UltimateBet (UB) is preparing for the "November Nine" by giving away thousands of dollars and the opportunity to play with its own WSOP champion. The online poker site's new Epic Nine promotion is giving poker players the opportunity to qualify for one of the eight slots in a $50,000 sit-and-go with eleven-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth throughout the month of October.
Poker players can qualify for a slot by climbing to the top of UltimateBet's Multi-Table tournament Leaderboard, finishing in the number one or two slots of the Daily Sit-And-Go Tournament Leaderboard or by acquiring the most STATUS Points in the Daily Ring Game STATUS Points Race.
Aside from that, cash game poker players that acquire Ultimate Player Status and Ultimate Legend or Icon Status in UltimateBet's RAISE program will automatically qualify for one of three freerolls, each with a slot on the line. The $50,000 Epic Nine will go off on November 10th, 2009 at 9:00 p.m. EST with a $25,000 1st place prize, $15,000 for 2nd place and $10,000 for 3rd place.
There will also be a bounty on Phil Hellmuth's head, giving the poker player that eliminates him a slot in UltimateBet's $200,000 guaranteed tournament. The site is also giving away $500, $300 and $200 to the top three poker players in the Points Race Leaderboard and Sit-and-Go Tournament Leaderboard throughout the month of October as part of the Epic Nine promotion.
