UBOC6 Online Poker Satellites Launch Today

December 19, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB.com will deliver the goods all over again with the sixth running of the UB Online Championship (“UBOC”) from January 16th through 30th, 2011. Kick start the New Year with UBOC6 and $5 Million in prize money to be dealt out to players across 29 events — each one hosted by a Team UB Pro — over 15 days of blockbuster online poker action.

This UBOC series will deliver a super exciting line-up of guaranteed online poker events, with nine of them totally new to the roster, culminating in the UBOC Championship Monster Stack NLH $1000+50 buy-in on January 30th that will fork out at least $1 Million.

UBOC6 will require all the competitive edge players can find, and now is the perfect time to sharpen those silky skills at the felt, because Satellites for UBOC6 start this Sunday, December 19th. They say ‘practice makes perfect,’ so get back in the swing of running hot in the game by playing UBOC Satellites and qualify early for many UBOC events, plus be dollar smart about it.

“Not too long after those New Year’s hangovers wear off, get back on UB because it’s time for UBOC6! The UBOC’s are my favorite online tournament series because they just keep getting bigger and bigger every time out,” said Team UB’s Joe Sebok. “Now, if I can just figure out how to win an event, the excitement will be complete.”

The $2000+100 buy-in High Roller NLH Deep stack $750K GTD tourney on January 23rd is fresh to the calendar of daily events, while those less flush with cash are well catered for with Mini-UBOC and five UBOC events that cost $150+12 to enter, but still offer a healthy $75K or $50K guaranteed prize pool.

The Mini-UBOC series will mirror all 29 UBOC events at a fraction of the buy-ins, giving low-stakes players a shot at their own share of plenty of attractive prize pools. There’s even a Mini-UBOC Championship event on at the same time as the big UBOC showstopper; it’s a $50 buy-in with $50K GTD prize money, plus the winner will walk away with some serious cash, a UBOC Championship watch and the prestige.

An enhanced UBOC6 tournament schedule adds the NLH/PLO Mix on January 25th at 20:05 ET but players keen for something more amped up will discover two NLH Deep Stack Ultra Turbo tourneys on Sundays at 18:30 ET. European players can also now join the mid-week UBOC action, with an earlier 16:05 ET timeslot added on Wednesdays.

Team UB Pro and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, along with his rocker buddies, will return to host the massively popular Rock Star Bounty event on January 17th at 20:05 ET. Still on the theme of novelty events, one that’s sure to get pulses racing is the all-new NLH Centerfold Bounty on January 27th at 20:05 ET with a bevy of bootylicious centerfold models stepping up to the plate.

Crush the competition in two of the four UBOC Challenges that require players to participate in multiple Satellites — the UBOC Single Event Satellite Challenge and the UBOC Multi-Satellite Winner Challenge, where there’s Tournament Dollars, tourney seats and freeroll entries up for grabs. Satellites start this Sunday, December 19th. Check the “SATELLITES” tab in the UB tournament lobby for the full UBOC Satellite schedule.

The UBOC King of Cashing Challenge and the parallel Mini-UBOC King of Cashing Challenge will reward players who demonstrate excellence across the entire series; rack up the most UBOC cashes to pocket Event Dollars and limited edition 2011 UBOC Championship wristwatches.

In a nutshell, UBOC6 is designed for players of all levels, from the high roller to those with more modest bankrolls, offering a range 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.
