UltimateBet Poker

Online poker room UltimateBet has donated an $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic prize package including a seat in the Main Event, to be awarded to the 2nd place winner of the Kentucky Derby Poker Championship scheduled for tomorrow. Hosting the tournament will be none other than UltimateBet's own poker pro, and 11 time WSOP Bracelet winner, Phil Hellmuth Jr., along with Robert "Mr. Omaha" Williamson III.

The Kentucky Derby Poker Championship is a charity Texas Hold'em tournament that was developed to raise awareness of changes in the climate, and how they are impacting our communities; especially those that are poor and/or underdeveloped. The tournament will kick off at 8:30 p.m. at Caesar's Indiana, Saturday, May 3rd. Environmentally supportive poker players will be gathering from around the country to buy-in to the charitable Hold'em tournament for $2,500.

Phil Hellmuth Jr. and Robert "Mr. Omaha" Williams III will not only be hosting the Kentucky Derby Poker Championship, providing commentary throughout the evening, but as an added entertainment, they will both participate in the event while performing such duties.
Half of the buy-in will go towards the prize pool, while the other half will be donated to a list of charitable organizations, including the Health and Climate Foundation, Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre and the Robby Albarado Foundation. These organizations collectively aid individuals whose lives have been effected by disastrous climates, epidemics, as well as the homeless.

UltimateBet will be awarding the $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic Main Event prize package to the 2nd place winner of the Kentucky Derby Poker Championship. The package includes buy-in, accommodations and travel expenses. The 2008 Aruba Poker Classic is scheduled to run September 27 through October 4, with UltimateBet guaranteeing a minimum $4,000,000 prize pool with at least $1,000,000 going to the 1st place victor.

Backgammon Masters Going For Guinness Gamers World Record

Leading online backgammon site, Backgammon Masters, has announced its application to engrave its name into the Guinness Gamer World Records Book by initiating the 'farthest backgammon dice toss'. Using two specially designed, inflatable dice, a full 1-acre 'backgammon' field and a helicopter, Backgammon Masters expects to make history with this monumental, record-breaking match.

According to Backgammon Masters, here is how it will all go down: Two professional backgammon players will participate in the extraordinary match, seated within a helicopter rising 200-300 feet into the air. A one-acre field will be designed to precisely replicate a traditional backgammon board. The players will drop the large inflatable dice, specially designed to withstand such an impact, from the helicopter onto the backgammon field. Staff members on the field will maneuver the extra large game pieces, as requested by each player via a walkie-talkie system.

Expert helicopter pilot Quentin Smith, famed for his treacherous exploits across the desert and Arctic territories under extreme conditions, will assist in the event to ensure the safety of all involved. Smith is a trained expert in regards to helicopter safety, suitable flight locations and aviation regulations.

Should the event go off as planned, an associate with the Guinness Gamer World Records will document the height of the drops, placing Backgammon Masters into the record books for the farthest backgammon dice toss. The specially designed dice, valued at 1,000 Euro, will be awarded to the winner of the match.

Backgammon Masters will be selling special tickets to the record-breaking event, with all proceeds going to charity. The online Backgammon site has initiated this astonishing attempt in an effort to promote its numerous Backgammon Freeroll Tournaments. Aside from online backgammon games and tournaments, Backgammon Masters also offers blackjack and online poker, at variable stakes and limits for blackjack fans, within its versatile gaming lobby.
