Montreal, QC (PRWeb) January 5, 2007 -- Everest Poker announced that it was sending some of its online holdem poker players to the forthcoming European Poker Tour French Open event to be held on 21-24 February, 2007 at the world-famous Deauville Casino in Deauville, France. Everest Poker has previously sent players to European Poker Tour events in locations as diverse as Barcelona, London, Dublin, and Baden. The EPT French Open is the last stop on the tour prior to the Grand Final in Monte Carlo.
"We've created a $7,500 prize package that includes a seat in the EPT French Open plus cash for travel expenses and lodging," said Jonathan May, Everest Poker property manager. "We're dedicated to making sure our players have a great time at all of the live tournaments, and for something like the European Poker Tour, we pull out all the stops."
To qualify for the European Poker Tour French Open, players will need to enter the French Open online tournament to be held at 14:00GMT on 20 January, 2007. Players can buy-in to the tournament directly at $200+15 or through a satellite tournament held by the poker room. "We're going to be running a range of satellites with buy-ins as low as $5, and as always you can use your Summit Points and Tournament Tokens to buy in."
