The Everest Poker-sponsored German Poker Tour only just ended and yet the busy poker room has already announced its sponsorship of the 2005-2006 French Poker Tour, a series of land-based and Internet tournaments culminating in a championship event.
The 20,000 Euro freeroll Championship will take place in January 2006 at the prestigious Aviation Club de France in Paris. Interested players can qualify for the final event through live poker tournaments, which are being held at 15 local poker venues across the country, as well as online at Everest Poker. Tournament winners will be awarded with a seat to the championship.
The first event was already played out in Colombes on October 9 with a field of 115 players. Upcoming events are scheduled to take place in Tours, Lyon, Marne La Vallee, and Strasbourg, among other locations, and are expected to draw similar fields.
Online qualifying freeroll tournaments will take place at Everest Poker on October 22, November 5, November 19, December 3, and December 17. The winner of each freeroll will win a seat to the championship. In addition, players with the most hands played at ring games in each of October, November, and December will win a seat to the Paris final.
