Posted on by RTR Rachel

If you’re looking for poker tournaments with great value and small buy-ins, then look no further than the Mini UBOC 2011 at UB Poker. Mini UBOC 2011 will run from April 10th to April 17th, and it will offer $650,000 across 27 poker tournaments.

Besides being able to earn 30% rakeback deals through UB, the highlight of Mini UBOC will be the $100,000 Guaranteed Main Event. The buy-in for the Main Event poker tournament is $75 + $7, and if you’ve ever played in $100k tourneys before, this is an incredibly cheap buy-in. Even if this is out of your buy-in range, there are currently satellites and free poker tournaments running for the Main Event and other Mini UBOC tourneys.

Speaking of the other events, here is a look at some of the big poker games in the Mini UBOC (all times are ET):

– April 10th at 14:05: $50,000 Guaranteed NLHE Deep Stack tournament, $50 + $5 buy-in.
– April 10th at 16:05: $30,000 Guaranteed Sniper NLHE ($5 bounty), $30 + $3 buy-in.
– April 11th at 20:05: $40,000 Guaranteed NLHE Deep Stack, $50 + $5 buy-in.
– April 13th at 20:05: $50,000 Guaranteed NLHE Deep Stack w/antes, $50 + $5 buy-in.

Every Mini UBOC tournament will be fairly large since no prize pool offers less than $10k. In addition to the big tournaments, UB Poker is also throwing in some great bonuses including the following:

– If you cash in three Mini UBOC tournaments, you’ll receive an entry into a $10,000 freeroll.
– Any player who busts out of a Mini UBOC 2011 tournament on the bubble receives $50 to play poker in another Mini UBOC tourney.
– Players who finish in the top 50 of the Main Event receive an automatic seat into the weekly $200k Guaranteed.

The biggest bonus will no doubt be the $12,000 WSOP Main Event prize package that’s being offered to the player who cashes in the most Mini UBOC tourneys. And this person will also be eligible for the $1 million sponsorship bonus that UB is offering anybody who wins the Main Event through them.
Tip of the Day: “Mini” events like the Mini UBOC give players with small bankrolls a much better chance to compete for big prize pools. For example, the Mini UBOC lets players compete in the $100,000 Main Event for $75 + $7; the average online poker room doesn’t offer buy-ins lower than $100 + $9 for a $100k tournament.
