Sky Poker Prepares for the £350,000 UKOPS VXII

Sky Poker UKOPS XVII
Sharelines
  • Sky Poker gears up for the £350,000 guaranteed UKOPS XVII, a 43-event festival from October 28.

Sky Poker’s popular online festival, the UK Online Poker Series, returns from Friday 28 October for a 43 event spectacular where more than £350,000 is guaranteed to be won over the course of 10 days.

Now in its 17th edition, the Sky Poker UKOPS promises players a variety of tournament formats including freezeouts, rebuys, deepstacks, and bounty hunters. Buy-ins start at only £22 and increase up to £530, that princely sum being reserved for the £30,000 guaranteed High Roller at 7:30 p.m. UK time on Sunday 30 October.

There are at least four UKOPS events taking place every day from Friday 28 October through to Sunday 6 November, 2016, with one of those daily tournaments being a £110 buy-in Main Event in line of that day’s other tournaments.

Winners of each UKOPS event not only win the cash prize assigned to first place, but they also receive a special commemorative UKOPS bracelet.
