Everest E-Report: Spanish Poker Tour Started, More Satellites Await

Share this
The much-anticipated second season of the Spanish Poker Tour has kicked off, and the first event is now in the history books, complete with a new champion in Miguel Angel Rodriguez. With Everest Poker signed on as the sponsor of the tour, attendance was high and the new season of the SPT launched a series of tournaments that will run throughout 2009.

The Gran Casino Aranjuez in Madrid was the first stop on the tour, and Everest Poker players were out in force. Not only were names like Everest-sponsored players like Voitto Rintala and Maria Maceiras in the field, but 2008 WSOP Europe champion Annette Obrestad joined in the excitement, along with former EPT Warsaw champion Joao Barbosa. And with Everest giving players chances to qualify online for seats or buy in to the tournaments with Summit Points, many were able to play in their first major live tournament with some of the most notable Europeans in the game.

One of those Everest Poker qualifiers, Claus Wendt, made it all the way to the final table of the main event and finally finished in fifth place. Ultimately, while Alexander zur Linden from Germany was winning the side event, Miguel Angel Rodriguez was beating Jorge Gonzalez in the main event to take the title and €38,000.

The next stop on the tour is only days away, as the Spanish Poker Tour travels to the Casino Aljarfe in Sevilla, Spain, for the tournament scheduled to start on April 2. But many more stops remain for which players have ample time to qualify! The remainder of the schedule is as follows:

May 14 - 17        Gran Casino Aranjuez, Madrid
June 11 - 14        Gran Casino de Castellon, Castellon
September 10 - 13    Casino Vilamoura, Portugal
October 15 - 18        Casino Monte Picayo, Valencia
November 12 - 15    To Be Announced
December 14 - 20    Gran Casino Costa Meloneras, Gran Canaria
                (Grand Finale - €3,200 buy-in)

All of the events leading up to the Grand Finale consist of €1,100 buy-ins.

Don’t have a bankroll to support those buy-ins? That is where the sponsor site for the Spanish Poker Tour comes in. Download Everest Poker now and begin the qualifying process. But upon signing up for that first account, use the bonus code “PNEWS200” to earn a $200 bonus through that site play and qualify to play in weekly $500 freerolls on the site. That is certainly one way to build a bankroll to support some Spanish Poker Tour satellites!

As far as those qualifiers go, there are several opportunities each day to qualify for as little as $3 + $.30 for the rebuy events and $11 + $1 for the super turbo satellites. And every Tuesday presents the opportunity for $100 + $9 direct entry satellites, from which at least five players will win a SPT prize package that includes the tournament buy-in, associated fee, accommodations, and travel expenses to and from the venue in Spain.

And through regular site play that allows players to accumulate Summit Points, players are allowed to cash those in for a seat into any upcoming SPT event.

With the Spanish Poker Tour already in action for the season, it is time to kick off your own journey and qualify for your seat. Hundreds of thousands of Euros will be on the line during the SPT Season 2, and those tournaments are just waiting for you.
