Intertops Poker players at CPT Punta Cana 13 Nov, 2015
13 November 2015 (Press Release) -- It was a bit of a nail-biter toward the end, but Arturo Morales of Costa Rica won the CPT Punta Cana and walked away with $44,494. Pura vida!
Living the Dream Team member Daniel Montagnolli went pretty far in the CPT Punta Cana Main Event over the weekend but sadly, none of the guys that won their way to the Caribbean at Intertops Poker made it to the final table. Daniel was one of five players that won their way to the live poker tournament in Dominican Republic by winning online satellite tournaments at Intertops Poker.
Daniel went into Day 2 in 8th place with 85,000 chips but ultimately placed 26th. He pocketed about $1700.
“I’m thinking he blew that at Coco Bongo nightclub in Punta Cana before he went back to Austria,” said an Intertops representative travelling with the team. “His trip was paid for. So c’est la vie I guess!”
Part of what made CPT Punta Cana an interesting event were the other events happening at the same time: the World Swimsuit Finals and its parties for starters. The 500K Punta Cana Classic, running concurrently, added to the excitement. Venezuelan Luis Yapez won that event, taking home $171,000. There were lots of other events with two to three hundred dollar buy-ins – plenty of opportunities to take advantage of what Montagnolli thought was a pretty soft field.
Intertops is already looking forward to sending more players to Dominican Republic for CPT Punta Cana 2016.
An online satellite tournament running this weekend at Intertops will send the winner to the WPT Hollywood Deepstacks in Hollywood, Florida in January. The $2500 prize package awarded to the winner of the Final November 15th will win a package that includes luxury accommodation at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Seminole.
November 3, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – Enchanting woodland nymphs at Intertops Casino will award $120,000 in casino bonuses this month.

A $1000 cash prize will be awarded at the end of the promotion.
Intertops Casino players earn points when they play any of the casino’s hundreds of games from Realtime Gaming and earn bonuses based on their points ranking. The top twenty players each week will be entered in a draw for a $1000 cash prize on December 1.
“The more you play, the more points you earn and the bigger your prize could be each week,” explained Intertops’ casino manager. “Every Monday we re-set the scoreboard and start the race for top bonuses all over again!”
Every Thursday, 50 players that have played earlier in the week will get additional bonuses up to $150. Contest details and current player scoreboard rankings are available at: https://casino.intertops.eu/en/promotions

October 21, 2015 (Press Release) – Three online satellite tournament champions from Intertops Poker will be competing in the CPT Punta Cana Main Event November 6 - 8. The poker room is making original content (stories and videos) available to affiliates for promoting the brand on their sites.
“We’ve awarded three $4100 prize packages and we’re sending a video crew to the Caribbean. That’s a big investment,” said Intertops poker manager. “Online satellite tournaments have proven to be very appealing to players, though. So we hope affiliates will take advantage of the content that we create for them – stories and videos – to promote the brand on their sites.”
“I’m really looking forward to joining the players in Punta Cana,” said Larry Colcy, aka The Gamblogger, who will be producing daily video reports from the CPT Punta Cana Main Event. “I’ll have daily tournament results as well as interviews with the Living the Dream players and other players at the tournament. I’ll also follow them around with my video camera as they enjoy the resort!”
Three online tournament champions have won their way to the Caribbean: 32 year old Austrian poker pro, Daniel Montagnolli; Derek Scallon, a Chicago poker pro and film producer and Phil Cardella, a Pittsburgh CAD designer and purely recreational player.
CPT Punta Cana will be at the luxurious five-star Punta Cana Hard Rock Hotel November 3rd to 8th. Last November, American poker pro Ari Engel defeated a field of 507 to claim the trophy and $177,045 for his victory in the 2014 Punta Cana Poker Classic. Cheap, direct flights from North America as well as the mix of amateur and pros make the CPT Punta Cana an event not to be missed.

September 15, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – An Intertops Casino player had an incredible lucky streak the other night when he won $120K playing Let 'Em Ride and then over $182K on a network progressive, making a total of over $300K.
Donovan A., 30, said he plans to buy a place in Las Vegas with his winnings. He enjoys slots and plays them a lot online and in the local casino. He said he doesn’t actually play Let ‘Em Ride a lot so winning on the poker-based game was pure luck.
“I’ve played it enough to know how it works, but it definitely was just a lucky win,” he told an Intertops Casino customer service rep.
Let 'Em Ride is a simple game where players are paid based on their five-card hand. There is no dealer hand to compete with.
“I knew it was coming when I saw the first three cards,” Donovan recalled. “I jumped out of my chair! Later I went to the casino to celebrate with champagne and tip some dealers.”
Donovan enjoys playing in the local casino but thinks the odds are better online: “I like casinos because of the excitement, but I prefer online casinos because the odds are better for both casino and sportsbook.”
