UCOP Leaderboard: Be the Greatest
As well as the enviable title of ‘Greatest Poker Player in the Universe’ and the accompanying trophy, the eventual UCOP Leaderboard winner will get to choose from a fantastic selection of prizes that make up the €20K being awarded, with the top 20 earning a tasty bonus.
How it Works
It couldn’t be simpler – achieve good tournament performances to progress up the Leaderboard, with 1 point for winning a tournament, 2 for finishing second, 3 for third and so on. The fewer points you collect during the series, the higher your position on the Leaderboard.
Meanwhile, your points for tournaments in which you do not take part will be the number of players in that event plus 1, so missing a 100-player tournament means 101 points added to your tally. Players’ worst (highest) 15-point scores will be discarded when determining overall scores.
Player’s Choice Prize
The prizes on the UCOP Leaderboard offer something for everyone, and the top eight will be able to choose their prize! For example, 1st is a choice between:
- €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package or
- €1,500 MPNPT Package or
- €1,000 Cash
€100,000 UCOP Main Event
The Main Event (17:00 BST, 29th September) is too good to miss, so we’ve made it possible to win a €110 ticket to play by completing any of the following achievements from 1st-29th September:
- Play 1,000 Fish Party games, minimum €10 buy-in
- Play 1,000 SNGs, minimum €20 buy-in (Fish Party is not included)
- Play 25,000 NLHE hands at €0.25/€0.50 or above OR
- Play 25,000 PLO hands at €0.25/€0.50 or above
Tournament of Champions
Qualify for this ultimate Tournament of Champions (19:00 BST, 6th October) by winning any UCOP event! There are eight prizes, with the winner choosing a Player’s Choice prize.
