Are You the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe?


If you've got the time and the bankroll, September is the season for proving your mettle in online poker tournaments.

You can vie for a WCOOP (or mini-WCOOP) bracelet. Battle for the big money in the 888poker Super XL Series. Or punch it out in partypoker's Powerfest.

You can also, if you choose, put your hat in the ring for the title of the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe.

1 Week, 24 Events, €500k GTD

The Universal Championship of Poker is already underway on the Microgaming Network, which includes famed 3D poker site PKR.


Offering up 24 events with buy-ins from €5.50 to €320 (most under €15), the series runs from Sept. 4-11 and is aimed directly at the recreational player.

Multiple events run daily all week leading to the €320 main event finale on the 11th with €75k guaranteed.

Win the main event and you'll take home the biggest cut of the biggest prize pool, of course. But you'll have to do a little more to claim the title of "Greatest Poker Player in the Universe."

The UCOP leaderboard will keep track of all your results over UCOP and if you come out on top you’ll pocket €10k in cash and the GPPitU Trophy.

Every €1 won in UCOP = 1 point. Cash in 2 or more events and you'll get a bonus 500 points. 

You'll also be rewarded for playing more than one variant. If you Play Event #5, Event #7 and any rebuy event you'll get 1,000 points.

Play all events in the series (only one day 1 from Event #5 is required) and you'll get the maximum 2,000 point bonus
