A total of 53 UB Poker Online Players who earned their way to the 2010 World Series of Poker for their skillful play also received a handsome sum of bonus cash courtesy of the UB Show Up, Get Paid Promotion. In total, the qualifiers shared an extra $265,000. Not only did they have the opportunity to enjoy playing in the live poker event of a lifetime, but they pocketed at least $3,750 simply for showing up to the World Series of Poker festivities.

The players who qualified and made it to Las Vegas to take their seat in the World Series of Poker Main Event had to only ‘show up’ and grab their seat while wearing UB branded logo gear and they were instant winners! It was just that simple for them to claim their share of the $265,000 progressive prize pool and they didn’t even need to finish in the money during the World Series of Poker Championship event to walk away from the tables an automatic winner!

Team UB pro player Adam Levy, who finished in the highest position among UB pros at 12th place in the 2010 Main Event commented, “This promotion is amazing and even if you bust out on the first hand, you still make good money.” He went on to say, “To someone who started from Step 1 at UB and worked it all the way up, that’s a considerable chunk of change.”

Among the Team UB players who were a part of the new look and style unveiled at this year’s World Series of Poker, there were four who cashed in the Main Event and each one added a mega bonus to their bankroll totaling $20,312.50. Those who excelled in their accomplishments included Chris Bolt who finished in 53rd place, cashing for $168,556, plus his Show up bonus of $20,312.50 gave him a total of $188,868.50!  Meenakshi Subramaniam also reaped some extra rewards when he finished in 67th place for a cash win of $114,205 plus a bonus of $20,312.50 for a total of $134,517.50.  And then Michael Adamo finished in 564th place and took home $24,079 plus $20,312.50 making his total winnings $44,391.50. He was followed by Donald Himpele who ended his tournament play in 725th place for winnings of $19,263 plus $20,312.50 and pocketed a total of $39,575.50.

In addition to four online qualifiers cashing in at this year’s World Series of Poker, a total of three Team UB Pros including Adam Levy, Eric Baldwin, and Brandon Cantu all played their way into the money. And Friends of UB Shawn Rice and Jon Friedberg also cashed which makes these UB poker players combined winnings at the WSOP total more than $1.2 million. These impressive totals resulted in several career best performances in a tournament among the huge playing field of 7,319 that battled on the green felt for over two weeks.
