UBOC6 Satellites up and running

UBOC6 Satellites up and running

Wednesday, 29 December 2010

The sixth incarnation of Ultimate Bet's Online Championship (UBOC) is just weeks away now and the site is giving players the chance to get in on the action at a fraction of the cost in a series of satellites.

UBOC 6 starts on 16th January 2010 with the top attraction the $1,000+$50 No Limit Hold Em Championship event on 30th January which will feature a guaranteed prize pool of $1m. UB.com is hosting a quintet of multi seat qualifiers with at least 135 seats on offer. The first of these $100+$90 satellites takes place on 2nd January with further qualifiers set for 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th January.

UB.com is also running a pair of side competitions for UBOC6, the Single Event Satellite Challenge and the Multi-Satellite Winner Challenge, offering the ‘ultimate test to those who are committed satellite enthusiasts’.

The Single Event Satellite Challenge requires players to bag as many seats as possible for any single UBOC6 event to pocket extra prizes. For example, a competitor that wins five satellites into the $1,050 buy-in UBOC Championship final will receive one tournament entry and $4,200 in Event Dollars. In addition, the top three players to win more entries than anyone else for that event will each receive an additional buy-in in tournament dollars.

The Multi-Satellite Winner Challenge requires players to score multiple satellite entries into as many different UBOC6 events as possible. UB.com revealed that players only need to satellite into two events to win entry into a $10,000 freeroll while a trio will get them a seat at the Ecocard $10,000 guaranteed game. Entries into four events will get a player a ticket into the $66 buy-in $10,000 guaranteed no-limit hold’em deepstack tournament while all prizes are set to be cumulative.

“Players can get excited about the UBOC6 action now without delay,” read a statement from UB.com. “There's already a big chunk of freeroll cash and tournament dollars to be won and plenty of UBOC6 main event tournament entries up for grabs at UB.com.”
