Miami, FL (PRWeb) September 22, 2009 – You don’t have to wait outside of Buckingham Palace to spot royalty in London. UltimateBet’s Phil Hellmuth, arguably one of the kings of the bandar slot pulsa world, will make his grand entrance to this year’s World Series of Poker Europe on Saturday, September 26th, 2009 at The Casino of the Empire, located at 5-6 Leicester Square.
While it’s not yet clear exactly what Phil Hellmuth will do, if this summer’s WSOP entrance in Vegas is any indication, his London entrance will be one of the biggest highlights of the tournament.
Dressed as Julius Caesar, Hellmuth made his way to the Rio in Las Vegas for the WSOP protected by Roman guards and surrounded by muses throwing rose petals, all of who were outfitted only in body paint. The over-the-top entrance was in keeping with UltimateBet’s 2009 WSOP theme. Celebrating its 10th anniversary dealing cards online, the online poker site invited poker players to join its empire in Vegas and compete for a $10 million Main Event bonus.
Phil Hellmuth doesn’t reserve his grand entrances exclusively for Las Vegas. In 2008, UltimateBet held a Phil Hellmuth lookalike contest and invited London locals to show up to the WSOPE dressed as the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner.
In 2007, Phil Hellmuth grabbed the European media spotlight once again as he toured London’s most famous sights aboard a Hellmuth-branded double-decker bus, accompanied by 12 models.
Poker fans in the UK are invited to join Phil Hellmuth for his grand entrance at 12:30pm on Saturday, September 26th, 2009 at 5-6 Leicester Square. Those who are unable to attend can read about Hellmuth’s entrance on UltimateBet’s blog, which can be found on the UltimateBet website.

Ivan Demidov has proven his skill in more ways than one. Not only is he part of the 2008 World Series of Poker’s November Nine, but he also made the final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker Europe’s Main Event. That is amazing! This is the first time a player has been a final tablist for both the WSOP and WSOPE Main Event. While we won’t know the results for the WSOP until November, Demidov survived some of the toughest competition to place third in Europe.
In his final hand, Demidov’s straight and flush draw was called out by John Juanda’s pocket aces. Demidov took home a nice £334,850. John Juanda now leads Stanislav Alekhin in the heads-up battle for the bracelet.
Come November 9th, Demidov will start the WSOP Main Event final table standing in second place for the chip lead. If he can keep his current standing, he’ll walk away with $5,790,024. However, second place is not what any poker player strives for. The real prize is first place for $9,119,517 and the WSOP Main Event bracelet. Just over five weeks remain until the final table can be played out.
Ivan Demidov is relatively new to the poker profession. In addition to the two Main Events, Demidov also placed in 11th place in the 2008 WSOP $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em rebuy event. His accomplishment is astounding for anyone, especially for someone that others may still refer to as a rookie. Rookie or not, Demidov has proven he has what it takes.
