With the final table of the World Series of Poker* Main Event on hold until November , poker fans are feeling a little deprived of multi million-dollar Texas Hold’em action. This weekend, that will all change. UltimateBet is holding its much-talked-about Aruba 50-seat Guaranteed poker tournament this Saturday with the goal of sending a record number of players to the online poker site’s signature poker event in Aruba.
On Saturday, July 19th, UltimateBet will award at least 50 online poker players with Aruba Poker Classic prize packages valued at $8,500 apiece through its Aruba 50-seat Guarantee.
The $500+30 online Texas Hold’em event begins on Saturday, July 19th at 5:30pm ET at UltimateBet.com. Each package includes a $5,000+500 buy-in to the 2008 Aruba Poker Classic and an additional $3,000 for travel and accommodations .
With several satellites running daily, Texas Hold’em players can still win their way to Saturday’s 50-Seat Aruba Satellite for as little as $10.
The 2008 Aruba Poker Classic takes place from September 27th through October 4th at the Radisson Aruba Resort & Casino. Online poker fans are invited to go head-to-head with the world's best poker professionals in nonstop poker tournaments and cash games, rub elbows with Hollywood celebrities at exclusive Aruba parties, and re-energize by soaking up the sun on the world's best beach.
