Mini-UBOC Ready to Kick Off with $650,000 Guaranteed!
Posted at 19:17 2011-04-08
The Ultimate Bet Online Championship (UBOC) successfully awarded millions of dollars to its participants earlier this year, but with the buy-ins sitting at the hundreds, many bankrolls had to sit on the rail and watch in envy. This is where the mini-UBOC comes into play, with championship tournaments featuring big fields and big prize pools, coming to the virtual felt this April.
Beginning on April 10th the mini-UBOC will run on the Cereus network across both Absolute Poker and UB Poker with $650,000 guaranteed in tournaments across several poker disciplines running throughout the eight-day series.
Buy-ins will vary from the mini-UBOC#17 $11 re-buy event on April 15th to the $82 mini-UBOC Championship event with a $100,000 guaranteed being run on April 17th.
If the buy-in seems a little steep for your bankroll or you’re simply looking for a cheap way to make a big-score then don’t forget to look at all the satellites which are currently running on the sites. You will even be able to buy-in using Absolute Points or UB Status Points which can be earned from playing in any real money games across either of the sites.
For those itching for more action and excitement look no further then the mini-UBOC Contests which will be held across the series.
The first contest is called King of Cashing, whereby the player who makes it into the cash in the most tournaments across the 27 mini-UBOC events will take home a $12,000 World Series of Poker Main Event package. The Triple Pay Challenge will send every player who manages to cash in three or more mini-UBOC events to play in a $10,000 cash freeroll and the Bubble Bailout contest will ensure that every “bubble boy” across the series won’t go home empty handed, with the player who finishes one player away from the money scoring $50. The final mini-UBOC contest is called the Championship Bonus, which will see the players who finish in the top 50 of the mini-UBOC Championship event going home with a $215 ticket into the Sunday $200,000 guaranteed tournament.
If the above isn’t enough to sway you into hitting the tables then maybe the bounties on the Cereus Poker Network Pros will have you taking to the virtual felt. Knock out any of the UB or Absolute Poker pros such as Maria Ho, Joe Sebok or Trishelle Cannatella and you will receive your buy-in for that tournament back into your account. Also, if you make it all the way to the final table you will be going home with officially branded merchandise such as a Cereus Network hat or t-shirt.
With the mini-UBOC starting in just a few days and satellites running now, you better get moving and download UB Poker now or download Absolute Poker now.
