Twenty swim to top of Everest Poker Avalanche

The "real fun" isn't even supposed to be happening yet. But 20 happy Everest Poker players might disagree, as they've already banked $5,300 and a seat in the Avalanche online finale for a shot at $1 million guaranteed.

A nine-month cavalcade of live and online poker, the Everest Poker Avalanche has a three-round structure that allows for players at all levels.

Round 1 satellites are for the low-budget among us, with buy-ins of just $3+30¢ or $11+$1. Round 2 satellites up the stakes for players more confident in their ability and bankroll, with a buy-in of $56+$5.

Once you hit Round 3, the buy-in jumps dramatically to $530+$30, but so to does the reward. The top twenty in each Round 3 satellite take home a whack of cash and, more importantly, a spot in the big Avalanche finale on Sept. 17 for $1 million guaranteed.

Twenty more Everest Poker players are sitting pretty today, as the poker room has announced the latest winners of $5,300 and a prized Avalanche finale seat from the most recent Round 3 event Feb. 24.

Here's the list:

  • franpat from France
  • henry850 from France
  • Pacino06 from France
  • cobinus from France
  • droopy from France
  • Homer_S. from Germany
  • Jokey5000 from Germany
  • Zoupette from France
  • ghemon73 from Italy
  • adosso from Italy
  • pharus from The Netherlands
  • CABJ from Spain
  • Maxilata from Spain
  • IntruitionNEW from Norway
  • gitan75 from France
  • S.U.S. from Germany
  • WALDI49@ from Germany
  • xokolate from Iberia
  • duke 007 from Germany

The fun is just beginning for them, though, according to Jonathan May, Everest Poker's Property Manager.

"After the online finale is finished, the real fun begins," May says. "The final 10 players from the last online event are going to each win a trip to play Hold'em poker at a live final table at an undisclosed location."

For players with big bankrolls that want to skip right to the top, buy-in for the Avalanche Finale is also available for $5,000+$300.
