  • Everest Poker WSOP Qualifiers Earn $1 Million Bonus

    Monday, July 20th, 2009 by t2admin

Before the 2009 World Series of Poker started, Everest Poker made an offer to their players. They offered their players a chance to win $1 million by just qualifying for a seat at the WSOP Main Event. if a player managed to make the final table of the Main Event then EverestPoker would give all Main Event qualifiers a piece of a $1 million bonus. Well, Antoine Saout has made the November Nine and earned the cool million dollar bonus for the online qualifiers.

At just twenty five, Saout is playing in his first every WSOP and he has made it to the final table, securing a spot in the November Nine. The Main Event has over 6,400 players registered and Saout had to outlast almost all of them to make it to the final table. One of his hardest tasks was spending the last three days of the competition playing against Phil Ivey, one of the best poker pros competing.

Because of Saout, the main event qualifiers from Everest Poker will now earn $19,607 just for qualifying. I’m sure all of the qualifiers are happy and rooting for Saout as he just earned them a nice bonus.

Even though Saout has made the final table he will have his work cut out for him. He is sitting next to last in chips, with only 9,500,000. He will find he is not sitting pretty once November rolls around but hopefully he will be able to stay in the competition for some time and maybe even win the event. But even if he does not make it very far in final table play, Saout will still go home a millionaire, as will all of the players sitting at the final table in November.
