(PRESS RELEASE) -- A series of online satellite tournaments that begin Wednesday at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes will send the winner to Velden, Austria, this summer to compete in the prestigious $770K European Poker Championship. The $6,500 prize package to be awarded at the Final on 6 May includes the $2,700 buy-in to the Main Event and accommodation in the luxurious mountain resort.

“Velden is a great place for a poker tournament,” said Intertops’ poker manager. “During the day you can relax by the lake and enjoy the mountain air. Then it’s time for high stakes poker with players from all over Europe!”
