I'm thinking about trying to win my way into the Aruba Classic. It's an official World Poker Tour event sponsored by Ultimate Bet
. It's a weeklong event starting on September 26, 2005, and ending on October 1, 2005. It's called the Ultimate Poker Classic Tournament
, or at least that's the official name for the event. There are continuous single table satellites running at Ultimate Bet right now, and winning one of the single table satellites wins tournament entry chips which can be used to buy your way into the $100 + $9 entry fee Aruba Super Satellite, which is where you get your chance to win your way to Aruba.
They're also having multi table events with buy-ins as low as $3. Some of this stuff is definitely within my meager bankroll these days. Anyway, the prize package is worth over $9000 with these satellites, so they're worth taking a shot at anyway, even though I'd probably be more likely to put $9000 to good use than a trip to Aruba to play poker. (Wait a minute. Aruba. Poker. What the hell would be a better use for $9000 than that? What's gotten into me?)
