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.

Each new mountain tournament will have a higher buy-in and higher guarantee, ranging from the $11 buy-in $100,000 guarantee all the way up to the big $2,100 re-entry $1.5 million guarantee.
