Everest E-Report: Climb the WSOP Steps at Everest

Share this
It’s March. The World Series of Poker begins in May. The WSOP main event starts on July 3. Only a few months remain, and while that may seem like enough time to score a WSOP seat, wouldn’t you rather have it locked up now?

Last year, Everest Poker sent 130 players to Las Vegas, Nevada to play in the $10K main event after having awarded them prize packages that took care of their accommodations and travel expenses. In addition, they had a luxurious players’ suite set up at the Rio, just down the hall from the Amazon Room where the tournaments took place, complete with refreshments, room for relaxation, and poker specialists to help the players with various aspects of their game. It was a grand set-up, and there is no doubt that the 2009 WSOP will provide the same ultimate player experience.

Everest Poker knows that the WSOP is fast approaching, and there are numerous $13,000 WSOP main event prize packages waiting to be awarded to Everest players. And all it takes is $3 or 750 Summit Points to get started.

The WSOP Steps program has been established to allow players to buy in at the level of their choosing and work their way through six steps to win a main event seat. There are also prize packages to be earned for Event 54 at this year’s WSOP, which is the final $1,500 no-limit hold’em event prior to the $10K championship.

To start at Step 1, all a player needs is $3 or 750 Summit Points to enter the tournament. Finish first or second and move on to receive a token that allows a seat into a Step 2 tournament. A third place finish allows the player to reenter a Step 1 tournament at no additional cost.

Players can buy in to any step. For example, an entry directly into a Step 2 tournament costs $12 or 3,000 Summit Points. An entry into Step 3 is priced at $40 or 10,000 Summit Points, and Step 4 will cost $134 or 33,500 Summit Points. Winning a Step 4 tournament gets the player a seat into that WSOP $1,500 event or a seat into a Step 5 satellite, the latter of which can also be purchased for $503 or 125,750 Summit Points. And direct entry to a Step 6 tournament will cost $1,728 or 432,000 Summit Points.

The champion of each Step 6 tournament wins a $13,000 prize package to the WSOP main event, though other finishers are not left out in the cold. Second place wins $1,500 cash, third wins $1,000, and fourth and fifth places each receive $500.

We think the point is clear. The WSOP Steps program is set up for players with any size bankroll and any level of play. And the prizes are plentiful, whether it ends in cash or a summer trip to Las Vegas to compete in the most prestigious tournament in the world.

It’s time to get started. Download Everest Poker now, and when setting up your real money account, use the bonus code “PNEWS200” to earn a $200 bonus through your regular play.

Go to the Sit & Go section from the Everest Poker website lobby, then click on the WSOP tab to find out when you can get started. Technically, there are only three months until the promotion ends in the beginning of June, so there is no time to waste.

Also, by using the aforementioned bonus code (“PNEWS200”) when setting up your new account, you’ll be automatically qualified for a $500 cash freeroll! Every Saturday in 2009, players who sign up for an Everest Poker account through PokerWorks need only collect 10 Summit Points through regular site play, at which point they can play in any of the weekly freerolls. And winning money in a freeroll only means more opportunities to play the WSOP Steps and get to the WSOP!
