Ultimate Poker Holds First Championship Tournament

Online Casino GamblingNevada’s first legal online poker site is holding its inaugural “Ultimate Poker Championship (UPC)” from October 10 to 20, guaranteeing as much as $250,000 in cash prizes, inclusive of the $100,000 prize pool for the October 20, $300 buy-in main event. The tournament is open to all Nevada-located Ultimate Poker members with existing verified accounts.

The 11-event tournament comprises nine (9) playoffs for No Limit Hold ’em variations such as deep stack, six-max, turbo and mega-stack (main event), a $50 Limit Hold’em and a $100 Limit Hold’em 6-Max.  All events starts at 6:00 PM with one-hour late registration.

Players emerging as champion from each of these events will receive a custom-made “Ultimate Poker Watch” in addition to his or her share of the cash prize as first-place winner. The overall champion will be the player who garners the highest score based on the finishing position in the UPC 1 Leaderboard for each of the 11 events, and will receive free entries to all events in the succeeding UPC 2 tournament.

Those looking to buy-in at a lower up-front fee can join the $10-satellite held every day at 7:30 PM, which started last October 09 and will end on October 18. These satellites guarantee one ticket for the next day’s scheduled playoff. For the main event, $10, $30 and $60 Sunday-only satellites will run on October 13 and 20, and have guarantees for one added ticket; except for the October 13, $10 Sunday satellite scheduled at 6:30 PM, which guarantees five (5) tickets.
