MPN will crown the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe this September The MPN announces the second annual Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP), boasting €500,000 guaranteed across 24 tournament events between 4th and 11th September 2016. A trophy and €10,000 cash prize awaits the player crowned The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe.
There are hundreds of world champions from many different countries. Some were made in the real world, in Las Vegas, Monte Carlo or Macau. More recently, world champions have been made online. But only the MPN can crown The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe.
To be in with a chance of earning the most prestigious title in poker (and the trophy to prove it), players not only have to be winners, they need to demonstrate the characteristics of a great player. They will need to be consistent. They will need to play multiple types of poker, not just Hold’em. And like all truly great poker players, they will need to help grow the game of poker for the future.
Players’ progress will be tracked on The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe leader board. Players can earn points towards the leader board in many different ways, including:
- Winning money in Universal Championship of Poker events
- Succeeding in multiple variants of poker
- Streaming events on Twitch or other online streaming services
- Sharing the game with friends and followers on Twitter
The ultimate winner receives €10,000 in cash, the title of ‘Greatest Poker Player in the Universe’ and a whopping big trophy to boot. Players finishing 2nd to 10th on the leader board will receive consolation prizes.
Alex Scott, Head of Poker at Microgaming, comments: “The Universal Championship of Poker is back, and it’s bigger, better and bouncier than ever! We’ve more than doubled our total guarantee since last year, and we’ve added some fun events including our first mixed game event. Always aiming to be unique, no other poker network can award you the ‘Greatest Poker Player in the Universe’ title!”
