Nearly 400 players showed up to play in the European Poker Tour (EPT) Dublin event at the end of October, and among them were three players sent by Everest Poker.
The players earned their seats at the EPT Season 3 event through the Everest Poker direct entry satellite tournaments. The site has been offering the satellites for more than a year and they run for several weeks prior to each EPT event.
The three players who won seats in the Dublin event had the €5,000 buy-in paid for as well as money for travel and accommodations. One player turned that into a pretty good showing at the Texas Hold'em Tournament.
Julien Grosjean, who joined Everest Poker earlier this year, turned his prize package into a 63rd place finish out of the 389 players that entered. This was his first trip to Dublin as well as his first live poker tournament.
Grosjean has consistently finished in the money in Everest Poker's online tournaments, and in addition to his EPT prize win, he's also qualified to compete in the $100,000 guaranteed poker tournament taking place Dec. 2.
Next up on the EPT will be the Scandinavian Open in Copenhagen, Denmark, Jan. 17-20. The direct buy-in satellite for the event at Everest Poker will take place Dec. 16 with a $300 + $20 buy-in.
The site also offers Winner's Choice satellites every Wednesday through Dec. 13 where the winner will be able to choose which EPT event they want to attend.
