UB is getting 2010 off to a flying start with the addition of four new events relating to its latest UB Online Championship series (UBOC).
Top of the bill is the Bubble Burster. Any player who cashes in at least two UBOC events will win a bonus prize starting with a free seat in a $10,000 freeroll. If a player manages to cash in 11 events then they’ll pick up a $1m bonus. The UBOC Single Event Satellite Contest is offering players a chance to win double the event buy-in if they win the most satellite entries for a single event. The player with the second most entries will one extra buy in-in tournament dollars. The top six multiple entry winners for the six-max $2,500 No Limit Hold Em event will earn some extra cash with the top qualifier taking two-times the buy-in with a sliding scale of cash heading to the next five. Players winning multiple entries in UBOC events can win seats in a number of freeroll tournaments in the All U Can Satellite promotion. There are three different $5,000 Freerolls to qualify for. Satellite into at least two UBOC events and you automatically qualify for Freeroll A, while three UBOC seats won through satellites means entry into Freeroll A and B, and finally 4 or more satellite seats won for UBOC events means the triple treat of securing seats in Freeroll A, B and C, delivering a chance to share in $15,000 in prizemoney. The Super Step Contest is giving away plenty of seats into a variety of events, including entry into a 25-seat guaranteed freeroll for the UBOC Championship event plus the chance to win a seat to the Aruba Classic. The 18-event series runs from 20th to 31st January 2010. For the full schedule see UBOC.
