Ultimate Bet giving away WPT Festa al Lago Prize Packages

Every World Poker Tour tournament is huge, but the WPT Festa al Lago event is definitely one of the biggest.  In fact, the 2009 Festa al Lago poker tournament offered over $4 million in prize money, and winner Tommy Vedes walked away with $1,218,225.
