Life isn’t over once the WSOP finds the November Nine. On the contrary, the poker world is full of chip slamming attitude every day, all day long, and you’ll find reasons to celebrate that fact as UB Poker kicks off their fifth UB Online Championship running from August 18th – 29th. On the menu are 20 guaranteed online poker events and a $1,000,000 guaranteed No Limit Championship along with three new events. The Mini-UBOC will mirror all 20 UBOC events and provides the opportunity for all players to pull up a chair for a share of over $4,000,000 in combined competition prize money and tournament guarantees.
The added contests to the UBOC5 should give every player a reason to be there. The most interesting and lucrative is the challenge of making the cash 11 or more times throughout the run of the UBOC5 – that feat will put $1,000,000 in your poker account. There are other contests worth playing for but that One Million looks mighty tasty and is very feasible. What will they do in case of a tie? Unknown at this time.
The events offered at the UBOC5 are No Limit Holdem, Pot Limit Omaha, 8-Game Mix, 4-MAX, 6-MAX, Heads Up, and more. The $1,000,000 GTD NLH Championship will be hosted by UB’s own glory hound Phil Hellmuth on Sunday August 29th at 16:00 ET. And look for the entire Team UB to host a new $200+15 buy-in $100K GTD Pro Bounty NLH Turbo Event. There’s still more, check it out when you are in the Poker Lobby.
“With the WSOP on hiatus until November, poker players don’t have to look far to get their big series fix,” stated Annie Duke, UB's Cardroom Consultant. “UBOC 5 is really shaping up to be UB’s best online poker series yet, offering the excitement of a major land-based event no matter what your bankroll is.”
