May 11, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB and Absolute Poker are getting in on the prop bet action that’s raising stakes and eyebrows as these last longer challenges at the poker tables continue to be more about a healthy dose of one-up-man-ship amongst mates than the money. The Craziest Last Longer Bet promotion is pitching at players who love to live on the edge, and only those with the sickest, baddest, most ridiculous last longer bets need apply. There’s a World Series of Poker* (“WSOP*)VIP prize package on the line, along with the rush of the punt and the chance to get the best of a buddy.
The leading online poker sites have put the call out to all who enjoy upping the ante on their friendly game of Hold ’em; the Craziest Last Longer Bet is perfect for players who need a supped up sidebet to put that glint in their eye, and who think they’ve got game enough to outplay and outlast their friend at the felt in a major World Series of Poker* tournament.
So players, channel your best Scorcese, Tarantino or Van Sant, and get cracking on capturing your craziest last longer bet on video, iPhone, or webcam; detail exactly what the first to bust in your bet has to do, and don’t hold back. Go wild, and above all get creative
Think the recent challenge that had Joe Sebok getting permanently inked with the heads of pro players Gavin Smith and Jeff Madsen after busting first in a last longer prop bet with his mates. Whether it’s an outlandish tattoo, streaking down the Strip in Vegas in the girlfriend’s underwear, or singing a bad karaoke version of ‘The Gambler’ in front of the Bellagio Fountain, now’s the time to make Seebs side bet look pathetic.
All that’s required is for players to be willing to share their wackiest last longer bet with the world on YouTube, and tag it either “Our video for the www.UB.com last longer bet” or
“www.AbsolutePoker.com WSOP 2010 last longer bet”; if others like the idea and it gets the most votes, the CEREUS Network will ship the winning pair of poker rivals to Las Vegas to play out their bet in Event # 54 of the WSOP*, a $1,000 buy-in No Limit Hold ‘em event that kicks off at the Rio in ‘Sin City’ on July 1, 2010. Return airfares to Las Vegas, hotel accommodation, and the two seats in Event # 54 are included, plus the winners will enjoy meeting Team UB and Absolute Poker pro players while hanging with them at the exclusive invitation-only UB player party.
So, get freaky, and get filming. The Craziest Last Longer Bet online promotion is running now, across the CEREUS Network.
