Intertops Poker has released the dates and schedule for its second SOFT Poker Series, plus details of a potentially very lucrative Champions Tournament.
Last November, Intertops Poker hosted its first ever SOFT Poker Series – a modest series of twenty low buy-in tournaments scheduled over a week. Due to the success of the inaugural series, the site has decided to run a second series with slightly lower buy-ins than before, while maintaining the same level of prize pool guarantees. The series will run from Monday 10th June to Sunday 16th June.
Similar to the first series, SOFT Poker Series II concludes with a Champions Event in which one player will win a live tournament package. Whereas last year´s “Champion of Champions” won a package to the WSOPC Caribbean, this year´s Champion will be headed to the European Poker Championships in Velden, Austria, where the $750,000 Main Event takes place between 24th and 27th July.
Every winner of the preceding twenty tournaments in the SOFT Poker Series II – even the freeroll tournaments – will be awarded a seat in the Champions Event in addition to their cash prize for winning the tournament. The Champions Event can also be bought into directly for $330.00 – a price point higher than normal for a live package qualifier that should dissuade “non-Champions” from taking part.
The Schedule for SOFT Poker Series II
Eagle-eyed visitors to USAFriendlyPokerSites.com might see there are twenty-one events in this second version of the SOFT Poker Series compared to last November´s twenty events. The additional tournament is Event #3 – the only paid-for tournament on the opening day of the series. Last November, the opening day´s action consisted of just the two freeroll events.

The winner of the penultimate event will likely be hoping it wraps up in good time to take their seat in the Champions Tournament. Unfortunately if you win a seat in the Champions Tournament, it is a must-play event. There are no cash exchanges or tournament dollars available for players unable to play in the final of the SOFT Poker Series II; and, if you are unable to take your seat, you will forfeit your entry.
Because some players will be unable to play in the Champions tournament, and because others may not want to because they have no intention of traveling to Austria if they win it, the actual field for the final tournament of the Soft Poker Series II could be very “soft” indeed. Consequently, the Champions event represents an excellent opportunity for players who would like to win a package to a live poker event.
Special Incentive to Reload Accounts this Week
In addition to releasing details for SOFT Poker Series II, Intertops has also announced a special slots promotion for players reloading their accounts.
