This week marks the kickoff of the fourth Ultimate Bet Online Championship, where thousands of tournament enthusiasts will compete alongside UB's roster of pros for over $4 million in guaranteed prize money. This edition of the UBOC features 18 events over 11 days, each hosted by a UB pro.
No-limit hold'em events dominate the schedule, but pot-limit Omaha and mixed games get their days in the sun as well. An 8-Game Mix of H.O.R.S.E., PLO, NLHE and PLO8 was featured as one of last night's opening duo of events while a pot-limit hold'em/PLO/PLO8 event dubbed the "Pot Limit Championship" is on the docket for Money.
UBOC buy-ins range from a $109 freezeout to a $2,600 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max Deep Stack event. Of course, there are many ways to qualify for far less, from freerolls to UltimatePoints tournaments to "step" satellites. To have a look at the complete schedule head here.
Bankroll looking a little lean? There's always the Mini-UBOC, which runs right alongside its big brother. All Mini-UBOC tournaments go off at the same time as their UBOC counterparts, just at around 10 percent of the buy-in.
If you're one of those "serial min-cashers," the UBOC has a promotion right up your alley. It's called the Bubble Buster, and it's as simple as this. Cash in 11 or more UBOC4 events, win a million dollars. Cash in 10, win $100,000. Cash in 9, you'll be bought in to both the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event and the 2010 Aruba Poker Classic. Prizes and freerolls are available for players who cash in as few as two UBOC4 events. Now that's some serious added value.
