Leading online poker room UB.com has announced that it will be holding satellite competitions next month to award multiple seats into the final event of the sixth edition of its UB.com Online Championship (UBOC) tournament series.
The closing $1,050 buy-in UBOC6 Championship Monster Stack no-limit hold’em event will take place on January 30 featuring a total prize pool at least one million dollars but UB.com is set to hold five satellite competitions next month awarding at least 135 spots.
Players can buy-in to these satellites for $109 with the first set to take place on January 2 from six o’clock in the afternoon New York time awarding five places. Subsequent events will take place on January 9, 16 and 23 from the same time while a final satellite will kick off on January 30 from one o’clock in the afternoon promising 80 seats.
“With only a little over three weeks to go until the first cards are dealt in UBOC6, the time is right for players to get excited about earning their online Championship seats at a fraction of the cost,” read a statement from UB.com released late last week.
“There are at least five separate multi-seat satellites scheduled for players to parlay their way into the January 30 $1050 buy-in no-limit hold’em Championship tournament for a much more modest $109 or check out the many satellite feeders for these starting as low as a tiny three dollars.”
In addition, UB.com stated that it is currently 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 snare as many seats as possible for any single UBOC6 event to pocket extra prizes. As an 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 Togel 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.
“So, players can get excited about the UBOC6 action now without delay,” read the 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.”
