Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 6, 2007
UltimateBet is quickly building a reputation as the Texas Hold'em world's heads-up headquarters, and for good reason. The popular online poker room opened the registration floodgates to the fifth major heads-up tournament series in a span of just four months.
The 5th UltimateBet.com Heads-Up Smack Down, a head-to-head Texas Hold'em tournament modeled after college basketball's famous bracket series, gets underway December 8th.
Online poker players looking to be a contender in the fifth installment of UltimateBet's signature heads-up series need to gather their chips and hurry. The online poker site is increasing the intensity of the latest tournament by limiting it to just 32 players.
Beginning Saturday, December 8th at 2pm ET, would-be Texas Hold'em champions will compete in fierce one-on-one bracket battles over four weeks as the playing field narrows itself down from 32 players to the final two. The Heads-Up Smack Down champion will win 20% of the prize pool, a limited edition Heads-Up Smack Down championship ring, free entry into the next Heads-Up Smack Down and entry into the end-of-year Heads-up Bracket of Champions where the winner gets to play 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth for $30,000.
Registration for the 5th UltimateBet.com Heads-Up Smack Down is now open and players can secure their spot in the tournament for $500+30. For those online poker players looking to end the year with a financial bang, the timing of the tournament couldn't be better. The champion of the series will be decided on December 30th.
