Videos from Velden, Austria begin July 27th.

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.”

Every day Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes host a variety of online poker tournaments including three daily free rolls and the $1500 GTD Sundowner at 7:15 Eastern every evening. This weekend the hot ticket is the Sunday Six Max six-handed tournaments series $200 GTD, $550 GTD or $1200 GTD. Sunday Six Max details are available at: and You can register for any of these tournaments under the Tournaments tab in the poker software.
