Ultimate Bet kicks off the annual Aruba Poker Classic at the end of this month on Saturday, September 29, 2007 at the Radisson Resort and Casino in beautiful Aruba. To shake things up and to draw an even bigger field of players, UB announced that they will open up their private jet to those who are interested in playing in the WPT Turks & Caicos Poker Classic.
For the low price of $550, you can hop on the private jet after playing in the WPT Turks & Caicos, sit back, stretch your legs, and relax in luxury as you head to your next destination, Aruba, for the Poker Classic. Ultimately, paying $550 will save you the 11 hour journey through Miami (the private jet only takes two hours) and it will allow you to arrive on time and in style, relaxed and ready to partake in all of the exciting events that are planned.
The Aruba Poker Classic has grown by leaps and bounds in the past seven years but this year promises to be the biggest event ever. The 2007 event will offer an estimated $2,500,000 in prize money!
The tournament will take place at the Radisson Resort and Casino, a 14-acre oasis surrounded by colorful gardens, exotic lagoons and waterfalls, and located directly on the luscious beach in Aruba. The hotel boasts 353 guest rooms and suites, marble bathrooms, and colonial style furnishings with spacious balconies and patios. In addition, guests will revel in the stylish swimming pools, beachside dining, and award winning restaurants. They can take part in exciting water sports, relax in the spa or have some old fashioned fun in the 16,000 sq. foot themed casino.
Log into Ultimate Bet, download the software, and fire up an Aruba qualifier to win your $8,500 Aruba prize package! This package includes a $5000 seat, plus an additional $3000 for travel and accommodations. Along with your cash prize from UB, winning a seat ensures that you will meet 11-time bracelet winner, Phil Hellmuth in Aruba as he hosts an endless number of events throughout the week. Satellites are running through the end of the month, but don't fret if you don't score a seat online, because they will also be running single table satellites continuously in Aruba to further your chances of winning!
All participants in the Main Event will win free access to the WSOP Academy Aruba Edition, which is a Texas Holdem Strategy Session hosted by Hellmuth himself. The session will last four hours and promises to be full of informative strategy and tips for improving your game.
