MPN to crown Greatest Poker Player in the Universe
7 Sep 2017
A €10,000 leader board will track player progress throughout the Universal Championship of Poker series. The winning player will take home €5,000 in cash and the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe trophy.
In addition to the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe leaderboard, UCOP III will see the addition of a €5,000 Great Players Leaderboard. This leaderboard rewards players who live and breathe poker, contribute to the game and grow it for others. Points are awarded to players who stream their play during the series on Twitch, YouTube or Facebook Live, with additional points going to those players who have the most interesting stream each day.
"The Universal Championship of Poker is back bigger and better again this year. We've grown the guarantees from €250,000 in 2015, to €500,000 last year and now €750,000 for the 2017 installment! We're also thrilled to welcome Adjarabet players to the UCOP for the first time and excited to see how this influences both the live streams, and of course the prize pools," said Alex Scott, Head of Product (Network Games) at Microgaming.
Satellites are already running from as little as €0.11.
