€500,000 Gtd UCOP Vegas Online Series Features a €20,000 Leaderboard
The 2019 Universal Championship of Online Poker (UCOP) heads to Microgaming (MPN) sites from Apr. 14-28 bringing with it 61-events with combined guarantees of €500,000 plus a €20,000 leaderboard where the winner secures €2,500 worth of tournament tickets and a Las Vegas trip for two worth €7,500.
UCOP events start with buy-ins as low as €5.50 and increase to the €320. A number of different formats are available, including freezeouts, bounty hunters, deepstacks, 1R1A, rebuys and super bounty rebuys. All 61-events look fantastic value, but it is the €110 buy-in UCOP Vegas Main Event - €50,000 Freezeout that every MPN poker player will have their eye on.
MPN has created a €20,000 UCOP Vegas Leaderboard that pays out the top 50 points earners during the 61-event series. Points are earned simply by playing in UCOP Vegas events, but you receive bonus points for finishing in the top six places. The final table bonuses are:
- 1st place – 1.5
- 2nd place – 1.45
- 3rd place – 1.4
- 4th place – 1.35
- 5th place – 1.3
- 6th place – 1.25
The formula used to calculate points is: √ (buy-inx entrants/position) X Final Table Bonus
The buy-in for rebuy and add-on events is the total prize pool divided by the number of entrants
Finishing in first place of the UCOP Vegas Leaderboard awards a trip to Las Vegas for two valued at €7,500. The Vegas package includes premium economy flights, limo transfer from the airport to the hotel, accommodation and a choice of experiences to enjoy in Sin City.
The UCOP Vegas leaderboard winner also secures an online tournament ticket package valued at €2,500. This is made up of 1x €320, 1x €215, 8x €110, 8x €55, 10x €33, 10x €22 and 10x €11 tickets.
