UB.com’s Mini-UBOC Online Poker Championship to Kick Off

Written by:
Published on:

With the start of UBOC6 less than two weeks away, players with limited available bankroll don’t have to be left out in the cold, because there’s 29 awesome Mini-UBOC events that will mirror all of the main UBOC tournaments, but at a fraction of the cost to buy-in.

The Mini-UBOC schedule has been designed for the small stakes players who still want to participate in the online championship tournament series. Those not flush with fistfuls of dollars can get in on the UBOC action for less with the Mini-UBOC tournament series running alongside the UBOC6 events – same days, and times, with more modest buy-ins, yet surprisingly attractive prize pools to be won.

Plus, Mini-UBOC events will be hosted by a familiar poker room VIP or MVP, and they’ll be names online regulars have chatted with and enjoyed competing against many times before. Highlights of the Mini-UBOC line-up include the launch event on Sunday, January 16th at

14:00 ET, a $50+5 buy-in $25K GTD NLH Deep Stack event hosted by PAPAGEORGIOOO, and the Deepstack NLH 6-Max $50+5 buy-in $25K GTD tourney on Wednesday, January 19th at 20:05 ET hosted by GUIGUI_88.

The Mini-UBOC Championship Monster Stack NLH $50+5 buy-in $50K GTD event will also return, running parallel to the UBOC Championship Main Event on January 30th at 16:00 ET, with TRADEBYDAY stepping into the hosting hot seat. It’s all about the game and the competition as players vie for the money and one of a limited edition UBOC Championship wrist watches, presented to the Mini-UBOC Main Event Champion and the Mini-UBOC Bubble Buster contest winner.

Still looking to ratchet things up a notch? Keep an eye on the satellite schedule for all of the UBOC6 events, including the many satellite feeders for the UBOC6 $1 Million GTD Championship event. UB will host a series of UBOC6 Main Event Multi Seat Satellites ($100+9 buy-in), starting from as low as $3 and $4. These satellite feeders will qualify players for the following UBOC6 Main Event Multi Seat Satellites ($100+9 buy-in):

•         10 Seat GTD         Sunday, January 9th @ 18:00 ET

•         20 Seat GTD         Sunday, January 16th@ 20:30 ET           **NEW TIME**

•         20 Seat GTD         Sunday, January 23rd@ 20:30 ET         **NEW TIME**

•         80 Seat GTD         Sunday, January 30th@ 13:00 ET

So, whatever your poker preference or bankroll, Mini-UBOC and UBOC6 has it covered with an exciting calendar of daily events, and offering a mix of popular online poker games including No Limit Texas Hold'em, HORSE, Pot Limit Omaha, 8-Game Mix, 4-MAX, 6-MAX, Heads Up and more.
