Ultimate Bet announces schedule for UBOC 6; $4.6m guaranteed

Tuesday, 21 December 2010

Ultimate Bet have announced the sixth UB.com Online Championship which will begin on January 16 with a $250,000 guaranteed $530 NL deepstack event and run across the next two weeks, providing 29 events with a total guarantee of over $4,600,000.

With Phil Hellmuth’s status as a UB pro still disputed, Joe Sebok at least will be flying the sponsored player flag at the UBOC 6 after he wrote that “after those New Year’s hangovers wear off, get back on UB.com because it’s time for UBOC 6. The UBOCs are my favorite online tournament series because they just keep getting bigger and bigger every time out. Now, if I can just figure out how to win an event, the excitement will be complete.”

Good news for us guys over on the good side of the Atlantic, too – a fair few events of UBOC 6 are beginning at 16.00 ET (9pm GMT) which means that we won’t have to be up all night if we want to play these events. Among those tournaments with a Euro-friendly start time are a $320 Bounty NL event, a $215 NL Turbo 3x Chance and the Deep Stack High Roller that carries a $2,100 buy-in and a $750,000 guarantee.

The final event of the series is a Monster Stack event with a hefty $1,050 entrance fee – though UB.com are running satellites on the cheap for those of us who don’t fancy putting four figures into a donkament.
