After months and months of qualifying tournaments, Everest Poker finally found its 204 players who have earned their seats at the 2009 Everest Poker European Cup (EPEC) finals. All players are now preparing to head to the luxurious Chia Laguna Resort on the island of Sardinia from May 8 to May 11, where they will compete for their share of €100,000.
It started in 2008, and through live events held throughout Europe over the ensuing months, players were able to compete in live tournaments for their chance at the big money at the European Cup finals. The process was exciting for those who only had online poker experience, and the travel packages were amazing for everyone who was skilled enough to win one.
Now, the Everest Poker European Cup (EPEC) finals are just around the corner, and there are a total of 204 qualifiers ready to take their seats. It is a record number of qualifying players, and Everest Poker notes that most of them are young. And that makes for an exciting few days in the resort, as poker will share the stage with amazing beaches, restaurants, shops, bars, and nightlife at the Chia Laguna Resort.
Most of the players set to compete are from France, as 54 of the group are French residents. But Poland, Hungary, and Finland are also well-represented and participating for the first time in the European Cup. Everyone will be watching the Swedish players, though, as they have captured the first two EPEC titles and will likely be gunning for a third.
Though qualifiers for the Everest Poker European Cup are now closed, Everest Poker has other promotions running year round to award seats to the most exciting and lucrative poker tournaments across the globe. Specifically, the World Series of Poker qualifiers are running now, along with numerous other opportunities to win prize packages to various events.
