Sky Poker Unveil Their Christmas UK Online Poker Series!

Following on from the Success of the Inaugural Online Poker Series This Autumn, Sky Poker Are Delighted to Announce a Second Edition of the Game: the Xmas UK Online Poker Series

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - As part of their series of promotions leading up to the Christmas holidays, online poker group, Sky Poker, are delighted to unveil a special Christmas edition of their popular Online Poker Series game, giving players an even greater chance of winning fantastic cash prizes.

The 'Xmas UK Online Poker Series' will see four separate events, totalling £100,000 in guarantees, run between the 27th and 30th December 2011. Each event, starting at 8pm, offers players a fantastic cash prize (see schedule below). There's also an additional £72,000 up for grabs in Sky Poker's popular side events, which run alongside the main series tournaments. In total, Sky Poker is giving away a whopping £172,000 over four days - now that's a nice Christmas cracker!

The Xmas UK Online Poker Series event schedule:

27th December: £15,000 No Limit Hold'em
£110 buy-in (4000 chips and 12 minute blinds)
28th December: £10,000 Double Stack
£110 buy-in (8000 chips and 12 minute blinds)
29th December: £25,000 Bounty Hunter
£110 buy-in (4000 chips and 12 minute blinds)
30th December: £50,000 Main Event
£110 buy-in (10000 chips and 15 minute blinds)

As with the original Online Poker Series, there will be satellites into each of the main events, allowing players of even the smallest bankroll to take their shot at winning the big cash prizes on offer. The UK Online Poker Series 'semis' as they're called will run every night at 9pm, costing players £24 to buy-in and play. However, even if that's still a little too highly priced, Sky Poker is running satellites into the semi tournaments as well, which means players could feasibly enter the 9pm tourneys for as little as £2.70!
