Intertops, Juicy Stakes to send satellite winner to CAPT Seefeld
8 Dec 2015
Recent winners went to the Caribbean, but this time the destination is an Austrian ski resort. The winner of a three-tier satellite tournament series beginning this week will receive a $3,200 prize package to play in the CAPT Seefeld Main Event in February.
Several daily Step 1 tournaments, with a buy-in of only $2 + $0.20, begin Wednesday and continue until Dec. 19. The prize package awarded to the winner of the final on Dec. 20 includes buy-in (€2,160) to the CAPT Seefeld Main Event (Feb. 25-29), four nights at a premium hotel and $500 to help with travel expenses.
"It would be great to see another player go all the way," said Intertops' Poker manager. "Just last week, one of our players won the TKPT event in St Maarten -- over $30,000 in prize money and he got there by winning a $2 Step 1 tourney and then winning his way all the way to the main event!"
The TKPT winner's story is on the Living the Dream blog, where online players share their live tournament experiences.
Players can win their way to Austria or buy in at any stage of the CAPT Seefeld tournaments.

CAPT Seefeld, where there will be an estimated €800,000 in prize money, is part of the CAPT Big Four. Last year, an Intertops online satellite champion won his way to CAPT Velden, and even made it to the final table at that €500 buy-in event.
"I like CAPT tournaments because all kinds of people come to play: pros, as well as people on holiday," Christoph said after nearly winning. "There's a good mix of people and playing skills. For me it's also fun to meet a lot of players that I know but don't see very often."
