Everest Poker announces new batch of winners

Mount Everest

Last weekend saw more players winning big in the $100k guaranteed tournament. Fifteen more players also qualified for the Avalanche, making for a lot of happy players at the poker site.

One of the happy faces was Aurora9 from Sweden who took the top spot of the $100k guaranteed to win $221,000. Aurora9 had to wade through a field of 745 players to earn that win.

"These $100,000 events are a cornerstone of Everest Poker's schedule," said Jonathan May, Everest Poker property manager. "Since we've started them, our best players now regularly make an appearance to try to get their share."

The Aug. 26 tournament saw players from all around the world including countries in Europe, South America and Asia.

The winner may have been from Sweden, but the top 10 players were mostly from France and the Netherlands, with a few other countries thrown in.

"France and the Netherlands continue to create great poker players," May said. "But we've seen some really strong new members coming in from Japan and Chile, so they may want to look out!"
