Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
Move over Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson. UltimateBet http://www.ultimatebet.com/ - one of the world's leading online poker sites - today revealed the winner of their 'Be A Pro' online poker promotion.
A 24-year-old amateur poker player from Fairhope, Alabama, who goes by 'KrazyComish' on UltimateBet and CK in real life, is on his way to living like a pro and will join the world's best poker players on the professional poker circuit.
"I'm still in shock," said CK of his win. "I never expected to win this. I couldn't sleep the next day."
His shock is warranted. By finishing first in the online poker tournament, CK has won seats in the WPT World Championship; the WSOP Main Event; UltimateBet's signature Aruba Poker Classic; WPT Bellagio 5 Diamond; WPT Tunica; and WPT LA Poker Classic. Also included in the package are travel expenses for each event.
What's more, adding to the 'Be A Pro' theme of the package, CK will receive training from poker's best professionals to help him prepare for playing in the big leagues.
To make his way to the final table, CK played in a series of free online qualifiers. With a decent amount of chips in front of him, CK chose to play for small pots. His strategy paid off.
"The desire to play in some of the world's biggest live poker tournaments is what made me enter this tourney," says CK. "Now I get to play with the big guys. This is huge."
