Mountain Series: Start climbing for millions
George Mallory said it best.
Asked by the New York Times why people climbed mountains, Mallory said, "Because they are there."
Now, there is another reason: you could make a lot of money.
In just a couple of weeks, PokerStars will launch the brand new Mountain Series. What's that, you say?
Well, it's ten tournaments that will get you climbing, starting with the manageable $11 Sugarloaf and ascending all the way to the $2,100 re-entry Mt. Everest. Why play it? Because there is lots of money there.
