UCOP: WarmUp, Mini and Passport

We’re getting off to a banging micro start to 2019!

The UCOP (Universal Championship of Online Poker) is back, and as usual, redbet is making sure the micro guys have a chance to compete with the deep wallets and sharks.

UCOP WarmUp redbetWe’ve started UCOP early with a “WarmUp” series of 1c madcap rebuys.
Super cheap, super fun and a nice way to build a micro-roll to prepare for UCOP: Mini.
Every day between 1st-13th January there will be four tournaments with a 1c buyin and €25 gtd between 7pm-8pmGMT.
Three players only required to start the clock on these, and they are fast, unlimited rebuy, NLHE tournaments (15 mins only late reg/rebuy).

The UCOP: Mini is a series of micro poker tournaments that runs between 13th-27th January and the full schedule can be found
Satellites to the events are running from very small buyins, and we hope your bankroll from the UCOP: WarmUp series gets you through!

The UCOP: Passport is a series of larger buyin tournaments that runs from 27th January- 10th February, with the full schedule available here.
This is the big boy, and satties will run throughout the UCOP: Mini and UCOP: Passport periods.

Goodbye 2018!

This time of year is usually pretty exhausting… assuming you’re an adult, obviously! Kids are having a great time right now.

Sometimes I do feel like a bit of a kid, I work in the gaming industry, and not in one of the serious jobs like legal or compliance.
I get to play and market my favourite game in the world… THE POKERS!!

The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) is settling into its new software followng launch on redbet in September; no-one’s pretending there aren’t bugs, we’re not blind, but I can see the work they are doing, and I’m excited for 2019 in that respect.
Alex Scott is the boss of MPN, and he and his team are very committed, and are pushed and nagged by the various brand managers on the network.

We don’t think we always get it right, but we absolutely know we care about getting it right.

If you want to get involved in the discussion you can go to the MPN thread on 2+2 and talk directly to the head of poker (Alex), the online poker room manager (Peter) and the live poker tour manager (Richard); they all  go on there regularly and answer questions.

MPN don’t hire shills and hide behind them, they take it on the chin themselves.

There’s quite a lot going on on redbet and the network to end 2018 and see in 2019.

On 30th December there will be the €50k gtd BLOWOUT tournament and satellites are already running from 10c.
At the same time the Merry Missions promotion is running, which means you can play to win from the Missions and also qualify for BLOWOUT tournament.

The live tour arm of Microgaming poker will be in Tallinn, Estonia, 24th-27th January.
Tallinn is an amazing city, and I recommend anyone should visit; it’s one of those places where you’ll never be bored if you bust the poker!merry-missions-campaign-1200x628

I can’t go myself, because I’ll be in Blackpool with the BLUFFEurope writers’ team at the APAT Team Championships; we’re trying to better our points score from last year… which was a healthy ZERO POINTS!!
If you are planning Tallinn, make sure to buy some thermals, because in January, it will be a winter wonderland.

As ever, if you have any questions, or just wanna moan about bad beats, you can hit me up directly on Facebook as Kat Redbet or on Twitter as Redbet Kat!

I wish you all a joyful festive season, and hope you get some new year rungood!
