Intertops EPC Velden!

Get ready for another trip to Austria! Along with the “Milli Maker” WSOP satellites we are running, Intertops is also getting geared up for the aftermath of the World Series!

Last year, Velden was a GREAT trip for me and everyone at Team Intertops! Three of us had deep runs but fun was had by all! I finished 22nd and one of our players even hit the final table for 6th place, cashing for almost 30k! But even without such success for our players, the trip itself would have been a win! We had a beautiful location, great event, delicious (but weird lol) food and some amazing company! It was a blast! Exciting poker and an exciting atmosphere! Velden is a vacation hot spot and there’s always something fun going on, both in the Poker room and out! Be sure not to miss out! Get your seat in tomorrow’s satellite final and stay tuned for the next!! Join us and grab your share of estimated prize money of more than 700,000 Euro (about $770,000)! The European Poker Championship 2017 takes place from July 19th to 30th (main event: July 27th to 30th) Until then here’s the first part of last years adventure!! Enjoy! and I hope to see you at this years event!

On to the next one! The WSOP may be over but the poker never stops! We have arrived in Velden, Austria for the another amazing tournament series! Myself and the rest of Team Intertops are in this beautiful location to take a shot at the massive 2700 euro Poker EM main event! Intertops had satellites running for a while a couple months ago for this awesome trip, and lucky few of us are here to attempt to make the poker dream a reality. The idea of scooping a win here for insane amounts of money for only a cheap satellite entry online is “Living the Dream” to be sure! Intertops has done it again, not only did they pick a great tourney in a great spot, they over deliver on taking care of their players. From helping with rides from the airport to getting us settled at the hotel/casino to taking us all out on a boat ride to an amazing dinner! Its been incredible and its only day two! lol No ones even played poker yet!

After writing my last blog post on lesson learned from the WSOP, I knew I needed to take a step back and get some perspective. I will admit, at first the idea of traveling this far and playing poker again so soon after the WSOP wrapped up was not looking so great to me. The life of playing poker professionally can be brutal sometimes. The airport lines, the long flights, hotel living, the costs and just the straight grind that is tournament poker wears on you quickly. But as soon as I arrived here, I knew this opportunity could not have come at a better time. The country is beautiful, the location is amazing, and the people I’ve met already are great! It’s already been the best reminder for why I wanted to do this for a living! These are the experiences that make all the losses, bad beats and close calls worth it. The job could allows us to travel across the globe to play a GAME…It puts things in perspective really quickly, especially with all the tragedies that seem to be happening on a daily basis in the world.

Wish us all luck, as we start our main event here today! And I know from my previous experience in Seefeld that the competition will be fierce. At least the insanely aggressive play will not be a surprise this time around! lol It should be a really challenging tournament to say the least, but I know will all will enjoy it! Maybe Team Intertops can come away with a five way chop!? (Nahhhh no chops! but I’ll let them have 2-5th at least! lol) We are all hoping for a deep run and to come home with the championship trophy, but all we can do is play our best and enjoy the ride! Everyone here has already won in my book! I’ll be back soon with another post updating our day 1 status!

Being adventurous and trying the local cuisine!
