Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
It was a history-making weekend in online poker as UltimateBet.com kicked off its $2-million poker series and doled out hundreds of thousands of dollars in guaranteed cash.
The UltimateBet.com Online Championship began December 7th at 8pm ET with a $100,000 Guaranteed 6 Seat No Limit Hold'em poker tournament. Over the course of the weekend, the popular online poker site hosted four additional events, which collectively guaranteed $575,000 US.
Shotskee, CollegeChick and Rizen finished first in events one, three, and five respectively. But the series was extra lucrative for one particular online poker player who took control of events two and four.
Wild Duck reigned victorious in two major UBOC events - Saturday's $75,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em poker tournament and Sunday's $200,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em event - earning a total of $84,759.10 in one weekend.
With seven online poker events remaining as of Tuesday, December 11th, poker enthusiasts around the globe will be watching the tables at UltimateBet.com to see if Wild Duck has more ammunition on his Texas Hold'em poker belt.
They won't have to wait long to find out. UBOC continues on Tuesday, December 11th with a $100K Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em poker tournament. Wednesday's $40,000 tournament is made for fans of Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better. And Thursday's $150,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em poker tourney promises to reward final table participants quite handsomely. All three tournaments get underway at 8pm ET.
Dubbed UBOC by the online poker site, the UltimateBet.com Online Championship features 13 online poker events spread out over 10 days. UBOC offers players the chance to play in a variety of guaranteed online poker games including 6-Seat No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Hold'em, Limit Hold'em, and Pot Limit Omaha 8 or better.
The series culminates with a $1000+50 No Limit Texas Hold'em that boasts a $750,000 prize pool. UltimateBet plans to broadcast the final table of the December 16th event online.
