Absolute Poker guarantees $4m in UB Online Championship

Tuesday, 3 August 2010

While September may mark London as the place to be for big tournament poker action, August will give every player an excuse to stay online as the CEREUS network announced the UBOC will begin on August 18th with $4,000,000 guaranteed over twenty tournaments.

The twelve-day series will see events ranging from bounty events, heads-up tournaments, PLO, 8-game mix and HORSE culminating in a $1,000 Main Event hosted by UB site leader Phil Hellmuth with $1m guaranteed.

The winner of the UBOC leaderboard and each individual event will not only receive a five- or six-figure prize but will also net the online series’s answer to a bracelet in the shape of a UBOC watch. Multiple cashes will net you anything from a seat into a $10,000 freeroll to a round million dollars if you can make 11 cashes in the events.

Running alongside the high stakes tournaments will be the mini-UBOC with buy-ins one tenth the size. For those of us cash-strapped who want to play with the big boys, a host of satellites to all twenty of the events will be running at UB and Absolute Poker throughout August.
