Everest Poker is set to give away over $125k in the next two months and it all begins on Monday.

The online poker site is launching its first direct qualifier to 2011 Everest Poker International Cup on Aug. 1 at 20:00 GMT.

The qualifier will not only award 10 seats to the live tournament but also $25,000 in extra cash.

There are five daily qualifiers that feed into the tournament on Monday but you can also buy-in directly for 25,000 Summit Points.

Billed as the first amateur cup envied by the pros, the Everest Poker International Cup (also known as EPIC) is set to take place in Alicante, Spain, from Sept. 9-10, 2011.

Limited to just 50 entrants, the 2011 EPIC event will offer a $75,000 guaranteed prize pool. The site advertises a soft field considering most players qualify for free.

Just in case you miss out on the action on Monday, there is still one more direct qualifier that will take place Aug. 29. Once again 10 EPIC seats and $25,000 in free cash will be up for grabs.

Everest Poker is also running a special promotion for new players on the site. If you just signed-up for the site you’ll have the chance to play the EPIC Rookie Satellites, which take place every day and feed into the EPIC direct qualifier.

This is the fifth time the EPIC event has taken place with previous versions going down in places such as Sardinia, Vilamoura and Gran Canaria.
