MPN brings back Universal Championship Of Poker.

By RP, January 13, 2019

The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) has brought back the Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP) Passport and Mini from January 13 to February 10, 2019.

UCOP offers two series comprising 112 events and over Euro 500,000 guaranteed.

The UCOP Passport leaderboard will award  Euro 10,000 worth of prizes across all UCOP Passport events from 27 January to 10 February 2019 in which the top player will take home three MPN Poker Tour packages worth Euro 4,500 plus a Euro 550 Online Tournament tickets package.

Players will have the opportunity to travel to any of the remaining MPNPT live poker events in 2019, taking place in European cities. The winner will receive entry into the main event and one side event, accommodation for themselves and a guest, plus cash towards travel expenses.

Winners of any UCOP Passport event will also qualify for the Tournament of Champions on 17 February 2019, with a reward of one MPN Poker Tour package worth Euro 1,500. Additionally, the MPN has scheduled twelve 50 percent Super Bounty Events awarding over Euro 40,000 in prizes.

The popular UCOP Mini series also makes a return from 13-27 January, offering the same format as UCOP Passport but with buy-ins and guarantees at one tenth the size.

With a range of buy-ins from Euro 0.55 to Euro 320 across both series, players can experience the action, whatever their level.

Qualification for both the UCOP Passport and UCOP Mini series is available at a fraction of the cost with satellites currently running 24 hours a day on all participating MPN poker rooms.

The packed satellite schedule includes a 50 Seat Mega Feeder to the UCOP Passport Main Event (Euro 22 entry freeze out guaranteeing Euro 5,500 in seats) at 14:30 GMT on 10 February, a weekly Euro 0.11 satellite into the Euro 50,000 UCOP Passport Main Event every Sunday at 15:45 GMT, and many more.
