Learn some tournament tips and tricks from five poker champions who attended the Caribbean Poker Tour (CPT).
During the summer and fall, poker players were trying their best to earn a place for the CPT Punta Cana. The top five players of Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Poker were chosen on online satellite tournaments. They received a USD 4,000 prize package from the renowned US poker rooms that took them to the CPT main event.
A varied group of online poker champions
The group was finalized in September and it turned out to be pretty diverse:
Daniel Montagnolli, 32, Austrian poker professional
In September, Daniel quit his job to become a poker player.
Neil Slade, 44, British poker player and builder
Father of two who identifies as a recreational poker player.
Derek Scallon, 32, American poker professional and film producer
The producer of ‘Bet Rise Fold – The Story of Online Poker’
Steven Loney, toy business entrepreneur
He plays poker for fun, but that didn’t stop him to win a seat at the CPT.
Phil Cardella, 29, American poker player and CAD designer
He hasn’t played live tournaments before.
Impressions and tips from the five poker champions
The poker champions’ trip to Punta Cana was chronicled by Larry Colcy, a well-known blogger. The trip produced 5 intriguing videos that provide a rare glimpse to the world of professional poker. In the first episode, the organizer of CPT Punta Cana, Leon Groenewoud discusses the poker player’s chances at the event.
The second, rather uneventful video stars Steven Loney, sharing his first impressions of the Dominican Republic and the Hard Rock Casino. In the third interview, the players talk about altering their playing style and “give a tip or two on how to come out on top.” In the following episode Steven and Daniel recall their first day and how they made it to day two. Lastly, in the fifth video we come to know the final results of the Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Poker champions.
