Win Your Way to Aruba Poker Tournament

Hungarian Daniel Lukacs, who won a recent online satellite tournament at Intertops Poker, will be playing in the $500K GTD PPC Aruba World Poker Championship in November -- and so will three more online poker tournament champions. Intertops Poker and Juicy StakesPoker are hosting three satellite tournament series this summer, each awarding a $5000 prize package. 

Daily satellites begin July 25th, culminating in the next Final Table July 31st.  Next month there will be two more series, August 8 – 14 and August 22 – 28, and two more winners.

PPC Aruba satellite champions receive $5000 prize packages that include $2400 buy-in to the Main Event (November 4th – 7th) and accommodation on Palm Beach at the Hilton or Hyatt Resort. Both packages also include travel expenses, one $200 tournament buy-in and one $300 buy-in, as well as Intertops or Juicy Stakes gear and dinner and a night out with the Intertops or Juicy Stakes team.

“There will be lots of tournaments and lots of opportunities to win some cash in Aruba,” said Intertops’ Poker Manager.  “But there will also be plenty of time for fun in the sun on a beautiful tropical island!”

Vincent Fiorenza won the 2015 PPC Aruba Main Event taking home $106,047 of the $500,000 GTD prize pool. The tournament organisers also gave him a $5000 prize package for this year so he'll be returning to Aruba to defend his title.
