It’s around about this time of year that the online poker rooms start announcing what sort of WSOP satellites they’ll be offering to their players.
Party Poker announced their qualifiers a few days ago and now it’s the turn of UB.com who it seems will be putting players first in their bid to find a Main Event Champion.
If you manage to win your WSOP seat through the UB.com qualifiers, you’ll be be awarded a package worth $12,000 which includes a seat in the Main Event and money for travelling expenses/accommodation.
You’d expect something similar from most online satellites. However, UB.com are going a stage further by giving all of their qualifiers extra cash just for wearing a load of UB.com gear while they’re playing.
This additional prize money will break down as follows.
So far, that all sounds pretty good to us … especially as this money will be on top of any winnings you make in Vegas. But let’s go one stage further. Let’s see what happens if you make it to the November Nine as a UB.com qualifier.
In short, UB.com looks like they’re going to be one of the best value poker rooms out there for 2011 WSOP qualifiers. Not only will they give you a free seat in Vegas, but they’ll actually pay you just for turning up to play.
This looks even better value when you consider that buy-ins for satellites cost as little as $0.10 meaning that everyone can take their shot at winning it big. On top of that, there are super satellites costing $530 which will run on a weekly basis and satellites into them for just $11.
However you decide to get to Vegas though, make sure you make a note of the of the following dates. Two 25 Seat Guarantees will run on Sunday June 12th and Sunday June 26th (both at 16.00 ET) and anyone serious about attending this year’s WSOP will want to make sure that they’re there.
To register for the qualifiers, head on over to ub.com. If you don’t currently have an account there, you’ll be able to take advantage of a 111% welcome bonus worth up to $1,100 when you make your first deposit. That’s one of the most generous poker bonuses out there.
