“With UBOC heading into its fourth year and Aruba coming up to year nine, UB now has two amazing series. Whether you are a diehard poker player or a weekend warrior, UBOC and mini UBOC offer something to excite everyone,” stated Annie Duke, UB’s Cardroom Consultant. “Just as Aruba awarded millions in tournament prize money, UBOC 4 is about to break records again, and this year you don’t even have to make a final table to cash big.”
The best part is, UB players don’t have to wait to get in the UBOC mood, because there are easy ways to qualify early for all of the lucrative UBOC events by playing in any of the many UBOC satellites and STEP tournaments available now.
Plus there are four all-new competitions designed to reward players with more chances at extra Freeroll entries, free tournament dollars, and added cash prizes. The Bubble Buster Contest is the ultimate aside to the adrenaline rush of the battle for UBOC supremacy. Cash in more UBOC events to pocket even more cash, with the pinnacle ‘consolation’ prize of $1 million going to any player who can clock up 11 or more cash results in UBOC 4.
Get a kick out of racking up multiple satellite wins, enjoy the challenge of STEP tournaments, or plan on playing a stack of UBOC events? Then the Super STEP Contest, the Single Event Satellite Contest and the All-U-Can Satellite Contest are for you.
UBOC will deliver UB’s biggest online poker tournament series yet, with an exciting calendar of daily events, covering a mix of popular online poker games including No Limit Texas Hold’em, HORSE, Pot Limit Omaha, 8 Game Mix, 4 MAX, 6 MAX, Heads Up and more.
For players looking to get in on the action for less, there are 16 events in a parallel series billed as Mini-UBOC. With the exception of the two $1 million tournaments, each UBOC event will be mirrored by a separate Mini-UBOC event where online poker players can buy in for approximately 10% of the corresponding UBOC event and compete for an attractive prize pool.
The 12-day string of tournaments is tipped to attract the best online poker players from across the globe. It’s all about the game and the competition, so expect the rivalries at the felt to be nothing short of fierce as players vie for the money, the bragging rights and one of a limited edition 2010 UBOC Championship wrist watches, presented to each of the UBOC event Champions.
