Can You Become One Of The Next Big Winners At Sky Poker’s UKOPS XIX Tournament?

April 11, 2017

As you know, I post my No Deposit Poker article each Thursday and have done for some time, but this week I’ve posted things a little earlier than usual and for good reason. That’s because today (Tuesday) sees the start of one of the biggest and best Online Poker Series of tournaments in the UK today. Sky Poker’s United Kingdom Online Poker Series (UKOPS).

This current series of tournaments is the 19th to have been organised by Sky Poker and over the years it has proven to be a big success. There are a great mix of tournaments to play in every night, ranging from events with affordable buy ins for all, right through to the high roller events that have much larger buy ins.

Starting on Tuesday 11th April at 7pm and going through until the final tournament starts at 10pm on Monday 17th April, there are a total of 44 scheduled tournaments, plus one exciting satellite into the Main Event, that form part of the UKOPS series. Prize money is a not inconsiderable sum of more than £250,000 and the best part of it is, you can participate in this event direct from home on your desktop, smartphone or tablet.

In addition to the 44 tournaments taking place, on Saturday night there is one final chance to earn a place in the fantastic £30,000 Main Event which takes place on Sunday in the Main Event Super Satellite. There are a total of 20 seats guaranteed into this big Main Event (worth £110 each) and you can give yourself a chance of competing in the tournament for a buy in of just £24.

If you are looking for some top quality Poker in the run up and throughout Easter, then why not join Sky Poker today and claim your free £10 starter no deposit bonus and give yourself every chance of  participating in one of the biggest and best online poker tournaments in the UK.

An Additional Extra To Note With Sky Poker: The UKOPS XIX Total Player Leaderboard

If you are likely to play in several of these top tournaments with Sky Poker over the course of the UKOPS, then did you know that if you enjoy some success you could earn yourself one of 20 additional prizes thanks to the Sky Poker UKOPS XIX Total Player Leaderboard promotion.

Every tournament contested will see players that finish in cash out positions earn themselves some points for their play. Cash out outside the top ten and you earn five points. 7th to 10th earns 10 points, 6th earns 15 points, 5th gives you 20 points, 4th 25 points, 3rd 30 points, 2nd 40 points and if you win the tournament you bag the maximum of 50 points.

Over the course of the series, the number of points players win will accrue and a leaderboard will be updated on Sky Poker regularly. At the end of the tournament the top 20 players will win a number of prizes based on Sky Poker’s current Viva Las Vegas promotion, which is offering the chance to win a prize package to Las Vegas as a top prize.

The 20 prizes available are buy ins to different Las Vegas tournaments including one ticket into the Main Event for the winner, with tickets also available to be won for the Side Final, Main Semi and Side Semi events too.

So if you are bored of Easter eggs and repeats on the TV, why not head down to Sky Poker to enjoy some fantastic UKOPS poker this week?
