UB.com Pays Online Poker Players Just to Show Up in Vegas for Main Event

There’s nothing bigger in the world of Texas Hold ‘em than the World Series of Poker* (“WSOP”), and the easiest way for players to make their way to Vegas to be part of that tournament rush is to win a seat online.  This year UB.com, the cool crew to hang with in Sin City, is giving players a shot at millions in dollars and Main Event glory with its 2011 WSOP satellite schedule and a revamped Show Up, Get Paid promotion, set to kick up the stakes a notch, from Sunday, March 6th.

Qualify on UB by winning a 2011 WSOP* Main Event Package worth $12K,  either all the way from a 10 cent STEP 1 tournament, or by crushing the competition in one of the many $500+30 buy-in Super Satellites from March 6th to July 3rd ( satellite qualifiers for as low as $10 will run for every $500+30 Super Satellite). Plus, UB will host two 25-seat Guaranteed tournaments at 16:00 ET on Sunday, June 12th and on Sunday June 26th, set to award at least 50 WSOP* Main Event packages across the pair of big seat giveaways.

"With Show Up, Get Paid we are making it even easier for our players to make their way to Vegas for the WSOP in 2011, plus there’s so many different ways for players to qualify,” said Team UB’s Joe Sebok. “The Team UB crew will be out in full force this Summer so you never know, you may wind up chatting poker with Prahlad Friedman or sharing strategy in the UB suite with Maria Ho or Eric Baldwin.  Be sure to win your seat on UB and get there!"

It makes no difference how a player wins their seat, just as long as they do it at UB.com. The online poker site is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table through its Show Up, Get Paid promotion. Qualify at UB.com, turn up at the tables in Las Vegas, and take a seat in the Main Event sporting the UB brand;  you automatically bank the $1,000 cash bonus even if your Aces get cracked, you suffer a bead beat and bust early on -  just for showing up, and all before the cards are even in the air.

There’ll be no exiting empty-handed, because that $1,000 is guaranteed, and it keeps on growing as a player runs deeper into the action of the world’s richest annual poker marathon, awarding up to $20,000 for surviving the competition long enough to make it to Day 8 of play.

There’s also more money up for grabs in the form of a final table sponsorship deal to players who go deep enough to score a place in the November Nine. No matter how much longer a player survives this final fling at the felt, there’s extra money to pocket, up to a cool $1 Million just by representing UB at the WSOP* final table.

Rounding out the list of Vegas promotions is a competition that makes it worthwhile for poker players to win multiple $12,000 WSOP* prize packages. The “King of Satellites” leaderboard competition will award over $10,000 in Tournament Dollars to the top 5 players who win the most Main Event seats. The extra Tournament Dollars are in addition to the $12,000 in cash that players will receive for each extra seat won.

So, there’s no doubt about it, Team UB will have the edge at this year’s WSOP*. Qualify for the Main Event at UB.com to experience the ultimate Texas Hold’em tournament on the world’s biggest stage, and hang with some of the game’s best-known pros, including Team UB Pros Joe Sebok, Prahlad Freidman, Eric Baldwin, Brandon Cantu, Adam Levy and Maria Ho.
