The first ever amateur poker cup, the Everest Poker International Cup (EPIC), will be organized by the well-known poker site Everest Poker. Recently announced by the organizer, we already know the details of this event. The EPIC will consist of online qualifiers leading up to 50 finalists who will fly to Alicante, Spain in order to take part in the Epic Live Finale on 9-11 September this year. The final winner will return home $75,000 richer.
The final tournament of the EPIC, the Epic Live Finale, will have a $1,500 buy-in, will accommodate players in double rooms costing $575 at the Hotel Spa Porta Maris, will offer them dinners and a welcome party plus $425 cash to cover the travel expenses.
In order to win the EPIC package and have the chance to go to Alicante, you have to go through some stages first.
Stage 1- You will have to play in the Free EPIC Feeders, which run 5 times daily, and finish in the last 10 players to advance to stage 2. Another way to get to stage 2 is to play and earn 5 Summit Points every day for 5 days in a week, earning you a free token.
Stage 2- Weekly Satellites are held every Sunday at 19:15 GMT. Only the top 25 finalists will go to the next level. You can skip stage 1 and buy your entry to stage 2 for 250 Summit Points.
Stage 3- The EPIC Direct Entry Tournament is the final stage before the EPIC final. It will be held on August 1 and 29 at 20:00 GMT at the end of which we will know the 20 winners of the EPIC packages. They will be awarded $25,000 cash plus 20 live finale packages. Of course, you can buy directly in for 25,000 Summit Points.
Players who are new to the site or intend to sign up should be prepared for a surprise. Everest Poker offers them the Fast track to Alicante Epic Rookie Satellites! These events run every day at 19:15 GMT and are free for new players. Each day, the 10 finalists of that day will be sent straight to Stage 3, the Epic Direct Entry tournament, where they can compete for $25,000 plus the entry to the final EPIC event!
