Rikard Aberg is in Velden, Austria for the European Poker Championships (Poker EM) this week. He’ll be with Akash Mazumdar who will be playing in the Main Event. Akash won his way to Austria by winning an online satellite tournament at Intertops Poker. Here’s an overview from Rikard about what to expect from the tournament.
A couple of weeks ago, Rikard interviewed Akash from his home in Washington, DC. This is the second time that Akash has won his way to a big overseas poker tournament by winning a satellite at Intertops Poker. When he won his way to the TKPT in St Maarten a couple of years ago, he went on to win the Main Event! (Click here to see our videos from that event.)
