Leading online poker room UB.com is set to run a series of real-money satellites offering over 20 seats into next month’s special $1,650 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament from Montreal’s Four Aces Poker Club.
The Kahnawake-licensed domain stated that its latest promotion is being run in partnership with Poker Pro Canada Classic and will begin on January 2 at 4.05pm New York time with a $215 buy-in satellite offering three guaranteed seats into Montreal’s biggest poker event, which will take place from January 27 to 30.
UB.com revealed it will also hold satellites on January 5, 9, 12, 13 and 16 awarding prize packages worth $2,500, which include $850 for travel expenses to Quebec.
“Qualify for any of these super satellites on the day for as little as eleven dollars and keep an eye out for more daily satellites added to the line-up the closer the Montreal live event draws near,” read a statement from UB.com.
