Important note: Everest Poker does NOT accept real money players from the United States. Now here is a site I'm amazed no one thought of years ago. At Everest, you can play against folks from about 16 different countries, and even chat with them in their own languages. Yes, Everest Poker is the world's first multi-lingual online poker room.
Although they are incredibly young, launched in July of '04, and many of their features (such as multi-table tournaments, Omaha, and 7-Card Stud) are not yet up and running, the site is already attracting a global following from the vast pool of gamblers not served by most of the American-centric poker rooms that dominate the internet.
By the end of 2005, Everest intends to be available in English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Danish, German, Portuguese, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Swedish, Korean, Norwegian, Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek, many of which are already available.
Finally, and this is not to be understated, Everest Poker has an amazing array of interactive tutorials, training rooms (equipped with automated trainers), detailed rules, tips, and strategies pages, including step-by-step information on how to use every aspect of their website. They even have no-deposit-necessary Freerolls (though they call them something different) with real cash prizes. That's right! You can win actual money at Everest Poker without ever making a single deposit. What other site can claim that?
Without a doubt, Everest Poker is the newbies' poker room, aiming to bring the game into the millions of untapped households too intimidated to leap into the deep end of the ocean where all the American sharks await.
