UB’S Online Poker Championship Series, which guarantees over $5 Million in tournament money and competition prizes, continued yesterday afternoon with Event #27 of the UBOC6 tournament schedule’s 29 guaranteed events.

289 Online poker players showed up for UB’s $100+9 buy-in NLH Turbo Unlimited Rebuys +2 Add ons, hosted Friend of UB’s Mark “P0KER H0” Kroon, which kicked off at 16:00 ET yesterday, offering a prize pool of $100,000.  A number of Team UB Pros turned out for the Saturday afternoon $100K GTD event, including host P0KER H0 (83rd), ERIC BALDWIN (217th) BRYAN_DEVO (148th) and BRANDONCANTU, who was the highest placed of them, finishing in 16th place to cash $850.

The Turbo format delivered one of the quickest results of the UBOC series, with the final hand coming a mere three and a quarter hours after the first cards were dealt. At around 19:15 ET, there were only two players left to battle it out for first and second places, and the remaining prize money. A deal was discussed between RALNKAHN and GOOD2FU, but they decided to play for it instead. A short time later, it wasGOOD2FU, who turned out to have the winning hand with his As-Jd. The board showed Jc-Ks-Ac on the Flop, the Js on the Turn, and the 6c on the River, giving GOOD2FU a Full House versus RALNKAHN’s Two Pair, the Kh-3h in his hand. GOOD2FU pocketed the first place prize of $26,000.
