Sky Poker Prepares for the £350,000 UKOPS VXII

Sky Poker UKOPS XVII

Sharelines

  • Sky Poker gears up for the £350,000 guaranteed UKOPS XVII, a 43-event festival starting October 28.

Sky Poker’s popular online festival, the UK Online Poker Series, returns Oct. 28 for a 43-event spectacular where more than £350,000 is guaranteed will be won over the course of 10 days.

Now in its 17th edition, the Sky Poker UKOPS promises players a variety of tournament formats including freezeouts, re-buys, deepstacks, and bounty hunters. Buy-ins start at only £22 and increase up to £530, that princely sum being reserved for the £30,000 guaranteed High Roller at 7:30 p.m. UK time on Oct. 30.

There are at least four UKOPS events taking place every day from Oct. 28 through Nov. 6, with one of those daily tournaments being a £110 buy in Main Event in line with that day’s other tournaments.

Winners of each UKOPS event not only win the cash prize assigned to first place, but they also receive a special commemorative UKOPS bracelet.
