December 2006 - 10 days - $2,000,000
Ultimate Bet is still taking US players, and now they're giving them (and the rest fo the world) a little something extra to play for. Phil Hellmuth, and how can you not love this guy, check out their latest ad . . .
December 1st through the 10th - 2006 Online Poker Championships
There will be a series of guaranteed money tournaments in everything from pot limit Omaha 8 or better, to elimination blackjack to the ever-popular No Limit Holdem. Buy-ins for these events are set at the $215 level for all but the final event, although I'm sure there will be plenty of satellites running during the days up to the event.
There is $1,000,000 guaranteed that is sprinkled across the first 9 events, and $1,000,000 guaranteed for the main event, the $530 buy-in NLH on Sunday the 10th.
Here is a schedule of all the action . . .

Besides the cash, a special commemorative bracelet is awarded to the winner of each tournament, which I think is a pretty cool trinket to have.
On top of all of this, one player who rises to the top of the tournament leaderboard at uBet gets the chance to take on the venerable Phil Hellmuth in a Heads Up battle where the winner takes home $10,000.
