Sugarloaf to Everest: $4m GTD in New PokerStars Mountain Series
Winning a poker tournament does really feel a bit like scaling a mountain.
A long, slow slog to base camp. Quick, intense climbs up to higher camps.
Acclimating to the intense pressure of the high-altitude near the top. And the final, satisfying push to plant your flag at the apex of the towering obstacle you conquered.
Next week, from April 7-10, you can push for 10 of those potentially satisfying climbs in PokerStars' new Mountain-themed poker series.
With over $4m guaranteed over the series you can start with the low buy-in $11 Sugarloaf and work your way up to the $2,100 Mount Everest Main Event.
It's not quite the same as bagging an 8,000m peak, but the adrenaline rush for your bankroll might fill the void.
$1.5M Everest Awaits
PokerStars first-ever Mountain series begins on April 7 at 2 PM with the $11 Sugarloaf event with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The $33 Snaefell NLHE follows at 4 PM the same day, also with a $100k prize pool.
Mt. Olympus and Mt. Fuji are next on April 8, with $55 and $109 buy-ins, respectively.
Once those peaks are scaled the buy-ins and prize pools begin to escalate quickly with the $150k GTD Matterhorn on April 9, the $350k GTD Mont Blanc and the $500k Elbrus.
The monster peaks await on April 10 with the biggest buy-ins and biggest money on the table. Kilimanjaro is first with a $700 buy-in and $750k GTD, Denali offers the PLO peak with a $1,050 buy-in and $500 GTD and the $1.5M Mount Everest Main Event finishes things off.
If you can't swing the $2,100 buy-in for the main event, low-stakes satellites are running now.
