Summary: Online poker site UltimateBet launches online qualifiers for the 2008 World Series of Poker and introduces the UB ARMY to enhance the land-based poker experience for all of its players.

We're looking for a few good men and women to join the UB ARMY and show this year's World Series of Poker what UltimateBet players are truly made of

Texas Hold'em is anything but a team sport, but one online poker site believes there's serious strength in numbers when it comes to this year's World Series of Poker. UltimateBet today launched online qualifiers for the 2008 WSOP and introduced the UB ARMY, a new poker program dubbed 'a force to be reckoned with' by the online poker room.

"We're looking for a few good men and women to join the UB ARMY and show this year's World Series of Poker what UltimateBet players are truly made of," stated UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean.

Online poker players who win their $12,000 Main Event prize package through UltimateBet will automatically be enrolled in the UB ARMY and be a part of the ultimate experience of poker camaraderie. Highlights of being a member of the UB ARMY include:

  • Main Event Grand Entrance at the WSOP with Phil Hellmuth and fellow comrades
  • Exclusive UltimateBet parties and access to the UltimateBet Barracks
  • UB ARMY gear including Camo wear, UB Army tags, and t-shirt
  • Boot camp sessions located in the UB Barracks with online poker pros and Phil Hellmuth

But it isn't just about looking good, playing smart and partying hard. Soldiers in the UB ARMY will also share in the successes of both Online Team UB and the field of UltimateBet players. The online poker site will match 25% and 10% of the two groups' winnings, respectively, and distribute the cash among fellow UB ARMY comrades.

What's more, any UB ARMY member who makes it to the Main Event final table will win an additional $200,000 and the UB ARMY soldier who lasts the longest in the Main Event will win their spot in the 2008 Aruba Poker Classic, UltimateBet's signature island tournament set to get underway this September.

MacLean notes that the UB ARMY is the next logical step for an online poker site that has one of the strongest poker communities and produces some of the world's best poker players. 11-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth plays exclusively at UltimateBet and is one of the site's most respected pros. Most recently, an online poker player with the moniker r_a_y won his seat to the 2008 WPT LA Poker Classic through UltimateBet. He finished 5th in the main event, securing an impressive $296,860.
