“Playing online has definitely helped me a lot, said the tournament champion. "Even though there are big differences between online and offline poker, there is no substitute for the experience of many thousands of online hands, where you play at least 10-20x as many hands in the same time.”

One of Intertops Poker’s CAPT Velden online qualifiers will be at one of Austria’s most luxurious casino resorts for the $1,000,000 CAPT Velden tournament this weekend. Intertops’ poker manager will accompany “Christoph” to the €500 event he’s playing on Saturday.
 
Talking about his approach to tournament play, the Intertops champion said his strategy depends on the buy-in.
 
“In the early levels I try to get a feeling for the table dynamics and players playing tendencies. I try to keep my chips together for the later stages, where the pots are bigger and making moves is more profitable than in the early stages.”
 
“But if it’s lower, I would deviate from it and play more hands even in the early levels.”
 
Last year Christoph won the €500 buy-in event in Velden. Despite his win, he wasn’t entirely happy with his game play.
 
“Coming to the final table I realized there was a table bully so I decided to not mess with him and I sat back and watched players eliminating each other.”
 
“But  I shouldn’t have called a 3-bet shove from a tight player close to the final table with AQ. Of course you’re always smarter in hindsight.”
 
“One thing I tell people that are new to tournaments: never play at buy-ins where you feel uncomfortable. You’re not playing your best if you can’t afford the buy-in.”
 
Set in breathtaking surroundings, CAPT Velden, July 11-20th, will have at least 25 cash tables and €1,000,000 in prize money. Christoph was one of two Intertops Poker players that won a CAPT Velden prize package in online qualifier tournaments at the online poker room that’s popular with players all over the world.
