UBOC5 will give out over $4 Million in Guaranteed Money

The end of summer is usually a sad occasion since it marks the time when people have to start raking leaves, wear warmer clothing, and pretend they’re not home when Trick or Treaters come around.  However, the end of summer is a joyous occasion for those who play poker at Ultimate Bet because this is when they hold the UB Online Championship – a.k.a. UBOC.

The fifth installment of the UBOC will run from August 18th to August 29th, and will offer 20 tournaments with the culmination being a $1,000,000 Guaranteed Championship poker tournament.  And for those holdem poker players who are still working on building up their bankroll, the Mini UBOC will offer cheaper tournaments that mirror the regular UBOC.

Altogether, the combined prize pools will offer players over $4,000,000 in guaranteed cash, which is sure to make some internet poker players very rich people.  As if the $4 million-plus isn’t enough money, Ultimate Bet is also offering a side contest where an online poker player who cashes in at least 11 tournaments will be given an additional $1,000,000.  That’s right, if you can cash in the most tournaments during UBOC5 (11 minimum), you will win $1 million!

Some of the poker games that will be offered in UBOC5 include texas poker, Omaha, Mixed Hold’em, Heads-Up, and 6-Max.  As mentioned before, the championship will offer $1 million in guaranteed money along with the chance to play poker hands against Phil Hellmuth.  Wouldn’t it be great to read Hellmuth’s whiny chat box messages after busting him out of the tourney?

Those interested in playing in UBOC5 should know that satellites and free poker tournaments have already started for the event.  Of course, you can also wait until the scheduled starting times of each tournament and just buy directly in.  Also keep in mind that you’ll be collecting 30% in rakeback money while playing satellites and regular UBOC tourneys.
