Ultimate Bet Offers One Last 2009 WSOP Promo

by Poker Team

Though the 2009 World Series of Poker is officially underway with several tournaments already in the books, online poker site Ultimate Bet, is still offering qualifying satellites for their players to participate in the $10,000 Main Event.  If that’s not enough, the site’s most recognizable poker pro, 11-time bracelet winner, Phil Hellmuth Jr., issued a statement yesterday revealing that they are offering another incredible incentive.  In celebrating the 10th anniversary of their online operation, Ultimate bet has placed and extra $10 Million up for grabs should a player reach the final table of the main event, wear Ultimate Bet gear throughout and ultimately take down the championship.  This is the largest incentive based promotion offered by any poker site for its representatives.

The main event is scheduled to kick off on July 3rd and will play through to July 15th when the final table will be set.  Then the tournament will continue in November for televised main event action just as last year’s installment had done.  This year’s main event will be aired on ESPN on November 10th.

Though the announcement is coming as most Ultimate Bet qualifiers have already made their way to Las Vegas, they can still be part of this promotion.  They can pick up the Ultimate Bet apparel at the Bellagio hotel between 11:00am and 1:00pm and between 3:00pm and 6:00pm any day, pick up a house phone near one of the elevator banks and ask for Phil Hellmuth.  From there, they will be given a bag containing all of the merchandise they will need.  The bag is reported to contain shirts, caps, a seat cushion and several other Ultimate Bet items.  If that’s not enough, all players taking part in this promotion are invited to Ultimate Bet’s party at Studio 54 being held 3 full days before the main event.
