March 31, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — $1 Million is up for grabs.

Everest Poker, official sponsor of the World Series of Poker 2010, once again makes the biggest poker show on Earth even sweeter for its qualifiers with the “$1 Million Match”  promotion.  When you qualify for the WSOP with Everest Poker, you don’t need to make it into the money to fly home as a winner! Everest Poker will match the combined winnings of all its qualified players at the WSOP up to a one million dollars. This money will then be shared equally among all Everest qualifiers, no matter how they finished.

Quite simply, all Everest Poker qualifiers are automatically eligible for their share of $1 Million.

Last year, Antoine Saout, a 25-year old French player from Brittany, France, qualified online with Everest Poker for the WSOP Main Event. He played the tournament of his life, making the November Nine and finishing 3rd, cashing approximately $3.5 Million.

It was not just great for Antoine, but also for the 51 other  players who also qualified online at Everest. The  full $1 Million Match was met and everyone shared a piece of it — $19,607 per player!

As a result, all Everest Poker qualifiers played the WSOP Main Event for free while also taking home additional cash. The $1 Million Match extended more than financial benefits. Throughout the tournament, Everest Poker players supported each other as a true team at the world’s biggest live poker event .

Smart players have more than one reason to qualify with Everest Poker for the 2010 WSOP. This year Everest Poker will extend the $1 Million Match to also include all Everest qualifiers of WSOP Side Event #54 and their winnings.  In addition, all players will receive Everest Poker’s exclusive WSOP prize package, including round-trip airfare to Las Vegas and the full Everest VIP treatment — exclusive parties, unlimited access to Everest Poker’s luxury players’ lounge, and assistance from our  team of experienced PR professionals to maximize the player’s visibility among the international poker media.

Qualification for the 2010 World Series of Poker® has begun at Everest Poker. Direct Entries for both the Main Event and Side Event #54 run twice a week through June 16. Players may satellite in for as little as $2 when they climb the Everest Poker Steps Sit & Gos or play in daily Step Jumper tournaments.
