The final list of players will represent Everest Poker at all the major events in world poker for the next year, and will be financed with packages worth $100 000 each.
Selected from countries across Europe, the team members are:
- Fernando Festas (Portugal)
- Daan Slutter (Netherlands)
- Otto Richard (France)
- Voitto Rintala (Finland)
- Simone Coppari (Italy)
- Ghaoudi Machou (France)

- Romain Despres (France)
- Pablo Martinez (Spain)
- Wooka Kim (Japan)
Two hundred Everest Poker players travelled to Vienna hoping to become one of the chosen ten, and last Saturday night saw twenty finalists heading to the grand finale. The final twenty were given a surprise $3 500 package to play at the 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) where Everest Poker was recently signed as the official felt sponsor.
