Hanh Tran qualified for the Everest Poker International Cup at an exclusive live event at the Montesino Casino in Vienna, Austria.

“Everest Poker organized a very nice tournament. The combination of a beautiful beach resort and a poker tournament is great; the hotel and service was really good and the Everest Poker staff helpful and friendly. The professional structure by TK Events was especially brilliant. I was down to only 4 big blinds on a certain point. But thanks to the deep stack structure, I worked my way up to the final table. Thank you Everest Poker!”- Hanh Tran, Everest Poker International Cup Champion, 2011.
