The world's largest online poker room is giving away a chance to climb the world's largest mountain.  PokerStars.com is sending one lucky player on an all expenses paid trip up Mount Everest. 

The ascent to the summit of Mount Everest has always stood as one of mankind's greatest feats, a brutal test of endurance achieved by only a handful of experienced climbers.  PokerStars has announced it is sponsoring the ascent of Mount Everest by the Patagonian Brothers Damien and Willie Benegas as well as the winning PokerStars player who will accompany the pair to the base camp in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Included will be the brothers playing poker atop the mountain.  This will be the highest anyone has ever played poker.  So take THAT Reefer Poker!!!

They will also be playing for charity, raising money for a foundation that works to keep Everest free from the rubbish that accumulates on the ascent. PokerStars will be donating $5,000 to the foundation.

PokerStars players will be able to follow the progress of the climb up the mountain on the PokerStars website.
