Ultimate Bet has always made it easy for online poker players to conquer the tables. Today, they're making it just as easy for them to conquer the ski slopes of the Austrian Alps. Leading online poker room Ultimate Bet today updated its tournament schedule to include qualifiers and Super Satellites for the much-anticipated 2009 PokerNews Cup Alpine event.
