These daily, guaranteed events culminate in a $1,000,000 guaranteed competition on December 10 where the winner not only cashes in, but plays heads up against Helmuth himself for bragging rights and an additional $10,000.
Live online expert commentary will be provided throughout the event by UltimateBetís poker pros Annie Duke, Shawn Rice, and more. Bluff Radio host Nick Geber will co-host commentary during the championship.
