UltimatePoker, the first legal US site, is expanding to the brick and mortar venue. Ultimate Poker will host a live tournament series at Red Rock Casino in August.
UltimatePoker has taken full advantage of being the first legal poker site to hit the US market. The site is quickly approaching the 10 million hand mark and as mentioned on this site previously is taking a page from the PokerStars playbook to mark the occasion. UltimatePoker has also signed up an impressive number of pros for the sight including Antonio Esfandiari, Lauren Kling, William Reynolds and Jason Somerville.
UltimatePoker now plans the UltimatePoker Challenge to take place at Red Rocks Casino in August. The nineteen event series caps off with a $200K guarantee $1000 + 100 No Limit Hold’em main event. Day 1-A of the Main Event will kick off on September 6th.
Smart money says that the UltimatePoker pros, at least some of them, will be playing in the event.
Red Rock is part of UltimatePoker’s casino partner Station Casinos group.
