The CEREUS Poker Network, home to UB and Absolute Poker, has upgraded its leaderboard, which now offers $1 million in prizes.

The new system will reward players with bankrolls of all sizes and the overall multi-table tournament leaderboard will award more Aruba Poker Classic and World  Series of Poker seats than ever before.

“We’ve revamped our leaderboard system to make it more accessible for all players, so that everyone has a fairer chance to win in a big way,” explained Annie Duke, UB.com’s cardroom consultant.

“UB and Absolute Poker continue to be a top choice for the world’s best poker players and a magnet for a growing number of young, emerging poker guns.”

The 2010 overall tournament leaderboard winner will receive a prize package that includes a $10,000 WSOP seat, a $5,500 entry into the Aruba Poker Classic plus $4,500 in tournament dollars.

The top 50 players on the MTT leaderboard will be invited to participate in an exclusive tournament giving first through third place a full $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic package and fourth and fifth place a $5,500 main event entry.

CEREUS also took the time to announce that online player PISCATO77 had secured the 2009 title after 12 months of hard work.

The 51-year-old Wyoming resident received $10,000 for his efforts.

“I have cashed at a few live tourneys including the WSOP and WPT, but my proudest accomplishment to date is the 2009 UB yearly leaderboard,” he said.

“I love the camaraderie amongst the UB players, their tournament structure is the best on the web, and I’ll be back at the UB tables trying for back-to-back tournament leaderboard wins in 2010.”
