Everest Poker has announced the location for its Everest Poker Avalanche, a poker tournament with a $1,000,000 guarantee. The final table will be played aboard a cruise liner in the Mediterranean.
The Everest Poker Avalanche began months ago, with online qualifiers starting at $3+30¢, and now we are getting close to the final.
The No-Limit Hold'em tournament has a three-round structure, with different buy-ins on each level. The qualifiers will play in an online final Sept. 15 and play down to the final 10.
The 10 final players will win a free trip to board a cruise ship in Athens, Greece, together with their guests and cruise to Turkey, with stops on islands such as Rhodes and Mykonos on the way.
The final table will be played at the casino onboard. The players will compete for a total prize pool of at least $1,000,000 and the winner is guaranteed $200,000.
"We really wanted to make the last round of the game special, and this certainly fits the bill," said Jonathan May, Everest Poker's property manager. "I can't imagine a better way to finish a long tournament like this."
Qualifiers will be held at Everest Poker all the way up to the final on Sept. 15.
