MPN’s UCOP Finale Tournament Series Features €500,000 In Guaranteed Prizes, €20,000 Leaderboard

The Microgaming Poker Network is set to deal its last hand sometime in May. But before that, there is still a lot of poker to be played. This January, the popular poker network is offering players a final chance to participate in its heralded Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP). Because this event will be the final version of the popular online tournament series, it has been dubbed by the network as the UCOP Grand Finale.

Starting January 19th and running through February 2nd, UCOP will hold 54 events with €500,000 in guaranteed prizes awarded.  Satellites begin January 6th starting at €0.01.  The series will also bring back at the UCOP Leaderboard which adds another €20,000 in value as well as the “Great Poker Player in the Universe” Trophy.

UCOP Grande Finale begins January 19th, 2020

Over the course of the UCOP’s two weeks, 54 tournaments will be held with the action kicking off with the €7,500 Monster Reby 6 Max event on January 19th at 16:00 GMT. The UCOP will culminate with the €110 buy-in €50,000 UCOP Main Event on February 2nd held at 17:00 GMT.

If you win any of the first 48 events you will even receive a €110 ticket to the €50,000 Main Event.

The tournaments in between will consist of a wide range of tournaments with buy-ins from €2.20 to €320. Most of the tournaments of the UCOP will be No Limit Hold’em, but you will also find a handful of Pot Limit Omaha events as well. Below is a full list of the UCOP events with tournament details:

UCOP Leaderboard

MPN is rewarding frequent players of the UCOP Finale with a leaderboard that will award an additional €20,000 in prizes, split between the top 20 performers of the series. The top prize will receive the coveted 2019 Great Poker Player in the Universe trophy, €3,100 in online tournament tickets, €1,000 in cash and a player’s choice prize. A full list of prizes is as follows:

  • 1st: Greatest Poker Player in the Universe 2019 trophy + €3,100 Online Tournament Tickets Package + €1,000 Cash + Player’s Choice Prize (worth €1,000 to €1,550)
  • 2nd: €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package + €500 Cash
  • 3rd: €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package + €300 Cash
  • 4th: €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package + €100 Cash

  • 11th – 12th: 3x €110 Online Tournament Tickets
  • 13th – 20th: 1x €110 Online Tournament Ticket

How are UCOP points earned?

Unlike most leaderboards that reward the earning of points, top players of the UCOP Leaderboard are determined by those that earn the fewest points. MPN does this by awarding 1 point for the winner of 1st place in each tournament, 2 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd place and so on. A player not entering a UCOP tournament will receive points equal to the number of entrants plus 1.

Although you will maximize your chances of earning fewer points by entering every tournament, MPN does give you a chance to take a break. MPN will throw out your first 15 scores of the UCOP when calculating your final score.

UCOP Tournament of Champions

In addition to receiving a free entry into the €50,000 UCOP Main Event, the 54 players who win a UCOP will also receive entry into the Tournament of Champions set for February 16th at 19:00 GMT.

The top 8 players in the tournament will receive a piece of €2,760 in tournament tickets.

  • 1st: €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package
  • 2nd: 5x €110 Online Tournament Tickets
  • 3rd: 3x €110 Online Tournament Tickets
  • 4th: 2x €110 Online Tournament Tickets
  • 5th-8th: 1x €110 Online Tournament Ticket
