The Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP) series returns this Sunday with €1 million guaranteed. The MPN’s biggest ever poker tournament series, with 88 events and over 360 satellites, will run from 9 to 23 September 2018. Players can enter at least 10 UCOP satellites with a buy-in of €11 or more until 23 September for a chance to win a ticket to the UCOP Main Event Freeroll.
This year’s UCOP Main Event has a fantastic €100,000 guarantee, the highest guaranteed prize pool in UCOP history.
The MPN’s most notable UCOP satellites include a €22 100-Seat Mega Feeder to the Main Event (guaranteeing €11,000 in seats) at 13:30 GMT on Sunday 23 September, and a weekly €0.11 Monster Rebuy (direct feeder) to the Main Event, which will directly register any winners into the €110 Main Event.
The winner who takes the top spot on the UCOP leader board will be crowned the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe, with the trophy to match, €3,000 in cash and two MPN Poker Tour (MPNPT) packages. Each package includes entry into the main event and one side event, as well as accommodation and travel expenses for the winner and a guest. The winner will also get the chance to experience the unique and friendly atmosphere at MPN events, including incredible player parties and luxury VIP activities hosted in some of the most beautiful cities Europe has to offer.
Alex Scott, Managing Director of Poker at Microgaming, comments: “UCOP continues to go from strength to strength, and with €1 million guaranteed we will be offering the biggest event series in the MPN’s history this September.
