UltimateBet Cancel the Aruba Poker Classic

In other news UB poker have decided to stop hosting the Aruba Poker Classic and focus more on getting their players and team to bigger events to help boost their presence in the live tournament circuit.

UB Poker will also be adding more online tournaments including a monthly guaranteed tournament with a $500,000 prize pool. With the success of the Ultimate Bet Online Series – UBOC, they plan to make the online series take place twice annually.

I’m sure many poker players will be upset about the Aruba Poker Classic cancellation, but the new changes are in the best interests of the Ultimate Bet Poker and their players.
