Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

To help reach and hopefully surpass the €1,000,000 guarantee, we will be offering over 360 satellites each day (both for UCOP tickets and direct feeders to certain events). These will be seen in the lobby in mid-August and begin on the 19th August

Some of the featured sattys:

100 Seat Mega Feeder to the Main Event - €22 FO, so 1/5.5 players will be directly fed into the Main Event. Date of this is TBC, but will most likely be on the day of the Main Event
A Daily 11c (€0.11) Monster Rebuy Feeder to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder mentioned above. 1 Seat Guaranteed
A Weekly (Sunday) 11c (€0.11) Monster Rebuy Feeder to the €100K Main Event. 1 Seat Guaranteed
15 Direct Seats to the Main Event guaranteed each day across a range of different formats and buy-ins. This number will be upped considerably on Sundays
34 Direct Seats to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder guaranteed each day, again across different formats and buy-ins, and will be upped on Sundays
2 Direct Seats to the €40K High Roller guaranteed each day
There will also be a Freeroll Feeder to the Main Event for any players that play at least 10 €11+ UCOP Satellites. 3 Seats to the Main Event are guaranteed in this. It will be held a few hours before the Main Event itself

In total, there will be over €16,000 guaranteed each day in sattys!

0 PLO8 events

Maybe could transfer some texas monster rebuy event to PLO8 Monster Rebuy event. I think that would be far more fun action format for shortstack play.

Hi, as previously mentioned PLO8 isnt available in the new Prima client so we decided to leave it off the schedule for UCOP.

Hello you guys should make the Initial Stack 10k, and the higher buy in 20K, like ipoker/acr/partypoker/pokerstars fr everyone is doing big stacks, and add reentries, and start in 25/50 5 antes, playing 10/20 15/30 without antes is 2010 no other poker site have it.
and for the normal schedule you guys should put the last 11r 500 lucky firecracker as a 5 rebuy

I would like that as well and love that it is like this on Party. Plus it might be enticing to recreationals as they would get to play with a big stack just like we see on TV when the world series is on

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Bounty rebuy seems a strange idea, i guess it encourages looser play pre add on but after the add on whats the point in a 2 euro bouty for people who will be in the game for like 30 euro on average i guess and some for far more and then will be especially worthless once in the money.

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Bumping thread.

All UCOP Events, apart from the Bounty Tournaments, are live and available to join
All satellites are now in the system and are available to join
--

I have just finished entering over 360 daily UCOP satellites into the system, which is a lengthy task. All the satellites are now live in the lobby, and you can register for them all. They kick off at 00:01 GMT this Sunday (19th August). There are both direct feeders and ticket satellites.

Direct feeders are clearly marked, and if you win one of these, you will be automatically registered for the target event, which you will be unable to unregister from, standard stuff.

Ticket satellites will give a generic ticket to whoever win these satellites. They can be used for ANY tournament with the same buy-in until UCOP ends (ie they can be used for the regular daily tournaments also, and of course can be used in other satellites). The satellite tickets will last until at least the end of UCOP, and you can check the expiry of the ticket in your account. And again, you can still use these tickets after UCOP ends (just make sure to use them before they expire!).

Starting this Sunday, is qualifying for the Main Event Freeroll. Play in at least 10 €11+ (Buy-In of €11.00 or higher) UCOP satellites from 00:01 GMT Sunday 19th August – 14:00 GMT Sunday 23rd September to earn your ticket. The freeroll starts at 14:00 GMT on Sunday 23rd September and it awards 3 seats (direct feeder) to the Main Event! It will be set up as an achievement, and once you earn your ticket you will need to register for the tournament yourself. Note that the €11+ satellites must have “UCOP” in their name!

Some UCOP satellite daily highlights:

Over 360 with buy-ins from €0.11 - €110
15 seats to the Main Event
35 seats to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder
2 seats to the €320 High Roller (€40K)
An 11c Monster Rebuy (direct feeder) to the 100 Seat Mega Feeder at 17:41 GMT

Along with the above, we also have:

A €22 100 Seat Mega Feeder to the Main Event (guaranteeing €11,000 in seats), at 13:30 GMT on Sunday 23rd September. 1 in 5.5 entries will win!
A weekly 11c Monster Rebuy (direct feeder) to the Main Event – each Sunday at 19:33 GMT

All satellites guarantee at least 1 ticket/seat! I would expect that the prime time satellites will begin to have higher amount of tickets/seats guaranteed as these start to take off.

A full schedule can be found here: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...23&postcount=3

If you note any issues in any of the satellites, please PM me or post here!

Sure it might be a bit different, and if it doesn't work, we don't have to run it again

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Leaderboard prizes seem better than last time (did skip whole series as they really were not worth playing), but timing of this series is too bad for me. Probably playing bit of rebuys alongside my regular play, but that's it. Booster / freezeout (especially deepstacks) / current monster rebuy tournaments have about 0 appeal for me.

Personally I think that Sunday program is a bit too heavy. I am somewhat professional player, and 6 tables really is max for me and I would guess most recs too. Removing one tournament which lasts long would make great deal to fix it (for next series), probably 100+10€.

For me personally satellites seems too expensive considering their worth. I would never like to spend more than 15% of target tournament buy-in for a satellite. So 22r -> 215 and 22 -> 109 are certainly not for me. 11r -> 215 would be much more tempting.

Hoping for the best for series and I really you'll catch some players to play your regular tournaments. Gonna continue play those every night I play, albeit less often than now as I will concentrate on my studies.

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Pity all five of the €5.50's are re-buys (could've thrown at least 1 F/O in there) and the only bounty MTT at €11 is a weird bounty/re-buy combo. Would've jumped in it if it was a straight bounty F/O like your offering at the higher stakes (which are beyond my current BR) but, not keen on this current weird version unfortunately...

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Our €1,000,000 guaranteed UCOP starts on Sunday (9th September). We are guaranteeing over €100,000 for this Sunday, across 7 events.

To help the numbers we are running the following direct feeders on Sunday:

€22 15 Seat Mega Feeder to UCOP Event #4 (€30,000 GTD - €110) @15:40 UK Time
€55 10 Seat Mega Feeder to UCOP Event #6 (€20,000 GTD - €215) @17:35 UK time

Each day, there will be smaller satellites to get into the above

UCOP Event #4:

€2.20 Turbo Rebuy @ 17:10 UK Time
€2.20 Turbo Rebuy @ 19:10 UK Time
€5.50 Turbo Freezeout @ 20:30 UK Time

UCOP Event #6:

€5.50 Turbo Rebuy @ 18:20 UK Time
€11 Turbo Freezeout @ 19:35 UK Time
€5.50 Turbo Rebuy @ 21:10 UK Time

All of these smaller sattys run Mon-Sat, have 1 seat guaranteed and will start with just 2 entrants!

Looking for all these to run, so that the main satellites on Sunday will have their minimum numbers far exceeded before they start!

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Question about UCOP leaderboard:

- Tweet while playing in the UCOP on Twitter “Currently playing in a #UCOP event as (insert alias). #ThrillOfPoker”
-> Maximum 20 bonus points/day (updates every day from 10 until 24 September)

Is this like I have to tweet 20 times each day or one tweet will suffice per day? And it is okay to add twitch link to the tweet?

Might be playing after all (problems with University). At least first few days and see how it will go there. Too bad streaming in twitch does not award extra points any more.

You can tweet as many times per day as you want! You will only get the 20 points for the first time though. To get the maximum points (300) you need to tweet at least once each day for the 15 days of UCOP.

Ill get back to you regarding if you can add in other information or not

Regarding streaming, if there is a lot of interest in such a bonus, it might be brought back at another series. It will not affect this series at all though

--

Yes, you can tweet the streaming link, or other information, so long as the that required message is there in full (and unbroken)

Any ticket (seat) won to a specific UCOP event will automatically register you for that event. Should you win multiple seats to the same event, then please contact your Operator should you have an issue. They will will convert anything additional into generic tickets, which you can use for the series or after (check expiry date on these once they are in your account).

Any UCOP tickets won since the 19th August, until the 23rd September, can be use for ANY tournament with the same buy-in during UCOP (this would include UCOP events, UCOP satellites, and our regularly scheduled tournaments too). While we would of course prefer that they are used during UCOP, they do not expire at 23:59 on the 23rd September. Please check the actual tickets when you win them for their specific expiry date.

Player which regularly tweets about Microgaming poker series will get as many points as a player who wins 2 events of 100eur with 100 entrants each.

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

The first UCOP Event (€5.50 NLHE Turbo Monster Rebuy with a €5,000 guarantee) has just kicked off

7 Events today, including a €110 €30K and a €215 €20K. Our main rebuy is a €22 with €20K guaranteed.

There are a bunch of direct feeding satellites for the next few hours. And you can flip your way into both the €110 and the €215 for €1 each!

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

Day 4 of the UCOP kicks off today at 16:00 GMT (17:00 UK time):

UCOP Event 18 - €10,000 (Booster) - €55 @16:00 GMT
UCOP Event 19 - €7,500 (Deepstack) - €33 @16:30 GMT
UCOP Event 20 - €10,000 (Rebuy) - €22 @17:00 GMT
UCOP Event 21 - €2,000 (Freezeout) - €11 - PLO @17:30 GMT
UCOP Event 22 - €10,000 (Freezeout) - €110 @18:00 GMT
UCOP Event 23 - €7,500 (Bounty Freezeout) - €33 @19:00 GMT


For the last 3 days, we have been running €1 flips to each event, including the €215s - these start ~5 minutes before each event.

We have also been running 3 seat flips ~10 minutes before each event starts. These are for ~1/11th of the buy-in of the event, eg the €110 events have a €10 flip.

For the €55s, €110s and €215s we have also been doing a €1 or €2 flip into the main flip for the event. €1 (flip) -> €10 (flip) -> €110 event for example. These start 5-10 minutes before the main flip

All these UCOP flips have €0 in rake and there is no late reg. They are overlaying currently, so are great value

Also each day we are doing 5 seat guaranteed direct feeders to the €33s, €55s, €110s, €215s. These are proving to be very a popular way to get into the events for a lot less. We also have some really small flips to some of these feeders before the feeder starts.

The next €215 is on Friday and there is a €55 5 seat mega feeder into this too. You can qualify for it each day in the €5.50Rs and €11 FO direct turbo feeders. The event is #32 and has €15K guaranteed.

We have a €320 on Sunday with a €30K guarantee. This has a €55 10 seat mega feeder to it starting a couple of hours before the event itself. You can buy-in direct to this feeder, or satellite into it each day in the €5.50R and the €5.50 2R1A (€3.30 rebuys and addon) turbos.

You can check the updated UCOP leaderboard here:

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

We had an issue last night with Event 23 - the €33 Bounty. Unfortunately the bounties did not work and so it ended up playing like a normal freezeout.

This situation was fixed a few minutes ago, and the bounty amounts were paid out to players. The bounty amounts were from our pocket.

The 4 remaining bounty tournaments should not have this issue

Re: UCOP IV - €1,000,000 Guaranteed Series - 9th to 23rd September 2018

UCOP still has over €450,000 up for grabs, with the following major tournaments still to come:

UCOP Main Event - €100,000 (Freezeout) - €110 - 23rd September
UCOP High Roller - €40,000 (Freezeout) - €320 - 23rd September
UCOP Event 83 - €25,000 (Rebuy) - €22 - 23rd September
UCOP Event 68 - €20,000 (Booster) - €215 - 20th September


We have direct feeding multi seat satellites into the larger buy-ins:

100 Seat Mega Feeder to the €100K Main Event - €22 entry
20 Seat Mega Feeder to the €40K High Roller - €55 entry
10 Seat Turbo Feeder to the €20K Booster - €55 entry

Numerous satellites are available for these throughout the day, all guaranteeing at least 1 seat and some will start with just 2 runners!

Our leaderboard is giving away €15,000 in prizes and can be found here:

https://mpn.poker/promotions/univers...ship-of-poker/

If you enter at least 10 €11+ UCOP Satellites then you will get a ticket for the Main Event Freeroll, which will award 3x €110 Main Event seats! Full details can be found on the above link.
