A PokerNews player from Spain has just turned $2.20 into a $9,000 trip of a lifetime to play in the Everest Poker ONE in Monte Carlo. PokerNews held an exclusive week-long series of micro-stakes qualifiers to play in a private finale to win the package on Everest Poker.
Spanish player "botest" only registered an Everest Poker account a week ago via PokerNews to play in this series and won his place in the finale at the last chance. He came in third in the $2.20 freezeout on Sunday, March 20, to claim his seat in the finale, which he went on to win on Wednesday night.
Nine other players at the final table got the consolation prize of a seat worth $109 in the $50,000 Guaranteed tournament on Everest Poker this Sunday.

Second- and third-place finishers will receive entry into a $33 feeder satellite.
The final stage takes place on Tuesday at 2030 GMT. You can either win your place in the Summit Point Satellites or buy in directly for $360. Two $9,000 packages are guaranteed each week.
