“The idea of scooping a win for insane amounts of money for only a cheap satellite entry online is living the dream to be sure!” said O’Keefe from his home in Texas. “Not only do Intertops and Juicy Stakes pick great tournaments in great spots, they over deliver on taking care of their players.”

“I wish I could say I took home the title in Velden, but the experience itself was a win for sure,” recalls O’Keefe. “We all made day two, which is always tough and a plus for any poker player. The big buy-in and long structure always bring around the better players, so just making it that far was quite an accomplishment. I was a bit jealous the others hit the beach without me but I can’t complain too much since I was playing for a chance at $142K and the trophy!”

Tim was eliminated early on Day 3 but Emil went out in 6th place. He was disappointed it wasn’t a win, but the $26k in his pocket made him feel better very quickly!

This year the EPC Velden prize pool is estimated to be over €700,000 (over $770,000). Players from all over Europe (especially Germany and Italy) will play tournaments and cash games on more than 40 tables at the exclusive lakeside resort.
