UltimateBet Hires Annie Duke to Manage Tournament Schedule

Leading online poker site UltimateBet.com today announced a groundbreaking new poker tournament schedule while welcoming one of the world’s greatest poker professionals as its new poker room Consultant. The online poker site has taken the bold step of handing over the management of its tournament schedule to Annie Duke.

“Annie Duke has a proven track record of not only playing the game, but also knowing exactly what online poker players want to see in a tournament schedule,” stated UltimateBet.com spokesperson George MacLean. “We’re confident that her unparalleled insight will significantly enhance our poker offering and strengthen our online poker community.”

The poker champion is no stranger to the UltimateBet brand. Duke was a key player in designing the UltimateBet software and was a consultant for the poker room several years ago. She is excited to be back on board to build a schedule that will attract old and new players to the site.

“I opted to accept the poker room Consultant position after spending time with UltimateBet’s new senior management team,” notes Duke. “I am extraordinarily pleased with their commitment to wanting what’s best for the poker player and I have a renewed sense of enthusiasm in the future of UltimateBet.”

Highlights of the new schedule, to be launched on April 28, include:

New Sniper tournaments with massive guarantees
$1.2 million in weekly guarantees
Nightly DeepStack tournaments featuring longer blind levels where players start with 5,000 chips for tourneys with buy-ins of $100+9 and above, and 3,000 starting chips for tourneys with buy-ins under $100+9
New Short, Super Short, and Mega Short Stack satellites allow online poker fans to qualify so many new ways, all the way up to one half hour before an event
Lots of ways for players to qualify for their WSOP* seat – including a 3-seat guaranteed tournament on Sunday and a 25-seat and 50-seat guaranteed event
New $1 Turbo Rebuy $5,000 guaranteed tournament where poker fans can win their seat for as little as 6 cents
New Sit and Go satellites for all major events on the site
$200,000 guaranteed tournament every Sunday
Online poker players can also expect a host of new promotions and leader board competitions that will solidify UltimateBet.com as the most exciting, most lucrative place for Texas Holdem fans to hone their game.
