WPT Aruba on Ultimate Bet
For anyone who is unaware of it, UB is currently running freeroll qualifying tournaments for packages to be awarded to the September WPT event in Aruba. Daily freeroll qualifiers are drawing fields of around 2500 players, 50 of whom win seats in the weekly Aruba Satellites held on Sunday afternoons. The top 100 places in the Sunday tourney win a seat in the monthly tourney, where the grand prize is airfare & hotel for 2 to Aruba, plus the $5200 buy-in to the 2005 Ultimate Poker NLHE Championship. Pretty cool that UB is opening the door to freeroll players to get a crack at the big time. Altogether, UB is awarding 400 WPT Aruba packages to its winners.
