“We’ve taken players to a bunch of live tournaments like this,” said Intertops’ Poker Manager.  “We picked this one because there will be lots of poker action, lots of opportunities to win some cash – but also lots of time to enjoy some fun in the sun!”

Four players that won online satellite tournaments at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Poker are on their way to the Caribbean for the PPC Aruba World Championship. 
 
One member of the team, Joan Sandoval, placed 6th in the $5000 GTD at PPC Aruba last year and is looking forward to playing the Main Event this year.
 
“I know a lot of my competition in Aruba, actually. I know it is going to be a tough crowd with a lot of good professional players” said Joan from her home in Wisconsin.  
 
When he’s not grinding online at Intertops, Tim O’Keefe plays mostly in casinos in Texas where he lives and in nearby Oklahoma. He also travels to Foxwoods a few times a year.  This is the third time that Tim, who only recently quit his day job and turned pro, has won his way to a major live tournament like this.
 
No stranger to the casinos of Las Vegas where he lives, this is the second Intertops/Juicy Stakes junket for John Curcuru.  Also an avid chess player, John joined the Intertops team at the TKPT tournament in St Maarten this spring.
 
“It’s great travelling with a group like this,” said John.  “The camaraderie really helps you cope with the pressure of the tournament.  Intertops took very good care of us last time so I’m really looking forward to joining them again!”
 
The fourth member of the team is Texas poker mom Ashley Hines. PPC Aruba will be her fourth live tourney.
 
The PPC Aruba World Championship is one of the most exotic stops on the Poker Players Championships circuit, now in its fourth season, which includes high stakes events all over America.
