This Sunday's Donkament Tournament Rewards UBOC 2010 Entries

UB's Popular Online Championship Features Two $1 Million Guaranteed Tournaments, and This Weekend UB Is Giving Players a Shot at Earning UBOC Entries for UltimatePoints

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 9, 2010) - On January 10th, The Donkament online tournament at UB.com will award UBOC seats to winners instead of cash, and that means more chances for players to write themselves into the UBOC history books without dipping their hands into their pockets.

The Donkament is a monthly, points-only online poker tournament with a very attractive $50,000 prize pool on the table. To celebrate the upcoming UBOC 4 launch on January 20th, UB has replaced the usual Donkament prize money with $50,000 worth of much sought after UBOC tournament entries, including seats at the two $1 million Guaranteed UBOC events on January 24th and 31st, and entries to the UBOC Championship 100-seat Guarantee on January 31st.

This month's Donkament takes place on Sunday, January 10 at 14:30ET, with numerous satellites running throughout the day. All it takes to play in The Donkament is a bunch of UltimatePoints. Players can buy in directly for 10,000 of them or choose to secure a spot through an UltimatePoints qualifier for as little as 100 UltimatePoints.

January's Donkament winners who finish in 1st through 9th place win a UBOC 8 tournament Entry valued at $2500+100; it's the Deepstack No Limit Hold 'em 6 Max event hosted by Annie Duke on January 24th at 16:00 ET, and with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, that's a whole lot of reasons to get in on the Donkament action this weekend.

10th through 27th place finishers earn a UBOC Championship Entry that also offers a spectacular $1 million guarantee. Hosted by legend of the game Phil Hellmuth, this tournament has a buy-in of $1000+50, and will be run and won on January 31st, with cards in the air at 16:00 ET.

Players who end the Donkament in the 28th through 100th spots won't walk away empty handed, as they will receive automatic entry to the UBOC Championship 100-seat Guarantee on January 31st, valued at $100+9, that's set to award at least 100 seats into the $1 million UBOC Championship event.

So, Donkament players get to keep their money in the bank, because they can't buy into this event with cash. That means that the tournament will attract players of all skill levels and the outcome will be all the more unpredictable, and sure to deliver some exciting results.

To earn UltimatePoints, all players need to do is play real-money poker at UB. It's easy to start racking up UltimatePoints. Remember, with RAI$E, UB's industry-leading loyalty program, you'll earn more UltimatePoints as you climb up the RAI$E ladder, thanks to a clever UltimatePoints multiplier that increases based on where a player ranks. Not only will players gain access to Donkaments, they'll also earn some amazing rewards through RAI$E.
