May 26, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB.com is gearing up to hand out at least 25 Main Event packages to players in the World Series of Poker* (“WSOP*”) 25 Package Guaranteed Super Satellite, a $500+30 buy-in event scheduled for Sunday, June 6th at 16:00 ET. The leading online poker site guarantees that a minimum of 25 players will earn a $12,000 package for the 2010 WSOP*Main Event in the June 6th Super Satellite, so get in on the action, with qualifier buy-ins starting from as low as $10+1.
Whether players satellite their way to the 2010 WSOP* in UB’s 25 Package GTD Super Satellite, a weekly Super Satellite, or all the way from a $0.10 Step tournament, the result is still the same; all UB online qualifiers who show up in Vegas to play for Team UB in the Main Event automatically earn their fair share of the ‘Show Up, Get Paid’ progressive prize pool, currently tipping the scales at a mammoth $350,000 based on 70 qualifiers to date. If 51-plus of these qualifiers turn up at the Rio and take to the felt in the Main Event, UB adds $5,000 per player to the progressive prize pool, with each receiving a minimum $3,750 in cash (75% of the potential $255K prize pool). UB qualifiers who go on to cash in the Main Event also share in the remaining 25% of the progressive prize pool.
To qualify for UB’s WSOP* 25 Package GTD Super Satellite, players can either buy-in directly for $500+30, or choose to enter any of the many daily satellite feeders currently running online at UB, from the $10+1 rebuys to the $55+5 freezeouts.
Miss out on earning a seat in the lead up to the WSOP* 25 Package GTD Super Satellite, and there’s still one more shot at qualifying for less on the day. On Sunday, June 6th at 13:00 ET, a $60+6 buy-in 50 Seat GTD Satellite feeder to the 16:00 ET 25 Seat Package GTD Super Satellite will run at UB.com, plus there’s hundreds of qualifiers to this $60+6 buy-in starting from as little as $3.
