after the hurricane.” 

The WSOPC St Maarten, now in its fourth year, is a well-run tournament produced by TK Poker.  It attracts all kinds of players – professionals, semi-professionals, and recreational – from all over the world. In addition to the main event, there will be lots of cash games to keep the players busy. Not to mention 27 beaches…
