UB.com Announces New Qualifiers for 2010 WSOP
May 3, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) – Online poker players will feel like a winner when they qualify for the 2010 World Series of Poker* (“WSOP”) at UB.com, because they automatically become part of Team UB, one of the most successful posses of poker players on the planet right now, and the kicker is, they also earn extra cash just to turn up and play in Las Vegas.
Team UB pros are some of the biggest names in the game today, and are currently crushing the tournament tables across the globe. Get a taste of the pro poker lifestyle at this year’s WSOP* with Team UB to feel like a champion, because the online poker site will reward UB qualifiers with at least $1,000 in cash just for showing up in Sin City.
UB’s innovative Show Up, Get Paid online poker promotion asks their qualifiers to turn up, take their seat at the WSOP* Main Event, and wear the UB logo. That’s all that’s required to claim a share of the progressive prize pool that grows as the number of UB players in the Main Event increases – and they don’t even have to cash to claim the bonus. There’s a maximum $5,000 bonus per head to be added to the cash prize pool if 51-plus qualifiers play in poker’s ‘Big Dance’. Go on to tear up the tables, and there’s also a final table sponsorship deal on the cards worth up to $750,000 just for representing UB in the November Nine.
If ever there’s a year to be part of Team UB, 2010 is it. At every turn of the cards, Team UB pros continue to run hot in the lead-up to the WSOP*; think Annie Duke’s stellar performance to take out the 2010 National Heads Up Poker Championship title, and Liv Boeree’s stunning $1.7 million payday against the biggest ever EPT field in San Remo, Italy.
The first quarter of 2010 has seen a stream of Team UB pros on fire at the felt, including dual WSOP* bracelet holder Brandon Cantu who proved he “can do” yet again with his $363,000 Wynn Classic Main Event win in March, and Card Player’s 2009 Player of the Year, Eric “basebaldy” Baldwin, adding another $1 million result to his career C.V. with a runner-up finish in this year’s WPT World Championship at the Bellagio.
Join Team UB to run with the cool crowd in Vegas. Leader of the UB pro pack is the legendary Phil Hellmuth, who’ll be rocking the Rio larger than life and hungry for his record 12th WSOP* bracelet win. The 2010 WSOP* could be the charm for the extraordinary poker pro, with renowned mindset coach Sam Chauhan in his head, and the ever-tiltable Hellmuth’s newfound sense of ‘zen’ to call on. Whatever the outcome, hanging with Hellmuth as part of Team UB promises to be nothing short of entertaining, educational, and a whole new level of exciting.
It’s all part of the unique experience that awaits every UB qualifier who takes the punt and heads to Vegas to be part of Team UB for the 2010 WSOP*.
While the WSOP* Main Event doesn’t officially begin until July 5th, WSOP* action has already started at UB.com. The popular online poker room is making it easier for players to win their Main Event seat with Step tournaments for just 10 cents and $500+30 buy-in Weekly Super Satellites on Sundays at 18:05 ET and on Wednesdays at 20:30 ET, which are fed by daily qualifiers.
