29 January 2015, London, UK (Press Release) -- With just days to go until Super Bowl XLIX, the matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots is almost too close to call. However as Sunday's showpiece draws closer, Intertops Sportsbook is seeing plenty of action on many of its varied prop markets.

The Patriots are currently a one-point favorite going into the biggest single sporting event of 2015, and bettors are backing tight end Rob Gronkowski to add to his two postseason touchdowns so far. ‘Gronk’ is -143 to score a touchdown at any time in the Super Bowl and +650 to score the first.

Seattle's main threat will likely come from Marshawn Lynch, the -167 favorite with Intertops Sportsbook in the ‘Anytime Touchdown’ market and +550 to get into the end zone first. The man known as ‘Beast Mode’ recorded an NFL-leading 17 regular season touchdowns compared to Gronkowski's 12, and the Seahawks running back is -125 to score a touchdown before Gronkowski in Sunday’s game.

"As is often the case with a game between two evenly-matched sides, we have seen a lot of interest in our prop markets, especially the touchdown scorer markets," Intertops' Sportsbook Manager said.

25 November 2014, London, UK (Press Release) -- With the NFL preparing for a busy Thanksgiving schedule, Intertops Sportsbook is marking the occasion with a host of different Turkey Day offers for its loyal players, including the chance to pocket free bets.

There is a no-juice line available on game-day when the Detroit Lions host the Chicago Bears in their annual Thanksgiving home game. Jim Caldwell's side is a seven-point favorite to bounce back from the weekend's reverse against New England against a Bears outfit that has lost its last two road games.

The other traditional Thanksgiving hosts, the Dallas Cowboys, left it late this time last year to edge past the Oakland Raiders. This time out they welcome the Philadelphia Eagles in a crunch game at the summit of NFC East, with both teams entering the match-up with an 8-3 record, and the Cowboys are three-point favorites to edge ahead of their divisional rivals.

Whoever wins on Thursday will take a big step towards finishing top of the division, and Intertops is offering an attractive stake-back deal: If either team leads at half-time, but fails to close out the game, a stake-back of up to $100 will be available on losing bets from the '1st Half Spread' market for this duel.

Rounding off the day's action is a battle between two sides struggling to repeat last season's form, as reigning Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks are at risk of falling to third spot in NFC West. They take on a 49ers team that joined them in the playoffs last year, but currently holds an identical 7-4 record and is a one-point favorite, trailing surprise division leader Arizona despite the Cardinals falling to Seattle at the weekend.

The second of Intertops Sportsbook's losing stake-back offers comes in this game. Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick are among the most exciting quarterbacks around, and both know how to get into the endzone themselves. Up to $100 will be refunded on losing "1st Touchdown Scorer" bets for this game if either scores a rushing TD on Thursday.

In addition to all the game-specific offers, Intertops Sportsbook is offering players the chance to win themselves a tasty prize by taking part in a prediction contest on Facebook. Players must correctly post all three NFL Thanksgiving winners on the online sportsbook's Facebook page and wager on the action to be in the draw for more $100 free bets.

Intertops was the first sportsbook to take a sports bet online in 1996, and has been the most trusted site for players around the world ever since. It offers pre-match and live betting on all the biggest sporting events of the year, across a variety of sports including NFL, NBA, tennis and golf.

October 6, 2014 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – The second of two winners of Caribbean Poker Tour satellites hosted by Intertops Poker says no matter how good you are, luck is always a factor in winning a poker tournament. Simon “Sim79” from Quebec, Canada won the final Caribbean Poker Tour satellite tournament hosted by the popular poker room. He and an earlier online tournament winner won $2700 prize packages that will take them to an all-inclusive luxury resort in St Maarten to compete in the Caribbean Poker Tour Main Event.

Both players will share stories, photos and videos of their experience on a personal poker blog, Living the Dream . In his first blog entry today, Simon says he was a little surprised he ended up winning the online tournament.

“I don't think I played my best poker. It started up kinda bad, I lost some good pots that forced me to re-buy (which I don't usually do, but it was definitely worth it that time with such a prize to win). The re-buy helped me double-up and enter the Final Table mid-stacker which is good for such a bad start.”

“I won two draws that paid me a lot at the end that put me right back to 3rd and then 2nd with only 3 players left. I might have overpaid some draws when I was low stacker there was no second prize -- I had to try to hit something. It was do or die.”

“I always say that a bad player can win with luck but that a good player can't win without luck. There’s always a luck factor. A lot of players play more aggressively when they can still re-buy. But this tournament was so fast there wasn't much time to figure my opponents’ playing habits. My advice to tournament players is tighten your play when you have less chips (playing less flop), but play aggressively when you go for it. Don't let yourself go below 8xBB+SB or 8 turns (or 4-5 turns if it's turbo). If you do, spare the most chips you can to maximize your all-in.”

“I play mostly online. When I first played live with friends I was a stone-type player. Playing online has pushed me to fold more on the flop since I’m less attached to my hand. Minimize my investment and maximize my gain. I don't plan on quitting my job or anything. I just have fun. I’m pretty excited to be playing in the Caribbean Poker Tournament! ”

Intertops, popular with players all over the world, is offering a reload bonus up to $500 until this weekend.

The Caribbean Poker Tour Main Event (buy in $1000 + $100) will be played November 1-2, right before the WPT Caribbean Tournament which will also be in St Maarten.

October 1, 2014 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – Two winners of Caribbean Poker Tour satellites hosted by Intertops Poker are preparing for an amazing tournament trip to St Maartens next month. “Grandma Mary” won his $2700 prize package in an online satellite in August. “Sim79” from Quebec, Canada just won his trip last Sunday.

Grandma Mary and Sim79 will be sharing their adventures in the Caribbean by posting stories, pics and videos to a new blog.

“This isn't 2007 anymore. Tournaments are hard now,” Grandma Mary, 30, said in his opening blog post today. “But I think I’ll do well in St Maartens. Playing live the same style that I do online has been successful because people make so many mistakes live. If I could multi table live poker, I’d have a lot more money in my pocket than I do now!”

The Caribbean Poker Tour Main Event (buy in $1000 + $100), November 1-2, will bring poker players from around the world together a few days before the WPT Caribbean Tournament. Schedule of CPT satellites and main events:

Grandma Mary recalls the online tournament where he won the all-inclusive luxury tournament trip: “I didn't play scared. In a top heavy tournament like this you have to be able to make some plays and grind out all the small edges you can. It was up and down for me. A few times I got overly aggressive but I always picked up hands when I needed them.”

“It was when we were three handed and I had a slight chip lead that I realized I might win. I was short stacked coming into the final table so I obviously ran really well.”

He thought his competition at the online satellite tournament was fairly soft.

“Most players were either too nitty or too aggressive. There were a few decent MTT regulars in the tournament but it was a Sunday so I figured most of them were playing lots of tables and probably weren't paying much attention to this one. This allowed me to open a lot more on their blinds and fold some big hands to them as well.”

“One thing I’ve I learned is the biggest thing is to understand bankroll management. Make sure you have a minimum of 100 buy-ins, preferably 200 – 300.”

“The guys who are doing really good at poker are putting in the hours. Michael Jordan didn't become the best basketball player by sitting around, he practiced every day and that's what all poker players need to do too.”

“Poker has always been fun for me. The money is nice, but I love competing. I’d like to win a WSOPC ring event. If things go right, I could see moving to Costa Rica to grind full time.”
