When it comes to poker tournament prizes the standard fare is an assortment of gadgets, cars and oodles of cash. PokerStars is aiming to reach new heights as far as a prize is concerned with its Mount Everest promotion.

Yes, you read that right, they really are offering a trip to Mount Everest, the real one in the Himalayas and not some replica in the backlot of a Vegas casino. PokerStars is sponsoring Patagonian brothers Damien and Willie Benegas on their latest expedition up the highest mountain in the world and will be sending one lucky player to the Everest base camp to see them off.

The brothers, who are raising money for an organisation that keeps the mountain free from rubbish, will be playing some poker on their Himalayan expedition and even hope to fit a game at the summit of Everest.

The special Mount Everest tournament takes place at 11pm UK time on 30th May 2010. The buy in is just $1.10 with one lucky player set for a once in a lifetime experience.
