UBOC Online Poker Tournament Satellites Underway
July 14, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB has unveiled details of the upcoming 2010 UBOC5 schedule, while also launching UBOC satellites to qualify early for all of the lucrative UBOC events running from August 18th through 29th. This year’s follow up UBOC series boasts a super impressive line-up of 20 guaranteed online poker events, including the $1000+50 buy-in $1 million GTD NLH Championship and three new events. Also, the Mini-UBOC schedule will mirror all 20 UBOC events but at a fraction of the buy-ins, and provides the chance for ALL PLAYERS to earn their share of over $4 million in combined tournament guarantees and competition prize money.
Whatever your poker preference or bankroll, UBOC5 has it covered with an exciting calendar of daily events, each one hosted by a Team UB pro player, and offering a mix of popular online poker games including No Limit Texas Hold’em, HORSE, Pot Limit Omaha, 8-Game Mix, 4-MAX, 6-MAX, Heads Up and more.
Highlights of the Summer UBOC series include the $1 million GTD NLH Championship event hosted by the legendary Phil Hellmuth on Sunday, August 29th at 16:00 ET, and the all-new $200+15 buy-in $100K GTD Pro Bounty NLH Turbo event hosted by the entire Team UB on Saturday August 21st at 16:00 ET.
“With the WSOP on hiatus until November, poker players don’t have to look far to get their big series fix,” stated Annie Duke, UB’s Cardroom Consultant. “UBOC 5 is really shaping up to be UB’s best online poker series yet, offering the excitement of a major land-based event no matter what your bankroll is.”
UB’s ‘extra-curricular’ contests will also return. Designed to reward players with added cash prizes, tournament dollars, and freeroll entries, they’re back due to popular demand. Introduced during UBOC4 earlier this year, the Bubble Buster Contest is the ultimate aside to the battle for UBOC domination. Cash in more UBOC events to pocket extra cash, with a staggering $1 million going to any player who can clock up 11 or more cash results throughout the run of UBOC5.
Also, win as many seats as possible for any single UBOC event in the Single Event Satellite Contest to pocket extra prizes in tournament dollars. In the All-U-Can Satellite Contest, satellite into two or more separate UBOC events to earn entries into exclusive $5K freerolls. Any player who successfully satellites into 17 or more different UBOC events will automatically win a seat into the $1 Million GTD Championship Main Event ($1050 buy-in). Please see (this link) for all the details.
For players looking to get in on the action for less, there are 20 events in a parallel series tagged as Mini-UBOC. Each UBOC tournament will be mirrored by a separate Mini-UBOC event where online players can buy in for a fraction of the corresponding UBOC event and compete for an attractive prize pool. UB has even added the all-new Mini-UBOC Championship Monster Stack NLH $50+5 buy-in $50K GTD event running concurrently with the UBOC Championship Main Event on August 29th at 16:00 ET.
The 12-day string of tournaments is touted to attract the best online poker players from across the globe. It’s all about the game and the competition as players vie for the money, the bragging rights and one of a limited edition 2010 UBOC Championship wrist watches, presented to each of the UBOC event Champions, to the Mini-UBOC Main Event Champion, as well as the Mini-UBOC Leaderboard winner.
Players eager to test their UBOC skills now should check the “SATELLITES” tab in the UB tournament lobby for the full UBOC satellite schedule.
