Successful EPT for new “Expekt Pro Team”

Monday, February 6th, 2012

The Expekt Pro Team launched last week at the EPT Deauville and a great week was had all by all, culminating in two players making a deep run and cashing.

Team Captain, Scotty Nguyen, was unlucky to bust on day 2, but the Expekt.com ambassador could cheer on two of his new teammates right up until day four.

 

“It was an awesome experience to meet Scotty, he is so much fun”, said Julian Kabitzke, who ended 45th of 947 players, cashing for €15,000.

 

German Julian Kabiztke (pictured) was joined in Deauville by fellow Expekt players Bernhard Mössner, Andre Klebanov and Jack Salter. Plus long-time Expekt.com poker ambassador Scotty Nguyen of course.

 

Bernhard Mossner was very unlucky to exit in 20th place getting all-in with aces pre-flop against tens only for a ten on the river to end his hopes. Bernhard was obviously disappointed with the final hand but had a great week in Deauville including meeting Scotty and is looking forward to the next Expekt tournament.

 

Julian Kabitzke went out in 45th losing a huge pot with Ace King versus Kings and Tens. If only an ace hit the flop he would have been almost chip leader.

 

“Unfortunately I didn’t reach the final table as it looked so promising, but I enjoyed playing the tournament with other players from Expekt.com and to meet Scotty was just incredible. He is so much fun and nice guy!”, said Julian Kabitzke.

 

So a promising start from the new Expekt Pro Team and with more events lined up it looks be a bright future. Check the Expekt Promotions page soon to find out how you can become part of the team.

Scotty Nguyen, and his Expekt Poker prospects, aim for glory in EPT Deauville!

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

To team up with world champion Scotty Nguyen for a live tournament is something of a dream for many poker players, but Expekt player Julian Kabitzke from Germany knows all about it now.

Scotty is really a legend and a he is such a character, it is very special to play together with him, Kabitzke said.

 

Scotty Nguyen has entered Europe again and after a day in France he has already signed more autographs and has had more photographs taken than most of the close to 1,000 players will collect together over the next few days in this year’s EPT in Deauville.

 

In Deauville, a hot-shot coastal resort two hours from Paris, the winter has taken its firm grip, and the jet-setters that flock the streets during summer are nowhere to be seen.

 

But the buzz is alive and kicking around the Casino Barriere where Scotty and his prospects from Expekt.com will battle it out on the poker tables from day 1B on Wednesday.

 

Around €4 million will be in the pot. Can anyone of the Expekt players be up there next to Scotty challenging for a place in the final table?

 

Scotty, with five WSOP bracelets and over $11,000,000 in total career earnings, says:

 

These players have talent above the ordinary, I will do all my best to support them during the tournament, the Las Vegas poker daddy says, while watching his four young team members in the tournament while they try to sort their clothes and hair before the photo-shoot at the casino.

 

If they can copy some of Scotty’s success in the live poker world they will get used to the attention.

 

Julian Kabitzke, the 22 year old from Chemnitz in eastern Germany, is one of the young, hot prospects in the online poker world. He is a high-raking player at Expekt.com and showed glimpses of what is to come in live poker when he won The One tournament in Monte Carlo last year, cashing €300,000 for the title

 

Jack Salter, two years older than Kabitzke and living in London, is another of Scotty Nguyen’s prospects with charisma and that young slugger attitude that he hopes will bring him success in the live world poker world.

 

One of my goals in 2012 is to win a major live tournament and if it happens here it would be fantastic but I know it is really tough on the live circuit and a lot is about preparation and patience, says Jack.

 

Bernhard Mössner, from Austria, and Andre Klebanov also teams up with Scotty in Deauville. Klebanov, 22, has already tasted success in EPT when he came 3rd in London in October last year.

 

While Scotty Nguyen smiles he gives his followers at Expekt.com a final advice:

 

The most important thing on the first day of a main event is to read the opponents and the table. Stay calm and don’t rush into things. Then you will be eaten. Find the easy targets on the table and you can build your stack for the coming days baby.

 

So shuffle up and deal. Let us see if the prospects at Expekt.com take Scotty’s advice up.

Name: Julian Kabitzke
Age: 22
Lives in: Chemnitz, Germany

‘WViking’ to represent Expekt in Vegas for the second year running

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Norwegian Magnus Skumsnes, known as WViking on the tables, is making a nice habit of representing Expekt Poker in Las Vegas.

 

Last summer he won a place in the “Scotty Boot Camp” and in the 2011 WSOP he will play both the main event and a side event as an Expekt player.

 

“It really feels like a dream come through, and make no mistake, I have ambitions on the poker tables in Vegas and am not just travelling as a tourist”, a delighted Magnus told Expekt Poker.

 

Expekt will have two players in the main event. Magnus will play in the a side event on 5th July ($1,500 NLHE) and the $10k main event starting on day 1D (10th July).

 

He won this package worth over $16,000 by finishing 2nd in our WSOP Warrior promotion showing great consistency by gaining 152 points. He has been an Expekt player since 2006. You can follow his progress right in an online diary.

 

The second representative will Lukas Soucek (Suk12) from the Czech Republic. He qualified via a Super Satellite on Expekt on 30th May winning a Main Event package worth $13,000.

 

He is also a longstanding Expekt player having played on the site since 2008 and will start the tournament on Day 1D.

 

Lukas told Expekt Poker:

 

“It feels really good to have won the prize because I really wanted to go to the WSOP this year. It is my first time to Vegas as well so I can’t wait to get underway. I have played in a number of small tournaments but this is my first experience of a big tournament,” he added.

 

Magnus will also play his first main event but not in Vegas thanks to the “Scotty Boot Camp”. This was a promotion where a number of players got the chance to meet Scotty Nguyen and learn the tricks of the trade from the Expekt ambassador before they played in a side event.

 

“The experience in Scotty Boot Camp was just amazing with the poker lessons from Scotty and the hospitality around it. So it feels quite amazing to go there again as an Expekt player and this time play the main event too.”

 

What will the tactics be?

 

“I will be patient and wait for my chances. I have ambitions and will not just be there as a tourist. I play around 30 hours a week online at Expekt and hope to bring some of what I have learned to the live poker scene now,” said Magnus.

 

Lukas is also counting down to the main event

 

He said: “I am looking to build and collect some good experience in Vegas which will hopefully help me in the future.”

 

“One of my big strengths is my ability to read other players but it will be very difficult at this tournament because there will be lots of pros hungry for success.”
