MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 17, 2010) -  The good times continue to roll with UBOC5,'s Championship tournament series, set to kick off this Wednesday, August 18th at 20:05 ET. Along with 20 guaranteed tournaments and an overall prize pool in excess of $4 Million in cash and prizes, UBOC5 ushers in the return of the Bubble Buster promotion where staying in the game after the Bubble bursts is worth up to $1 Million.

The UBOC5 tournament line-up debuts tomorrow night at 20:05 ET with Event # 1, a $200,000 GTD No Limit Hold 'em Sniper event, with a $300+20 buy-in, and a $30 bounty on all players' heads. Knock out tournament host Joe Sebok (or any Team UB Pro playing in any UBOC event) to receive a $200 bounty reward in tournament dollars and an official UBOC Sniper T-shirt.

Event # 2 will also run on August 18th at 20:05 ET, and players for whom mixed games are their bag, they should pull up a seat at the $250+17 buy-in Pot Limit Hold 'em/Pot Limit Omaha $100K GTD, hosted by Team UB's Bryan Devonshire.

Getting a head start in the UBOC action should be part of the plan for all UBOC5 participants, because cashing in more than 2 UBOC events will be their ticket to more rewards in the form of freeroll entries, tournament seats, and cash prizes up to a staggering $1 Million.
