This is an amazing opportunity for all poker players to not only win at the WSOP Main Event, but to be a VIP while attending all the special Ultimate Bet anniversary events. It will all kick off at the beautiful Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in July, when the lucky 50 Ultimate Bet WSOP package winners will be joining Ultimate Bets famous poker ambassador – Phil Helmuth.

Celebrating his 20th anniversary of his first WSOP Championship title, 11 time bracelet winner Phil Helmuth will be on hand representing Ultimate Bet Poker and you can be a special guest  at his VIP invitation only 20th Anniversary party! This party is to celebrate the year 1989, when Helmuth set a record when he became the youngest WSOP World Champ. At just 24 years old he won the World Series of Poker Main Event, a record that stood for 19 years until 22 year old Peter Eastgate from Denmark was crowned the 2008 WSOP Champ.

Proud to be a spokesman for Ultimate Bet poker, Helmuth says; “The World Series of Poker is the ultimate stuff of legends, and at UB, we’re on a crusade to make poker’s Holy Grail, the Main Event, our own. I’ll be bringing my best game to the table, and looking to add another piece of WSOP ‘bling’ to my résumé.” He added, “2009 is a huge year for me and for UB, and with dual Anniversaries to be buzzed about, I’m itching to hit Vegas and get this party started!”
