Spaniard wins Everest Poker Avalanche

MONTREAL, Quebec – (PRESS RELEASE) – In the early hours of 29 May, Ismael Arribas Munoz, 26, from Madrid, became the 2008 Everest Poker Avalanche Champion by outplaying and outlasting competition from four Germans, two French, two Dutch and a Swede for the $1,000,000 Everest Poker tournament. This year, the annual tournament was held aboard a Royal Caribbean Cruises luxury liner in the Mediterranean Sea.

The live event was billed as a battle between youth and experience, with 10 finalists ranged in age from 21 to 55. Youth won out comprehensively as Munoz took the top spot ($200,000), followed by Wing Kwok Tang, 25, from the Netherlands ($120,000), and Brice Cousin, 25, from Paris ($90,000).

Ismael was cheered on by close friends and fellow Everest Poker players, including one of the new Everest Poker Live The Dream Team members, Pablo Ubierna, who was recently in the money at the European Poker Tour (EPT) Monte Carlo – his first tournament as an Everest Poker player.

The German contingent made up 40% of the final table but their top player could only manage a 4th place finish. The traditionally strong Swedish representative was the first player knocked out of the tournament.
