It has become a tournament that poker players put on their travel schedules many months in advance, and the fields grow every year as a result. The Master Classics of Poker 2009 will be held in Amsterdam in early November, with the Main Event beginning on November 10. And Everest Poker has the prize packages that will get you to Amsterdam and into the Main Event.
The way to get started is through the Sit & Go Steps program on Everest. In the sit-n-go section of the website, players can start at any step desired, but to start at the beginning only requires $3 or 750 Summit Points to enter the Step 1 tournaments. A win in that category garners a Step 2 token, which is worth $12 or 3,000 Summit Points to enter at that level. Players can continue to work through the steps to earn more tokens.
Those tokens can be used in various tournaments and promotional events, such as the Master Classics of Poker 2009 promotion. By working up to a Step 6 token - or paying the $1,168 + 45 - players can enter the 10-player sit-n-goes in which one player from each will win a Master Classics prize package.
The package is worth $10,000, which covers the €6,200 Main Event buy-in in Amsterdam at the Master Classics of Poker 2009 as well as all travel and hotel expenses while there. As one of Europe’s premier tourist destinations and known for its beautiful scenery and exciting nightlife, the opportunity to go there AND play in one of Europe’s biggest tournaments is worth the effort.
But there is only about a month left to work your way through the Steps and take your shot at the amazing packages up for grabs. They run through October 26, and the tournament takes place on November 10.
