UCOP Mini For Budget Bankrolls

For any players who find the UCOP Passport series buy-ins a bit too steep, there’s no need to worry or over-stretch your budget. The UCOP Mini tournaments are just for you. This special series mirrors all 56 UCOP Passport events, but in 1/10th scale. The buy-ins, prize pools, and leaderboard point values are all set at exactly one-tenth of the larger Passport event series.

UCOP Mini tournaments got underway on Sunday, and will continue through January 27. Then on January 28, the larger UCOP Passport events begin, and run through February 10, culminating in the MPN Tournament of Champions on February 17, 2019 at 18:00 GMT.

The only way to gain access to the Tournament of Champions is to win any UCOP Passport tournament. The winner of the Tournament of Champions will receive an MPN Poker Tour package worth €1,500.
