The TK Poker Tour is one of the friendliest events on the live poker circuit, and you can be there in March courtesy of Intertops Poker´s latest promotion.
Players at Intertops Poker have the opportunity this week to forget about the grim February weather and look forward to a Caribbean break at the end of March. That is when the TK Poker Tour will be hosting its next event on the stunning island of Sint Maarten.
The TK Poker Tour is the brainchild of Thomas Kremser – an experienced Tournament Director, who has previously organized successful live poker events for Party Poker, Unibet and WPT. This will be the third time his company has hosted an event on Sint Maarten, and each time it has got better.
This year´s event runs from March 16th to March 25th. It features eleven tournaments – including a $1,150 buy-in Main Event that has a minimum guaranteed prize pool of $75,000 – satellites to the feature events and cash games running fifteen hours a day at the Casino Royale.
How to Win a Package to the TK Poker Tour
The $3,500 package being offered by Intertops Poker consists of the buy-in for the TKPT Main Event, accommodation at the all-inclusive Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and a contribution towards travel expenses. The package will be awarded to the winner of a special “final” tournament being played next Sunday February 5th at 5:00pm (EST).
The “final” tournament has a buy-in of $110.00, which Intertops Poker acknowledges is beyond the bankroll of some players on the site. So, in order to give everybody a chance of winning a package to the TK Poker Tour, Intertops Poker is hosting a Steps satellite program and a Wild West Shootout Satellite just before the start of the final tournament.
The Steps satellite program starts with buy-ins of $3.30 and Level 1 games are played at 2:00am, 8:00am, 2:00pm and 8:00pm (all times EST). Each Level 1 game awards at least one seat in a Level 2 game – the Level 2 games taking place at 6:00pm each evening this week until Saturday. Player who wish to skip the Level 1 games can buy-in directly to the Level 2 games for $11.00.
The Level 2 games guaranteed one seat into Sunday´s TKPT final tournament for each $110.00 in the prize pool. If you fail to win a seat in the TKPT final tournament via the Steps satellite program, you can also chance your luck in the Wild West Shootout on Sunday at 1:00pm. This last-minute satellite has a buy-in of just $1.10, and guarantees one seat in the target event.
Well Worth Having a Go at this Promotion
The TK Poker Tour has been described as
a well-organized event that attracts a mix of professional, semi-professional and amateur players. In addition to the Main Event, there are plenty of opportunities to win cash in between lazing on the beach or soaking up the many attractions in Sint Maarten. Last year´s Intertops qualifier Tim O´Keefe said:
It’s great to be able to hit the beach in the afternoon before a night of poker. Don’t be distracted by the tropical setting though – there’s some serious money to be made! Last year I did quite well playing some of the smaller tournaments before the Main Event.
