With the kickoff date now less than a week away, buzz is running sky high for the sixth installment of the UBOC poker tournament (UB.com Online Championship).
If you’re a poker affiliate who focuses on the poker tournament niche — or even if you’re not — promoting UBOC6 can be a great conversion tool to help you through those mid-Winter blues.
The two-week-long poker tournament features a whopping 29 events and $5 million in guaranteed cash and prizes leading up to the $1 million guaranteed championship event. It’ll already be on the radar of serious poker players, but newbies may be searching for more info on it. And poker players of all stripes are still likely searching for qualifiers.
Even better for marketers, this is a U.S.-friendly online poker tournament that’s advertised with the kind of loose, cocky cool that appeals to online poker players at their most competitive. “Grab 2011 by the nuts,” say UBOC6 organizers. “Crush the hell out of the online poker tables and win huge sums of money.”
The market reach for UBOC6 continues to expand, with UB.com announcing new tournaments for European players, as well. The UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, and even Turkey all available markets for UB.com poker affiliates. (As well as Canada, Australia, Mexico, and the United States.)
UBOC6 kicks off this Sunday, January 16, leading off with the $500+$30 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack and its $250,000 guarantee. Until January 30, there’ll be at least one other event each and every day — usually as many as three or four events. The headliner will be the $1,050 No Limit Hold’em Monster Stack on January 30.
