Sky Poker Xmas UKOPS starts today

Thursday, 27 December 2012

Following the success of its recent UK Online Poker Series (UKOPS) IV competition in the autumn, Sky Poker has unveiled details of a special Christmas edition of its popular tournament series.

Scheduled to run for four days from 27 December, the Xmas UKOPS series will feature 16 events with buy-ins ranging from as low as £2.20 up to £110 with a guaranteed total of £166,000 in cash prizes to be won.

“Once again there will be satellites into each of the Xmas UKOPS events allowing players of even the smallest bankroll to take their shot at the big prizes,” read a statement from Sky Poker.

“The Xmas UKOPS main event semis will run every night until the day itself at 9pm. The semi buy-in is £24 but don’t fret if that's still too much as there will be satellites into the 9pm tournament running from as little as £2.70, which means you could qualify for just a few pounds.”

Top of the bill is the £110 buy-in Xmas UKOPS main event which takes place at 8pm on 30 December promising a total prize pool of £40,000. Players can also try and stake a claim in a £10,000 prize pool in a special bounty event that starts an hour later.

The full series schedule is available by visiting the Xmas UKOPS page.

New players can join Tikay, James Hartigan, Sarah Champion and Jen Mason and the rest of the Sky Poker TV team with a free £10 and a free entry into a £10,000 freeroll. Sign up at
