St.Johns, Antigua and Barbuda, April 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The winner of a recent online satellite tournament series at Intertops Poker (http://poker.intertops.eu) is on his way to Italy this weekend to compete in the WPT Venice.
Lukas W, a 28 year old civil servant from Germany, won a $2200 WPT Prize Package that includes €990 buy-in for the WPT National Main Event plus premium hotel accommodation near the casino for him and his girlfriend.
They were 22 players in the WPT Venice online satellite tournament Final where Lukas (known as Buck$Bunny in the online poker room) won his prize package.
"I used a re-buy and an add-on," said Lukas. "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."
"I realized that I might win when we were 3-handed," he said.
"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," said Lukas.
"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€," he said. "I reached day 2 with only 25BB, and I busted fast without cash. Hopefully, it's time for a catch in Venice this weekend!"
A premiere event on the WPT European circuit, the three-day Gioco Digitale WPT National Venice will be played at the luxurious Casino de Venezia, the oldest gaming establishment in the world. The tournament begins April 17th and the Final Table is on 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.
