“By offering games from two of the biggest providers of mobile casino software we’re able to offer a much wider selection than most mobile casinos,” said Intertops casino manager. “Even with so many choices available, I have a hunch that classics like Cleopatra’s Gold and Triple Twister will be as popular on cell phones as they have been on desktop computers. Wouldn’t it be great if someone hit the million dollar progressive on Aztec’s Millions on their smartphone or tablet!?”
Players can enjoy mobile casino games using their existing Intertops account. Intertops Casino players will find further information via their mobile device at http://m.intertops.eu/mobile and details of the Intertops Casino Classic mobile games can be found at http://classic.intertops.eu/en/mobile-casino.

“The more you play the more you can win,” said Intertops’ casino manager. “But even if you just play a little Monday to Wednesday you’re eligible for our random draws on Thursdays!”

Held annually in Bavaria, Oktoberfest is the world's largest beer festival. Between mid-September and the first weekend in October, more than 6 million beer drinkers from around the world attend the event in Munich.
Intertops Casino offers hundreds of online casino games from Realtime Gaming (RTG) and adds more new games every month. The latest to make its debut is the new Panda Magic slot, a spellbinding game with a free spins feature where all payouts are doubled. With a well-earned reputation for friendly customer service and easy deposits and withdrawals, Intertops has been entertaining players all over the world for more than two decades.
September 1, 2016 (Press Release) – The NFL season begins next week and one of the most interesting NFL bets is on how the Patriots will fare in their first four games without Tom Brady. To kick off the season, Intertops Sportsbook is offering a deposit bonus up to $100 and a $500 NFL free bet.
Brady was given a four game suspension last spring for the so-called Deflategate controversy.
"Since the Patriots’ star quarterback got suspended for the first four games of the regular season it’ll be interesting to see how they will perform without him," noted an Intertops Sportsbook oddsmaker, “The pressure’s really on their backup QB, Jimmy Garoppolo.”
“We ran a Madden NFL 17 simulation of the Patriots' first four games without suspended quarterback Tom Brady,” wrote Will Brinson, a senior writer at CBS Sports. “New England didn't do very well with Brady suspended and Jimmy Garoppolo starting. Garoppolo himself wasn't terrible, but the Patriots finished 1-3 during their first four games of the season.”
New England Patriots vs Arizona Cardinals is one of 13 games being played Sunday, September 11. Odds on the Patriots first game of the season are currently Patriots +5.5@-110.
The Broncos are also a big question this season now that Peyton Manning has retired. The 2016 NFL season opens September 8th when the Denver Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers. Current odds have the Broncos at +3@-110.
It’s early days yet but oddsmakers favor the Seattle Seahawks (+750) to win the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston next February. The New England Patriots (+800) and Carolina Panthers (+950) are also looking good.
Offering competitive odds on every game and Special Bets every week during the NFL season, Intertops is opening the season with two special bonus offers:
NFL Kickoff Bonus
50% deposit bonus up to $100
Bonus code: NFLSTART50
$500 NFL Free Bet
Players that wager at least $5000 on the NFL Regular Season (minimum odds: -200 / 1.5) will receive a $500 Free Bet at the end of the season.
Intertops is a full-featured online sportsbook offering competitive odds on a wide variety of wagering options on American football and all professional sports including baseball and tennis. Intertops Sportsbook, the world’s first online sportsbook, has had a complete mobile-friendly redesign and now has more wagers and attractive new parlay options than ever before.
The generous offer, which runs from August 10-16, applies to the wide range of Casino games available through the Intertops Poker poker client.
Gamers might associate Intertops Poker with their busy poker room and tournaments, but it also includes a variety of fun casino games that offer great chances to win big. From slots to table games, and video poker to roulette, there is something for everyone.
A maximum of three bets can be made at any one time, and the maximum bonus that can be won is $250, with any remaining free bonus bets voided should a player reach that amount. Players will have one week to play through their free bet bonus.
Intertops Poker continues to give online poker players a chance to win their way to a big-money, live poker tournament in a truly exotic location. Two online satellite series this month will send winners to $500,000 GTD tournaments in the Caribbean: the $500K Punta Cana Poker Classic and the $500K PPC Aruba World Championship.

Lessons Learned from the WSOP! 25 Jul, 2016
1. Have a plan, but be flexible!
I had what I though was a really good plan going in. I had mapped out all the events I wanted to play, totaled it all up and even made a spreadsheet for investors! It was all set up! Until I got there and it basically went out the window! lol While I still played in a decent amount of the events I planned, I changed my game plan on almost a day to day basis. There were simply too many tournaments outside of the WSOP that were softer and clearly a better value. I had not done enough research on other events in town and it caused quite a bit of stress and confusion. I was constantly torn between what I planned and what others were telling me to play. Flip/flopping on what to play will drive you crazy, believe me. (lol) Just figure it out beforehand and Commit. Another big part of this was reentering tourneys after busting. While many, if not all of the tournaments had multiple day ones, I repeatedly fired a second bullet after busting. While there are definitely spots where I think reentering is worth it, I know now that I was just glory chasing and went WAY too hard too early in my trip. By not sticking to my plan of just reentering the next day, I wasted valuable mental energy, relaxation time and of course money.
2. Be Disciplined!
Staying along the same lines as sticking with your plan, being disciplined enough to stay the course throughout the series is vitally important! If I maintained my discipline and didn’t reenter those tourneys, I would have saved myself from a lot of stress. And while I said be flexible, don’t be so flexible that you end up just going with what everyone else is doing. You are there for you and no one else. I need to workout everyday, eat healthy, and get a good nights sleep or I’m off my game. Don’t drink, stay out late, skip workouts or eat crappy food, just cause that’s what everyone else is doing. I fell off my routine multiple times throughout the series, I either was trying to keep up with what everyone else was doing or simply slacked off, and I know it cost me my A game. You don’t want to ignore people’s advice completely, I would have missed out on a lot of opportunities if I did, but make sure you still put yourself first.. Do whatever you need to do to bring your A game everyday, no matter what.
3. Bank roll management!
Your bank roll isn’t big enough! lol Plain and simple, if you think you have enough, double it. I don’t care who’s bank roll strategy you follow, but double it. Some players come out to the WSOP and take every last cent they have to the tables. Its INSANE. Unless you are completely comfortable with losing your entire roll in a few weeks(and I don’t think anyone should be) Don’t be one of these players, be smart! Use the same intelligent financial decisions that got you here in the first place. Yea it’s the World Series of Poker, and you should take your shot, but don’t shoot yourself in the foot and go home broke! Many times throughout the series the loss of money, compounded by a stretch of running bad, caused me to to tilt and knock me off my game. Even if the thoughts are WAY back in my mind, it’s still there enough to start even the best players down a bad path of negativity and self doubt. Save yourself the trouble and make sure you have enough in your roll to not worry. I know it will improve your play at the tables and make the trip much more enjoyable.
4. Pace yourself!
Burn out is waaayy too easy at the WSOP! Six weeks of nonstop poker is sheer craziness! haha I have a new respect for pros that play this every year and honestly, a little bit of pity. The way I and many others went about playing this series is not a way to live, even for 6 weeks! lol Doing nothing else besides playing poker is mentally abusive to ourselves and just not healthy. Being in a casino everyday, while fun for a bit, but gets very old very fast. Dealing with the smoke, the table games, the alcohol and the same degenerate players really takes a toll on you. You need to make sure you are are balanced and not just grinding away the experience! There’s always another tourney! Thats the beauty of it! If you bust out, leave the casino and do something besides poker! Poker (actually another amazing tourney) will be there tomorrow! Also be sure to schedule days off completely. You might not think you need the break, but trust me, you do. I was delusional thinking I could play everyday for 12-15 hour days and be at my best! If I took more time off completely, I know my game would have been better and my bankroll would be fatter lol.
5. Enjoy the Experience!
Remember you’re at the WSOP! Its the biggest and best tournament series of the year! It’s poker heaven! And It’s Vegas! Have fun! Take time to enjoy the process. Poker is supposed to be fun, right?! If it’s not, then what’s the point! You should wake up everyday and smile at the thought you get another shot at poker fame and tons of cash! Appreciate how lucky we are to be able to play a game like this! Soak it all up! Take pictures, meet Pros you’ve only see on TV, watch a final table in the thunderdome, have a fancy meal, see a show, hit the clubs and the pool! I mean, it is Vegas! and the WSOP is a spectacle to say the least! ! lol There’s always something going on, poker related or not! I regret not making more time for all these things and really diving into the whole thing. Unlimited poker isn’t always a good thing. Put the chips down and have some fun somewhere else!
The WSOP goes by way to fast and painfully slow at the same time lol When things are going well it’s over all too quick and when things are going bad, you cannot get on that plane home fast enough lol It’s the part were you have these feelings all in one day that’s hard to describe, but I’m sure most players understand what I mean! lol Hopefully others reading this can learn from my very expensive lessons and not make these same mistakes. And If you’re around for next years WSOP and see me doing any of these things, you have my permission to slap me in the face with a copy of this! lol;)
Run Good, Tim

Vegas Baby!! WSOP! 04 Jul, 2016
I’ve only been to Vegas two times and both were just for an overnight stay while passing through, which was enough to play some small limit cash games lol , but nothing serious. It’s pretty nuts, casinos towers everywhere, giant billboards, and non stop action; In and out of the casinos! People are everywhere at all hours and it seems like the party only stops when you want it to, or you drop from exhaustion! lol So this will be the ultimate test to staying healthy and Fit, to say the least. I’ve surrounded myself with some like minded people and prepared a pretty strict nurtrition and training program, so I feel confident I can handle the challenge. I’m sure there will be some bumps in the road, but being flexible and staying positive will go along way on this brutal grind. I’m also making it a point to stay away from the clubs and casino games as much as possible, cause we all we all know that’s just asking for trouble. lol
We didn’t waste any time after arriving other than to get a quick bite to eat and hit the tables for some small buy in single table sit and go tourneys. Very first hand I get aces! SWEETT, til we get it all in on the flop and the other guy has a set of 6s lol! I didn’t even budge from my seat, cause I knew it was coming and sure enough….BINK ace on the river! lol not a bad way to start off your first WSOP! lol Unfortunately, my luck didn’t run all the way and I came in second. Happy with that part but with the SNGs being winner take all, it was a bummer. We have played a few more since, placing 3rd in two of them, second in another and a 1st place as well. For the Win! lol The 3rd and 2nd places all had deals made at the end to chop in some fashion, so overall profitable. John and I agree there is some really soft play and seems like there’s a lot of easy money to be made in these SNGs if you know what your doing!
BUT These were just the warm ups to the BIG money and we are on our way to try our luck at the insanely massive Colossus tomorrow and if that doesn’t go well we will head on over to Planet Hollywood for their Goliath million guarantee! Wish us luck!!
If you want to keep up with my shenanigans follow me on twitter @TimOK311, Intrgram @2Fit2Fold, my 2fit2fold facebook page and of course Intertops pokers Living the Dream blog! I also have finally put up and run a few streams on Twitch so come find me on there @2fit2fold and maybe you can challenge me live on stream on Intertops! I could use the cash! lol;)

Find your anchor! Staying balanced at the WSOP 04 Jul, 2016
So on that note, I’ve decided to make this more of a mental game and Fitness based post, to remind myself of what’s really important, get back on track, and to save you all from hearing my bad beat stories! lol (well most of them) Now I have to give credit where its due and thank Jason Ferruggia at www.RenegadeStrengthclub.com for the email that formed the basis for this post. In the email he had an incredible quote from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that really stuck with me…
“You always want to protect the thing that allows you to do what you do. In this case, my “thing” to protect is my training. Regardless of what time zone I’m in, or getting pulled in a thousand different directions or how little sleep I’ve gotten – I’ll always find a way to train, get after it and push thru. Training is my anchor – it centers me and allows me to then work a full 12-14 day of business. Find your anchor. Protect your anchor.”
It really spoke to me in this trying time of run bad. The more I read it, the more focused I became. The bad beats disappeared from my mind, the pressure of winning was removed and clear thoughts of just playing my best poker became my only concern. I remembered to focus on the things I can control and not to get upset at the things I cannot control. I remembered tomorrows another day and Poker will always be there. I remembered that for ME; without training, healthy eating and sleeping well, I’m not nearly at my best. One of, if not the biggest reason I started this 2Fit2Fold blog, (as cheesey as I know it sounds) was to keep myself accountable. This is MY Anchor. Training, staying fit and healthy, it keeps me sane. Something I definitely need out here. Its something I think anyone playing this series or any serious poker needs.
Poker is alot of fun and can be very profitable, but it’s way too easy to get your hopes and bankroll crushed. Stay Anchored, stay balanced. What keeps you grounded, in control, and on track towards your goals? Whether you’re out here playing the WSOP, trying to run it up at your local casino or just sitting behind the computer grinding online, figure it out! Then use it to keep yourself from going crazy and broke out here! lol
Let me know what you think in the comments below, love it or hate it! lol I’ll be playing the Planet Hollywood Ultimate Goliath and then the Monster stack event here at the Rio this week. So I’ll have another post for just poker and bad beats soon! lol Follow the action @TimOK311 on Twitter. @ 2fit2fold on instagram and facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/tim.okeefe.75 be sure to like my 2fit2fold page while you’re there!
Thanks for reading! Run Good!
WSOP! The Dream Continues 04 Jul, 2016
While I know being overwhelmed by Vegas affected me, I’ve had a hard time finding any Major mistakes I’ve made while playing? Sure I can pick out some small ones, and clearly there may have been a BETTER play I could have made at times. But when the money went in the middle, I almost always had the best of it. So that makes me feel a little better, but just a little lol. I’ve had JJ get two outted by 77, AQ flop a Queen all in against my AK at least 3 times, a9 turn an Ace vs my 99 and Aces cracked twice deep in two big events! lol Pretty standard bad beat stuff, I know you’ve all been there but they still sting! Here’s one from the Goliath 600k guarantee. With a doubled up 40k stack going into the 5th level, I get a table change and it was all down hill lol. Player first to act raises to 800 at 150/300 blinds with a 100 ante, the short stack just calls(?). I raise to 2700 on the button with AcKh and they both call? Flop comes J 10 3 all clubs. First guy checks UTG, short stack shoves his last 2400( again ?) I call and the other guy folds. Short stack turns over KQ with no club and hits a 9h on the turn, giving him a straight and no club or Queen on the river means I lose lol. I’m not sure why the short stack didn’t just ship all in over the original raise, but I’ve found that I don’t really understand why alot of players here do the things they do lol. I understand that the result would have been the same, as I’m clearly calling his all in there preflop, but at least I would have understood the logic behind his play after. lol Weird plays like that have stood out to me, maybe cause they are happening alot, or maybe cause Im giving some players too much credit, thinking they are good, just to prove me horribly wrong lol
A hand I played particularly well and am proud off (prob just shows, how much a calling station I am lol) was in another Planet Hollywood Goliath event. With a 15k stack at 200/400 blinds with a 50 ante, a super aggressive younger guy who just lost a hand raised from 4th position to 1200. I called from the big blind with 86 suited. Flops Ks 8h 4d and I check, he bets 1300 really quickly and I call. Turns a Qc and he fires 3500 without even thinking. I call river comes the 10d and he almost instantly goes all in for my last 11k when I check. He looks sick after I don’t snap fold. I though for maybe 15 seconds and called it off and he says “your good, I punted”. Then his jaw hits the table when I turn over my hand. lol Went with my gut and I was right, huuraay me. One time in like 100 that works right?! lol This last one from the monster stack is up for debate lol let me know if you would have made this play, or if im just a donkey! I 3 bet squeezed from the button on a very active players raise and a very weak players call. I have Q6 of diamonds. we all have about starting stacks at 15k. He makes it 150, guy calls and i make it 550. Just the original raiser calls and the flop comes Ac Kc 8h. he checks and I bet 1250 (why that much? lol) and he calls. Turn is Qc, and we both check. River is 5c, for a four card flush on the board and he checks again. I bet 2700 and he tanks, eventually calling me with KQ for top two pair? I still don’t know how I feel about either one of our plays in this hand lol so feedback is welcome. Live and learn right?
I’ll stop whining to you now! lol We’ve got roughly two more weeks here with SO many tournaments and cash games to play, so we’ve got plenty of opportunities to write at least a few more winning hands!;) lol If anything this has been a great learning experience, and hopefully It forces me to progress as a player. Lets hope I at least don’t make the same expensive mistakes! lol This weekend has alot of fun lower buy in tourneys that can potentially turn this trip around! Wish me luck!
Run Good and have fun!
