‘Smaller buy-ins, Bigger prizes’ – that’s music to the ears of any poker fan, and we’re rolling out the whole orchestra at 32Red this month because there’ll be more reduced buy-ins and increased prize pools than you can shake a virtual stick at.
In fact, every day between March 20th and March 26th you’ll be able to take advantage of these player-friendly tweaks in five multi-table tournaments. Who cares what the nutritionists say? At 32Red you’ll be guaranteed a week’s worth of your ‘5 a day’ essentials…
Of course, in this case, instead of having to nibble on an apple and trying to do something interesting with a turnip, your 5-a-day is made up of fun-filled tournaments. And eating fruit and vegetables doesn’t come with a chance of winning money. Numbers-wise, we’re talking slashing buy-ins by over 40% and bumping the prize pools up by more than €20,000 during the course of the promotional period!
Finally, to top the week off, March 26th will see a special edition of the Sunday Showdown, with the buy-in lowered to €135 (from €215) and the prize fund increased from €25,000 to €32,000!
We all know people who claim to be the best at something – the lowest golf handicap at work, the best tennis player, the fastest, fittest, the would-be ‘Boss’ of the regular home poker game… Now you have the chance to beat them all because at 32Red Poker we’re hosting the 2nd Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP II), 4-11 September 2016. Yes, that’s right – not the world, the universe.
And the winner will earn the title of being The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe which, we think you’ll agree, is a pretty decent claim to fame. The eventual UCOP II champion will also get a trophy to place proudly on the mantelpiece or the office desk, and then there’s the €10,000 1st prize!
You’ll be able to keep up to date with your progress in the quest to rule the (poker) universe via our special Leaderboard. But UCOP II isn’t just a test of your poker ability, although with €500,000 in guaranteed prizes on offer in the series of events – which will feature various formats and tournament types to suit all tastes – it’s well worth getting involved in the cut and thrust of the competitive aspect. Points toward the leaderboard will be awarded for a range of other, very important factors that should be taken into account when bestowing on someone the title of the Greatest.
Of course cashing in tournaments is important, as is consistency and all-round flexibility in terms of being able to play more than just one variant, but other qualities will be rewarded, such as streaming the game online using Twitch, sharing your UCOP II experience with your Twitter followers, and so on. Simply tweeting a screenshot of yourself playing UCOP II using the hashtag #UCOP will move you up the Leaderboard, for example! Success in competition is one thing, but The Greatest should also promote this fantastic game whenever possible.
It’s going to be a fascinating week or so during UCOP II as all kinds of poker fans battle it out to earn the coveted title and a cool €10K – if you’ve yet to embrace Twitch or you’ve not got around to sharing the fun roller-coaster experience that is online poker via social media, then now is the time to spread your wings and get involved. It may well lead you to the enviable accolade of The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe and a juicy boost to your bankroll.
To win your way into the numerous events via our bankroll-friendly satellite structure simply go to Tournaments > Special in the Poker Lobby. Good luck, have fun, and may the poker force be with you!
