January 4, 2010 (PAP PR Wire) — UB.com and AbsolutePoker.com are giving online poker players the chance to soak up the smell of the pigskin this winter with a dedicated tournament series that will award seats at the Super Bowl XLIV. The 2010 Super Bowl gets underway on February 7 in Miami, Florida, and the pair of popular online poker sites is awarding online poker fanatics with the chance to win one of three prestige prize packages for two to the greatest sporting event on the planet.
There’s a trio of spectacular Super Bowl prize packages valued at $12,000 on the line, and all players have to do is tackle their way through the field in one of three Texas Hold ‘em tournaments at either of the CEREUS Poker Network’s online poker rooms, scheduled for Wednesday January 6th, 13th and 20th at 21:30 ET.
Players will be competing for top prize of two tickets to attend the Super Bowl XLIV, where they will watch all the action of the day unfold in true V.I.P. style. The prize package also includes:

Touchdown in top spot to score the major prize, and you’ll be packing your bags for the Sunshine State this February to be part of all the excitement and atmosphere of the big game that has made the annual Super Bowl the most-watched sporting event in the world.
