Rick Dacey, a PokerStars blogger, has posted a blog on Snowfest, one of the most popular of PokerStars’ winter poker events, informing poker fans that they can expect one whole week packed with poker action and snow sports soon.

European Poker Tour (EPT) legs have been held in Alpine Palace Resort and Saalbach Hinterglemm twice so far. The winners of these events were Valdimir Geshkenbein and Eric Baake. PokerStars is going to organize this prestigious poker event on these snowy slopes for the third time.

PokerStars Snowfest will be held from Dec 16 to Dec 22, and the largest online poker room in the world has already launched qualifier satellites for the same, giving players the chance to win prize packages worth €2,700 to the event. Interested players can find these qualifiers by first clicking on the Events tab and then on the Special tab. Alternatively, they can also type Snowfest in PokerStars’ search field. The online poker room is running seat-only qualifiers for its €1,100 event.

The tournament will be hosted in Alpine Card Casino, a widely acclaimed Austrian gambling hotspot on the Alpine slopes. It also belongs to the Alpine Palace New Balance Luxury Resort, a luxurious five-star hotel, located a short distance from Salzburg. The venue offers almost everything a gambling enthusiast requires—restaurants, casino, a fitness centre, a spa, and plenty of snow. When players need a break from poker, they can get hold of some skates and skis and have some fun in the snow. To qualify for the same, players simply have to visit PokerStars.

Qualifier satellites are not the hottest things happening at PokerStars right now. If players want to know the hottest PokerStars news, they only have to read the PokerStars blog. For instance, players are waiting with bated breath for the All Stars Showdown, a tough heads up single elimination poker tournaments, which is scheduled to begin this weekend.

This special high-stakes event is similar to the SuperStar Showdown, but with some interesting differences. The last man standing will win a breathtakingly huge prize of $550,000. The game will begin with four pairs of players simultaneously playing heads up against each other on four tables. Each heads up match will continue till one of the players loses everything.

Six players have already signed up for the event, which will be having a buy in of $100,000, and the poker community is wondering who the other two players will be.
