Miami, FL (Marketwire) Thursday, December 16, 2009 — The festive mood continues at UB.com with the return of UBOC 4, the leading online poker site’s Championship tournament series, from January 20th through 31st, 2010. In the spirit of giving, UB.com has put four shiny new competitions under the UBOC tree, including the Single Event Satellite Contest, and the Super STEP Contest.
There’s no need for ribbons and bows, because the gifts are impressive enough on their own. It’s UBOC’s headline Bubble Buster promotion that’s creating a buzz, and staying in the game after the Bubble bursts is worth up to $1 Million. It’s open to all UBOC participants, and simply cash in 2 or more UBOC events to win anything from a $10,000 Freeroll entry to the $1 Million prize awarded to any player who clocks up 11 cash results during UBOC 4.
Don’t sweat it until January though, because there’s a full UBOC satellite and STEP tournament schedule available now at the leading online poker room. Players can win seats for UBOC events for a much smaller investment, plus several of the unbelievable UBOC side contests are designed to reward participation in UBOC satellites and STEPS.
UBOC’s Single Event Satellite Contest caters to players looking to prove just who’s the king of the cards. Win the most satellite entries for any single UBOC event to receive two times the buy-in for that event in equivalent tournament dollars. Win the second-most entries and you’ll win one extra buy-in in Tournament Dollars.
As an added bonus, the top six multiple satellite entry winners for the Deep Stack NLH 6-Max $2500+100 buy-in UBOC Event stand to pocket extra tournament dollars, with the top dog banking two times the buy-in, and a sliding scale of tournament dollars going to the next five finishers in this contest.
The All-U-Can Satellite Contest requires players to notch up multiple satellite entries in as many different UBOC events as they can to earn more Freeroll entries. There are three different $5,000 Freerolls to qualify for. Satellite into at least two UBOC events and you automatically qualify for Freeroll A, while three UBOC seats won through satellites means entry into Freeroll A and B, and finally 4 or more satellite seats won for UBOC events means the triple treat of securing seats in Freeroll A, B and C, delivering a chance to share in $15,000 in prizemoney.
The Super STEP Contest gives away free tournament entries, including entry into a 25 Seat Guaranteed Freeroll for the UBOC Championship event, plus opportunities to bag a buy-in for the 2010 Aruba Poker Classic. Qualify for any UBOC event via STEP tourneys, and you’re in the running for a range of superb prizes, including a seat at the $1,000+50 buy-in UBOC Championship Event for a real shot at the $1 Million Guaranteed prize pool.
With hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash prizes, freeroll and tournament entries up for grabs in UBOC side competitions, players will find the ultimate stocking stuffers guaranteed to get the New Year started in style.
