It's an encore performance as UltimateBet plays host to Scott Ian's Home Game once again August 19 at 9:00 p.m.

Players can win one of 11 exclusive seats in the Anthrax guitarist's online game next to rock legends and poker pros, all playing for a chance to win a trip to the Aruba Poker Classic.

"UltiimateBet players showed huge support for my first 'home game' on UB back in March," said Ian, who played in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event. "With an Aruba Poker Classic package up for grabs this time, expect the competition to be fierce."

The lineup for the game is expected to include Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains, Vinnie Paul of Pantera, Metallica's Kirk Hammett and Greg Tribbett of Mudvayne.

Online players will be able to chat with the musicians throughout using the UltimateBet software's chat feature.

Joining Ian's metal buddies are a few poker legends as well, including 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth and The Celebrity Apprentice's Annie Duke.

Players can win their spot in Scott Ian's Home Game main event qualifier through daily satellites on UltimateBet. Winners will receive automatic entry to the August 18 10,000 UltimatePoints main event, where 10 seats in Scott Ian's Home Game are at stake.

The top five places in Scott Ian's Home Game will be awarded an $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic prize package, and Scott Ian will have a $200 bounty on his head.
