Online poker tournaments are more popular than ever and this is largely due to the massive marketing campaigns that online poker operators have been pushing. The most popular names in the world of online poker tournaments include PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) and the currently-running World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) as well as Full Tilt Poker’s FTOPS.  However, avid poker players are always looking for something different to enjoy playing and fortunately, there are a ton of great options available for them. For this piece, we are focusing on the Microgaming Poker Network and its amazing Universal Championship of Poker.

This year, the Universal Championship of Poker 2019 will kick off on Sunday, September 15 and will run till September. In that period, the event will feature a whopping 94 action-packed events as well as over €1 million in guarantees. Buy-ins will start from as lows as €2.20, all the way up to €320 which means that, regardless of your bankroll, there will be something for you.

To make it even better, beginning September 1, poker players interested in the tournament series have been offered the chance to secure seats to the Universal Championship of Poker in daily satellites running on all MPN’s participating poker rooms.

“We have introduced affordable lower-stakes tournaments, with buy-ins ranging from €2.20 to €320, so that players of all levels can enjoy the series over the two-week period and have the chance to claim UCOP victory. The team is looking forward to seeing all the action unfold over the coming weeks,” Alex Scott, Managing Director of Poker at Microgaming said.

Perhaps the most highly anticipated event is the €100,000 guaranteed Main Event that will go down on September 29 but there are other amazing highlight events including the €45,000 guaranteed High Roller on September 29, and the €30,000 guaranteed 6 Max Freezeout on September 22.

The players can look forward to some amazing perks from each and every event – every winner of any of the UCOP events will be awarded a seat in the Tournament of Champions which will take place on October 6.

MPN’s Unique Leaderboard Promo

To top off all of the action-packed events in the tournament schedule, MPN has also announced that the UCOP leaderboard will also be running throughout the run of the tournament series. The player that will be leading the pack by the time the tournament ends will not only be crowned the ‘Greatest Poker Player in the Universe’ but will also take home the coveted trophy, a Player’s Choice prize, a €1,550 Online Tournament Ticket package, €1,500 MPN Poker Tour (MPNPT) package, and €1,000 in cash. Does it get any better than that?
