“There’s a bunch of guys that play a lot of our satellites,” said Intertops’ poker manager. “Lots of rivalries. We’ve taken Tim O’Keefe out of the mix though – he’s a sponsored player now so he’ll be with us in Austria this summer and in the Caribbean this fall, but this time someone else can win the prize packages!”
