Online Champions Head to Caribbean for $250K GTD WSOPC Tournament in St Maarten

Living the Dream blog will publish pics and videos from the casino, the resort and the beaches plus daily freeroll passwords

March 26, 2019 — St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – Five online satellite winners from Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino are on their way to the Caribbean to compete in the $250,000 GTD WSOPC St Maarten Main Event this week.

Lukas, Daniel, Phil, Chris and Chris will converge on the Caribbean from Germany, Hungary and America.  They each took down an online satellite at Intertops or Juicy Stakes and won a $4500 prize package that includes the $1700 Main Event buy-in and luxury accommodation at the Sonesta Maho resort.

“The resort is between the casino and that beach where everyone goes to get blown around by KLM 747s,” laughed Intertops’ poker manager. “That may be how most people know St Maarten, but poker players know it as a great place to play poker!”

“I played a $2 rebuy to win a seat into the $110 satellite where I won this trip!”  said Phil who also won his way to Punta Cana at Juicy Stakes Casino three years ago.  “I’m a recreational player.  I work for an architect firm in Pittsburgh, but I play tournaments at the casino near me every now and then.  Really looking forward to going back to St Maarten!”

Lukas has won a seat in St Maarten before and also won an Intertops satellite for the WPT National in Venice. Last fall he won his way into the €500,000 Malta Poker Festival.

“I’m bring my girlfriend with me so she can relax at the beach and pool while I’m in the casino, hopefully getting my first Hendon Mob listing!”  he said.  “It’s a win-win situation – if I bust out early, I can have some fun in the sun with my girlfriend!”

Chris Perkins won his way to St Maarten at Intertops a couple of years ago. Since that first taste of international competition, he’s quit his day job and has been travelling and playing poker.

“I’m super excited to go back to the island,” said Chris. “I hope everything looks close to normal after the hurricane.”

The WSOPC St Maarten, now in its fourth year, is a well-run tournament produced by TK Poker.  It attracts all kinds of players – professionals, semi-professionals, and recreational – from all over the world. In addition to the main event, there will be lots of cash games to keep the players busy. Not to mention 27 beaches…
