JBLAZE20 wins UBOC Event #13 for $36,990 and 1GOLEAFSGOEH1  excelled  in the Turbo Triple Chance Short Stack Tournament.

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA (Sunday, January 23rd, 2011) – UB’S Online Poker Championship Series, which guarantees over $5 Million in tournament money and competition prizes, continued on Saturday, January 22nd. The action kicked off at 15:00 ET with the $128K GTD NLH Heads Up event, and Prahlad Freidman performing hosting duties for the first time since joining Team UB. An hour later at 16:00 ET, several members of Team UB headed the $100K GTD Triple Chance Short Stack Rebuy tourney, Event #14 of the UBOC6tournament schedule.

Team UB’s PRAHLAD (36th)hosted yesterday’s $1000+50 buy-in NLH Heads Up tourney. 137 online pokerplayers competed for a share of the eventual $137,000 prize pool.  A number of Team UBPros turned out for the $128K GTD event, including BRANDONCANTU (73rd)), and DEBO34 who finished up in 19th place to cash $1,370.00.

Unfortunately for tournament host PRAHLAD, his run was brought to a premature end in round two by Friend of UB, Mark “ULTIMATEMARC” Gork, UB Ambassador for Germany since July 2010. ULTIMATEMARC continued long enough to make it into the money, finishing up in 28th place to cash $1,370.

"The heads up championships was a great event that I truly enjoyed. My goal of winning it was cut short, but I'm looking forward to making another run next year,” said Friedman.

Heads Up poker requires a steely self-confidence and a special set of skills. It’s one-on-one, and there’s no room for errors or second-guesses. In the end, it was JBLAZE20 with a Full House, twos full of eights who took down WAMMERMOUTH, whose Three of a kind, just couldn’t hold up in the final hand of the match-up.
