Intertops Poker Player Getting Live Tournament Experience at WPT Venice this Weekend

Intertops Poker Online Satellite Champion Off to Italy for WPT VeniceIntertops Poker is sending another online satellite winner to a big live tournament event this weekend.  This time it's Lukas W, a 28 year old civil servant from Germany, and he'll be competing in the WPT Venice.  The winner will post photos and stories from Venice on the Living the Dream blog.

Lukas won a $2200 WPT Prize Package that includes €990 buy-in for the WPT National Main Event plus premium hotel accommodation near the casino for him and his girlfriend.

At the Final Table in the online satellite tournament series there were 21 other players hoping to go to Italy. Lukas recalls the game:

"I used a re-buy and an add-on. During the tournament I was one of the Big Stacks and I found good spots in all-in situations. I think patience is very important as well as aggression at the right time. At the end, the players were scared and so it was possible to get some chips with raise in position. "

An Intertops Poker player that recently won an online satellite tournament will be at the WPT Venice this weekend.

"I realized that I might win when we were 3-handed." "I eliminated one of the opponents in an all in situation KQ>K7 and won a huge pot. At the heads-up, the other player was crippled and so it was over very quick. "

"I don't play lots of major events. Usually, I'm playing cash games. " "In 2013 I played a 330€ side event at the EPT Berlin and last year I won a seat at the FPS Cannes for 1.100€. I reached day 2 with only 25BB, and I busted fast without cash. Hopefully, it's time for a catch in Venice this weekend!"

The €200,000 GTD WPT National Venice will be at the Casino de Venezia, the world's oldest gaming establishment, April 17th to April 20th. The game will be No Limit Texas Hold’em. Players will begin with 30,000 chips. Blind levels last 40 minutes. The prize pool will be €200,000 guaranteed.

Later this month three other online satellite winners will be in the Caribbean representing Team Intertops at the $200K GTD CPPT St Maarten after winning $4100 prize packages last weekend.

South African Players Wins R40,000 on R40 Deposit

Player Spins 40 Rands into R40 000 then Blows the WadEasy come, easy go I guess!  I just heard a story about a young Springbok Casino player that took a R40 deposit and spun it into into 40,000 Rands last week.  Nice one.  Fortunately he says he has no regrets about spending it all since then!

Jonathan D of Witbank played for several hours on his modest deposit.  As usual, he stuck mostly to his favourite online slot game, Double Ya Luck. He decided to quit for the day when he was up R40,000.

“It just goes to show,” said casino manager Daniel Van Wyk, “You don’t have to deposit millions to win. Jonathan won a lot of money on a small deposit – it really can happen like that!"

I like Double Ya Luck, a relatively  new game from RTG.  It's a mix of board game, dice and slot machine.  Spin a few dice symbols to trigger the bonus game and you'll see what I mean.

“DOUBLE”, “YA” and “LUCK” symbols trigger the 50/50 gamble feature that gives you a chance to double your win.

Lucky South African online casino player wins big after small deposit.

Jonathan had some of his winning streak on Crazy Vegas, which brings the bright lights of The Strip to the casino, and the Chinese-themed Year of Fortune slot game. He said he has no plans for his winnings since he’s already spent it all. Well, why not I guess!
