Everest Poker has launched its first ever pro team. Four professional Spanish poker players will represent the site in poker tournaments across Europe.
Rocío Castillo, marketing manager of Everest Poker in Spain has great hopes for the team, which has been named Equipo Everest.
"The principal objective in creating our team was to come up with a group that best represents the philosophy of Everest Poker and bring that image to international poker tournaments," said Rocio Castillo.
The four pros, Francisco "Pakito" Lopez, Guillermo "DJ Guil" Gonzalez, Santiago "TheCatalan" Torres, and Maria "May!" Maceiras, have already made their first two appearances in the Spanish Open and the European Poker Tour (EPT) final in Monte Carlo.
Everest Poker has created a special Web site where people can follow the new team. Live coverage from the events the team plays in will be provided on the site.
In addition to the Equipo Everest site, Everest Poker has begun a series of poker tournaments where the poker room's players can join in games with the new team. Games take place every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 9 p.m.
