Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 21, 2007
The 2007 Aruba Poker Classic could turn out to be one of online poker's biggest land-based events thanks to another tournament on a neighboring island and an express shuttle linking the two events.
UltimateBet today announced that it has opened up its private jet to those playing in the WPT Turks & Caicos Poker Classic.
For only $550, World Poker Tour Turks & Caicos poker players looking to extend their winning streak can head to Aruba for the 2007 Aruba Poker Classic. The less than two-hour flight will appeal to those WPT Turks & Caicos poker players who want to play poker in UltimateBet's signature Aruba tournament and partake in a week of exclusive parties and events without making the eleven-hour trek through Miami.
The 2007 Aruba Poker Classic takes place at the Radisson Aruba Resort & Casino from September 29th through October 6th. Matt Savage, one of the world's most respected tournament directors, is on board to oversee the event.
Along with an estimated $2.5 million prize pool, the weeklong event offers online poker players the opportunity to celebrate their successes at the tables with fellow Texas Hold'em poker players and with the industry's best professionals. Past Aruba Poker Classic attendees have included Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke, Jennifer Tilly and Phil "The Unabomber" Laak.
Main Event participants will also gain free access to World Series Of Poker (WSOP) Academy Aruba Edition, a 4-hour long Texas Hold'em Poker strategy session featuring Phil Hellmuth and some of poker's biggest names.
Online poker players can win an $8,500 Aruba prize package for as little as $5 at UltimateBet.com. The prize package includes the $5,500 main event seat and $3,000 for travel and accommodations.
