Intertops satellite winners preparing for Caribbean

1 Oct 2014

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Two winners of Caribbean Poker Tour satellites hosted by Juicy Stakes Poker and Intertops Poker are preparing for an amazing tournament trip to St Maartens next month. Chris P aka “Grandma Mary” won his $2700 prize package in an online satellite in August. “Sim79” from Quebec, Canada just won his trip last Sunday.

Grandma Mary and Sim79 will be sharing their adventures in the Caribbean by posting stories, pics and videos to a new blog, Living the Dream.

“This isn't 2007 anymore. Tournaments are hard now,” Grandma Mary, 30, said in his opening blog post today. “But I think I’ll do well in St Maartens. Playing live the same style that I do online has been successful because people make so many mistakes live. If I could multi table live poker, I’d have a lot more money in my pocket than I do now!”

The Caribbean Poker Tour Main Event (buy in $1000 + $100), November 1-2, will bring poker players from around the world together a few days before the WPT Caribbean Tournament. Schedule of CPT satellites and main events: http://caribbeanpokertour.com/tour/poker-schedule.

Grandma Mary, who’s lifetime total winnings total over $160,000, recalls the online tournament where he won the all-inclusive luxury tournament trip: “I didn't play scared. In a top heavy tournament like this you have to be able to make some plays and grind out all the small edges you can. It was up and down for me. A few times I got overly aggressive but I always picked up hands when I needed them.”

“It was when we were three handed and I had a slight chip lead that I realized I might win. I was short stacked coming into the final table so I obviously ran really well.”

He thought his competition at the online satellite tournament was fairly soft.

“Most players were either too nitty or too aggressive. There were a few decent MTT regulars in the tournament but it was a Sunday so I figured most of them were playing lots of tables and probably weren't paying much attention to this one. This allowed me to open a lot more on their blinds and fold some big hands to them as well.”

“One thing I’ve I learned is the biggest thing is to understand
bankroll management. Make sure you have a minimum of 100 buy-ins,
preferably 200 – 300.”

“The guys who are doing really good at poker are putting in the hours.
Michael Jordan didn't become the best basketball player by sitting around, he practiced every day and that's what all poker players need to do too.”

“Poker has always been fun for me. The money is nice, but I love competing. I’d like to win a WSOPC ring event. If things go right, I could see moving to Costa Rica to grind full time.”
