Qualify for the $125,000 Everest Poker International Cup for Free
Download Everest Poker to play in a series of exclusive league freerolls in August to qualify for the Everest Poker International Cup (EPIC) package. The winner will walk away with a $2,500 package to play in the Everest EPIC finale in Alicante, Spain, from September 9 to 11.
About the $75,000 EPIC Final
EPIC from Everest Poker is a $125,000 freeroll series, with a $75,000 live finale in Alicante, Spain, taking place September 9 to 11. Only 50 players will be attending this exclusive tournament, and the only way to get there normally is to win your place in one of two direct-entry tournaments on August 1 and 29, which cost 25,000 summit points to enter. However, PokerNews has secured one exclusive package to the event, and 15 direct-entry tokens to a further $25,000 freeroll, which can be won for as little as 10 summit points.
Although the event is a freeroll, players can expect a world-class experience because Thomas Kremser and his team of professionals at TK Events have agreed to help organize and direct the live tournament.
Taking place between August 2 and 25, you can play in twice-weekly freerolls on Everest Poker. These tournaments are for league points only, which go toward a tournament leaderboard. The leaderboard takes into account each player’s best five results – so no need to give up if you make a poor start to the series.
Each league event has an exclusive password, which will be released on our EPIC league page on the day of the tournament.

The first-place prize is a $2,500 EPIC package, which includes $1,500 buy-in, $575 accommodation, and $425 for travel expenses. The next 15 players will all win tokens to play in a $25,000 direct-entry tournament on August 29 where a further ten EPIC packages can be won on Everest Poker.
Knock Out Fabrice Soulier
As a special treat to add an element of player value to this event, during our final freeroll on August 28 you can play against Everest pro Fabrice Soulier. The recent $10,000 HORSE champion at the World Series of Poker will have a 30,000 Summit Point bounty on his head, which can be used in the Summit Points Store. He will be playing under the screen name FabSoul.
