Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 2, 2008
It's not just the battle between the Giants and the Patriots this weekend destined to capture the attention of American football fans. A heads-up match of a different stripe is brewing at online poker room UltimateBet.com and the final match coincides with Super Bowl Sunday.
The championship match of the sixth UltimateBet Heads-Up Smackdown tournament kicks off at 2pm ET on Sunday, February 3rd at UltimateBet.com.
The battle began on January 5th when 64 online poker players competed in fierce one-on-one Texas Hold'em battles. With only one player surviving each heads-up match, the field of players was cut in half every week. The final four will battle it out this Saturday for the two seats in Sunday's heads-up final.
On Sunday, the two players left standing will fight for an impressive first place prize, a limited edition Heads-Up Smackdown championship ring 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.
Details on the seventh Heads-Up Smackdown bracket series are expected soon.
