MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 21, 2011) - At Sunday has always been about the big guarantees, and this weekend, the money on the line is even sweeter. The leading online poker site is revving up the action with their first ever High Roller No Limit Hold 'em Deep Stack $750,000 Guaranteed tournament, hosted by Team UB's Prahlad Friedman.

UBOC6 Event #16 is a high stakes tournament scheduled for Sunday, January 23rd at 17:00 ET with a $2000+100 buy-in that's slated to attract some of the best online poker players in the business to the UB tables. We've all marveled at the many tales of high stakes poker heroics and monster pots, but this High Roller event will shine the light on poker fans who want to take a shot at the big time without having to put the house on the line.

"I'm looking forward to hosting the biggest buy-in event at UB. It's the deep stack $750K guaranteed and the best of the best will challenge each other. This is the tourney that everyone wants to win," stated Team UB Pro Prahlad Friedman.

When the cards hit the virtual felt on Sunday early evening, players will be looking to bank the lion's share of the $750K GTD prize pool. It's going to take skill and determination to rise to the top of the pack in this one -- but for those that are up for the challenge and have a couple of spare grand in their kit, the rewards are there for the taking.
