"I wish I could say I took home the title in Velden, but the experience itself was a win for sure," recalls O'Keefe. "We all made day two, which is always tough and a plus for any poker player. The big buy-in and long structure always bring around the better players, so just making it that far was quite an accomplishment. I was a bit jealous the others hit the beach without me but I can't complain too much since I was playing for a chance at $142K and the trophy!"
Tim was eliminated early on Day 3 but Emil went out in 6th place. He was disappointed it wasn't a win, but the $26k in his pocket made him feel better very quickly!
"The idea of scooping a win for insane amounts of money for only a cheap satellite entry online is living the dream to be sure!" said O'Keefe from his home in Texas. Â "Not only do Intertops and Juicy Stakes pick great tournaments in great spots, they over deliver on taking care of their players."
