Montreal, QC (PRWEB) April 13, 2007
Everest Poker (http://www.everestpoker.com) today formally announced the formation of Equipo Everest, the online poker room's first professional poker team. This team will represent Spain in national and international poker tournaments across Europe, playing in events such as the European Poker Tour, the Irish Open, the World Heads of Poker, and others. The new group's first outing was at the Spanish Poker Championship in Valladolid, Spain on 24th March, followed up by an appearance at the European Poker Tour event in Monte Carlo on the 25th.
Equipo Everest consists of four professionals: Francisco "Pakito" Lopez, Guillermo "DJ Guil" Gonzalez, Santiago "TheCatalan" Torres, and Maria "May!" Maceiras. These four dedicated Everest Poker players went through an arduous selection process and were chosen because of their dedication to the poker room as well as their playing abilities.
"The principal objective in creating our team was to come up with a group that best represents the philosophy of Everest Poker and bring that image to international poker tournaments," said Rocío Castillo, Marketing Manager of Everest Poker in Spain.
Everest Poker has created a website at http://www.equipoeverest.com that allows players to follow the new team. Equipo Everest will offer advice to their fellow players on this site. EquipoEverest.com will also provide live coverage of the poker tournaments the team participates in as well as personal blogs and a forum that allows the Everest Poker community to share poker news and tips.
In addition to the Equipo Everest site, Everest Poker has begun a series of poker tournaments where the poker room's players can join in games with the new team. Games take place every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 21:00.
