An exciting day for sure for Everest, as they send 39 players to the World Series of Poker Side Event # 49, which is held at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

“The WSOP side event is exploding in popularity,” said Jonathan May, Everest Poker property manager. “This year’s event saw 3200 players joining in the game, compared to less than 500 in 2006.”

Of the participating Everest Poker players, three ended up in the money. Mikael Johansson (Sofia19) from Sweden finished 192, earning $3871. Close behind with Francisco Lopez (pakito) from the Everest Poker Spanish team finished at 217, earning $3,441. Rounding out the three was Albes Danal (chefe) from Germany. He placed 225th and earned $3,441.

“I’m tempted to say that our party at the Palms was even more enjoyable than the actual event,” added May. “All of our players got some of that trademark Everest Poker hospitality.”

The thirty-nine players who made it to the WSOP Side Event received a gift bag loaded with Everest Poker swag and enjoyed a part at the world-famous Palms Hotel and Casino. In addition to free food and drinks, they also got some tantalizing hints about upcoming events such as the Everest Poker Avalanche finale and the Everest Poker European Cup.

Good Luck Everest!!
