June 29, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — Stop the parades, hold the picnics and postpone the political speeches for just a bit longer on the Fourth of July, because UB is set to celebrate this U.S. national holiday with a special Independence Day Freeroll at 12:00 ET. The leading online poker site will be lighting some fireworks of its own at the tables, giving away twenty free seats at the Network’s $200,000 Guaranteed tournament on Sunday, July 4th at 16:00 ET.
“What better way to celebrate the freedom we Americans have to play this incredible game than with a 4th of July freeroll,” stated Team UB pro Phil Hellmuth. “I’m proud to be an American, I’m proud to be part of UB, and I’m proud to celebrate Independence Day with the entire poker community at the best poker site around.”
The online poker room is delivering freedom from buy-ins with entry to the 12:00 ET 4th of July ‘Freedom Tournament’ in honor of life, and liberty, and the American way. Twenty lucky players will soon find themselves banking a $200+15 tournament buy-in for nix, plus a chance at a share of the $200K in prize money when they take to the felt in Sunday’s $200,000 Guaranteed tournament at 16:00 ET.
Players who miss out on one of the limited free seats can still take a shot at qualifying for the July 4th $200K GTD for less by participating in a $4 + 0.40 buy-in satellite scheduled for 13:30 ET immediately following the freeroll. UB has guaranteed 20 seats will be awarded to the top 20 finishers in this rebuy event. Both the freeroll and the $4.40 buy-in satellite can be found under the “EVENTS” tab in the UB tournament lobby.
With a total of 40 guaranteed seats up for grabs in the Network’s signature Sunday $200K GTD event, that should be enough incentive for players to clear their Independence Day schedule. Those still looking for more reasons to skip the holiday BBQ can satisfy their hunger with UB’s Double Points Sit & Go Weekend, when players will earn twice as many UltimatePoints (or AbsolutePoints) around the clock, from 00:00 ET on Saturday, July 3rd until 23:59 ET on Sunday, July 4th. So, log on early this holiday weekend to take advantage of a full 48 hours of bonus loyalty rewards and the ‘Freedom Tournaments’ at UB.com.
Plus, as part of the CEREUS Poker Network, players at Absolute Poker can also get in on the American Independence Day action. Players at both online poker rooms will enjoy double UltimatePoints and AbsolutePoints, along with free entries and low limit buy-in satellite seats for the $200K GTD tournament on the CEREUS Poker Network – and they don’t even have to know all the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner” to score.
