Absolute and Ultimate Bet Poker’s $1,000,000 Leaderboard Competition

Share this
Since becoming a part of the huge CEREUS Poker Network in November of 2008, both Ultimate Bet Poker and Absolute Poker have been offering some fantastic promotions to poker players.

The newest mega deal for players is the newly revamped Leaderboard promotion where a Million Dollars will be given away.

Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet both remain separate in regard to the unique features and playing experience they offer, where they join forces is with players on both poker sites now playing together at the same tables and in the same tournaments.  Since all players are combined to compete in one Tournament Leaderboard competition, the prize pool has jumped to epic proportions. If you think there wasn’t much reason to play on either of these online poker sites before - you now have at least a million new reasons!

When poker players play in tournaments on Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet Poker, they are automatically given tournament Leaderboard points. How many points the player earns depends on what their finishing position is. For regular tournament players, this is a terrific bonus because they don’t have to do anything they don’t already do to qualify for the Leaderboard. Just by playing their favorite tournaments, they accumulate points. The more they play and win - the more points they earn which each site keeps a tally of. Players can easily access their Leaderboard status with updates in real-time on the user friendly Tournament Leaderboard page. This way every player will instantly know where they stand in the weekly, monthly and yearly Leaderboard rankings.

The Leaderboard ranking system is designed to be fair to all players, no matter what their skill level, tournament buy-in or number of entrants. That way, even players who play in small buy-in tournaments have as good a chance of placing high in the Leaderboard ranks as a player who plays big tournaments.

 The yearly Tournament Leaderboard will have a total prize pool of $100,000 and will award $50,000 to the top 10 finishers, PLUS Aruba Poker Classic prize packages to the top three players.  The top 100 players for the year will also be invited to the special $50,000 Yearly Tournament Leaderboard FreeRoll.

With this unprecedented One Million Dollar Leaderboard prize pool, both poker beginners and pros will be keeping the tournament tables hopping at Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet Poker, as they all vie for the huge cash prize pool.

Phil Helmuth, 11 time WSOP bracelet winner and Ultimate Bet pro team member, commented on the new Leaderboard promotion, “I love a good contest at the poker tables. With $100,000 now on the line for free, and state of the art technology to check out where you stand on the leader board, let the games begin!"

If you love tournaments, then Ultimate Bet Poker and Absolute Poker have just upped the ante, by giving you a million more reasons to sign-up and get in on their Leaderboard promotion for your shot at a share of a Million Dollars!
