While the CAPT Seefeld poker tournament has already begun in Austria, Intertops and Juicy Stakes Poker satellite winners, took the time to brush up on their skills and measure their competition prior to the Main Event. Participants Tim, Chris, and Daniel, took part in small tournaments and cash games, deciding that they were confident in their abilities.
Chris, from Pittsburg, took some time to reflect on his experience thus far, stating, 'It's taken me awhile to get used to these European players' style. They all seem to be extremely cautious or extremely aggressive, not too many that fall somewhere in the middle like I do.'
Fellow satellite winner, Tim O'Keefe from Texas, added, 'The structure of these smaller tournaments sucks. They're too fast. No time to get a read on the other players. I'm looking forward to the Main Event where we have more time and more chips to play with.'
Daniel, from Innsbruck, put in his two cents in agreeance with Tim, stating, 'The way the Main Even is structured, you can easily grind because you get 50,000 chips and sixty minute levels. You don't have so many showdowns like in the turbo tournament. It's so deep and the blinds increase so slowly so you can really play your hands and you're not all in all that often. You're always deep. That's very nice!'
Each of the players are detailing their experiences via video reports on the Living the Dream poker blog. In fact, Tim adds, 'Living the Dream -- no better way to describe this trip! I've only been in Austria two days and would already say this is an experience of a lifetime! The amazing architecture, history and beautiful scenery have kept me so busy and excited, that I almost forgot we are here to play poker!! Haha It might be too amazing here to play as both Daniel and I have come up short, getting pretty unlucky in a couple of the smaller buy in events so far. No worries though, I'm convinced we are just saving all for the main event!'
O'Keefe further went on to say that 'The people at Intertops have done an incredible job here. They've gone above and beyond for us players. I cannot thank them enough!'
