“I’ve never played in an event as big as the Winter Poker Championship in Seefeld,” he said.  “The biggest tournament I ever played in was a $500 buy-in with about 100 players.  I finished on the bubble.  Aside from that, I’ve played in several small tournaments in Las Vegas, Palm Springs and Commerce Casino in Los Angeles.”

A Financial Analyst from LA won his way to the Winter Poker Championship in Seefeld, Austria next month by winning an online satellite tournament at Intertops Poker last weekend.  Douglas Klein is a regular in the local casinos but this will be his first overseas tournament.
 
Douglas will make the trip with Tim O’Keefe who won his way to the Austrian ski resort the same way last year. Since then, as a sponsored player, Tim has competed in tournaments in St Maarten and Aruba with the Intertops Poker team.
 
Sunday’s Final, the last tournament in a three tier tournament series, was a nail-biter for Klein.
 
“I had the chip lead going into heads up so I felt like I would win,“ recalled the champion.  ”I ended up by putting my opponent all-in with 88.  He had A7.  That was it.  The most exciting moment I’ve had playing poker – and now I’m going to Europe!”
 
Klein won a $4,000 prize package that includes €2160 buy-in to the Winter Poker Championship Main Event (February 24th to 26th), premium accommodation in the Tyrolean ski resort, and travel expenses. The online satellite tournaments were co-hosted by Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Poker.
 
The winner has a strategy for winning online tournaments that certainly worked for him this time.

Douglas will have his wife with him for moral support, and O’Keefe will be there to help him get the lay of the land.

“My first time over there I couldn’t believe how differently they play in Europe!” said O’Keefe.  “Maybe all that schnitzel makes them so aggressive? I don’t know, but I’m more ready for them this year, that’s for sure!”

Both Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes welcome players from anywhere in the world. They’re the busiest online poker rooms on the Horizon Poker Network and also offer a selection of casino games.
