Intertops Poker Players May Not Have Made it to the Final Day of their Tournament but Enjoyed CAPT Velden Camaraderie

Intertops Poker Players Enjoyed CAPT Velden Austrian Poker TournamentAugust 12, 2014 — St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – Two Intertops Poker players that won their way to CAPT Velden last month did well for awhile but didn’t make it to the final day of their €500 event. While it didn’t end as they’d hoped, Christoph and Michael – who won their trips to Velden in online qualifiers at Intertops — enjoyed the company at the beautiful Austrian casino resort and plan to return next year to try again.

A player known only as “Joe” beat 214 other players to win the NLH Main Event at CAPT Velden, taking €105,400 of the €395,000 prize pool.

“Velden is one of the biggest tournaments in the CAPT season in terms of participants and it takes place in a great setting!” Christoph said. “It’s kind of the kick-off tournament. For me it’s also fun to meet a lot of players that I know but don’t see very often.”

“I played OK but I was very unhappy with one hand where all signs were telling me that my opponent was bluffing but I didn’t have the guts to call with my weak hand. After I folded, my analysis was proven to be right when my opponent showed his cards.”

“Competition was good this year, many players of different skills. Fun to play them and I learned a few things from observing some fun hands that went down on my table.”

Christoph was one of two Intertops Poker players that won his way to Velden by competing in online qualifier tournaments held in May and June at the online poker room that’s popular with players all over the world.
