ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN Announces 'Home Game' Online Poker Tournament

Get ready to rock the UltimateBet poker tables in the encore performance of Scott Ian's Home Game, an online poker tournament set to take place August 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Swap your guitar chips for poker chips to win one of 11 exclusive seats in ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian's Home Game where you could find yourself seated next to rock legends and poker pros, and shooting for the stars in the ultimate rock 'n roll sit-and-go for a trip to the Aruba Poker Classic.

"UltiimateBet players showed huge support for my first 'home game' on UB back in March," said UltimateBet pro Scott Ian, who was reached for comment on a break from play during the 2009 World Series of Poker main event. "With an Aruba Poker Classic package up for grabs this time, expect the competition to be fierce."

The star-studded lineup in Scott Ian's Home Game is headlined by Ian, Jerry Cantrell of ALICE IN CHAINS, Vinnie Paul of PANTERA, METALLICA's Kirk Hammett and Greg Tribbett of MUDVAYNE, who are set to put their own unique metal edge on the UB Hold 'em tables, where online poker players will be able to chat with the rock stars through the UltimateBet software's chat feature.

Rounding out the list of poker legends featured in the Texas Hold'em tournament are 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth and world poker champion Annie Duke.

Online poker players are invited to secure their spot in Scott Ian's Home Game main event qualifier via daily satellites at 10:30 p.m. ET for as little as 1000 UltimatePoints, with each one paying out one seat for every ten players entered. Winners will receive automatic entry to the August 18 10,000 UltimatePoints main event, where 10 seats in Scott Ian's Home Game are at stake. One additional seat will be offered up to UB's VIP players through a special invitation-only online poker freeroll.

The top five places in Scott Ian's Home Game will be awarded a range of prizes and tournament entries, including an $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic prize package to go to the Home Game champion, plus Scott Ian will have a $200 bounty on his head. The 18-player Sit-and-Go is sure to fill even faster this time around, and with only 11 seats available exclusively at UltimateBet, players should be quick to get in on the action.
