A new online poker tournament festival called the Soft Poker Series II with $28,250 in guaranteed prize money will be held at Intertops Poker from June 10-16.
Designed for Intertops Poker’s sportsbook bettors and recreational poker players, the Soft Poker Series II consists of 21 events at a wide variety of very affordable buy-ins. Included among the tournaments are two $500 GTD freerolls that anyone can enter.
The top prize within the $28,250 of guaranteed prize money up for grabs is a $6,500 package to the EPC Velden in Austria next month. That prize package includes the €2,700 Main Event entry fee, $500 for expenses, and five nights for two at a luxurious hotel.
The $6,500 EPC Velden package winner will be crowned in Event #21 – the final tournament of the series – that kicks off on Sunday, June 16 at 6:30 p.m. ET. It’s being called the Champions Tournament and is definitely a must-play event.
While the Champions Tournament has a somewhat hefty buy-in of $300 + $30, the good news is that all 20 events played prior to Event #21 each guarantee one ticket to the Champions Tournament. That includes the two $500 GTD freerolls that are Events #1 and #2 on the Soft Poker Series II schedule. Both freerolls are set for June 10.
