UB.net's New Freeroll Series Has a World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Package Valued at $12,000 to Be Won

From October 11th, the Leading Online Poker Site's Daily Freerolls Will Send One Lucky Online Poker Player to the WPT's Annual Five Diamond World Poker Classic to Compete for a Share of the Multi-Million-Dollar Main Event Prize Pool

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) - UB.net is gearing up to send one lucky online poker player to Vegas to be part of the prestigious WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, scheduled to play out at the Bellagio from December 3rd through 8th, 2010. The leading free play online poker site is hosting a series of daily freerolls from October 11th through November 28th, including the Main Event freeroll that will award the winner with a $12,000 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic prize package.

UB.net players now have a chance to become the next Five Diamond World Poker Champion, while competing in the upcoming WPT event in Las Vegas. The annual six-day $10,000+300 buy-in tournament will award the winner with hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money, along with a $25,000+500 buy-in for the 2011 WPT Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

To get there for free, UB.net players just need to outshine their competitors at the tables in three easy rounds of online poker. From October 11th through November 27th, UB's Round 1 freerolls run six times per day Monday to Saturday at 00:30, 04:30, 08:30, 12:30, 16:30, 20:30 ET, with the top 100 players in each qualifying for the Round 2 Weekly Freerolls on each Sunday between October 11th and November 28th at 14:00 ET.

Go on to finish in the top 100 in any of the Weekly Round 2 events to earn automatic entry to the Round 3 Main Event, scheduled for Sunday November 28th at 20:00 ET. The winner of Round 3 walks away with the $12,000 Five Diamond World Poker Classic prize package that includes the WPT tournament buy-in, plus $1,700 for travel and accommodation.

As an added bonus, players can also win a Wireless Poker Controller by playing in any of the six Sunday Freerolls from October 17th through November 21st. The top 75 finishers in each of these freerolls will advance to compete in one of two 'Side Events,' scheduled for October 31st and November 21st at 20:30 ET. The winner of each 'Side Event' will walk away as the proud owner of a new Wireless Poker Controller, and the technology to control their favorite online poker game with more accuracy, speed and comfort.

While the new UB.net freerolls are now focused on the Bellagio event in December, one UB.net player has just booked himself a seat at the WPT Festa Al Lago event, taking place at the same five star venue, from October 15th through 20th. ROBODOT walked away with first prize in yesterday's Main Event freeroll at UB.net after besting a field of 695 players. He will enjoy a $12K prize package for the Festa Al Lago, while also taking his shot at a share of the lucrative prize pool up for grabs.

"I love the site and the service, and I've had an excellent experience playing on UB. I plan on playing even more tourneys now with the money I won. I followed my plan and it paid off. Thank you very much to UB," said ROBODOT.

Log onto UB.net and play for the Five Diamond World Poker Classic WPT package, without even spending a cent.
