Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) confirmed a new edition of the Universal Championship of Online Poker (UCOP). This great series will bring 94 events. It will take place from 15th September until 29th September. Find all the details in the text below.

Universal Championship


A few weeks ago, Alex Scott, Managing Director of the MPN poker division announced that we will have another UCOP this year. To remind you, the network has already hosted a UCOP series this year in April. Alex also said that we’ll have the chance to compare both festivals, although it’s still unclear whether this edition will feature the traditional leaderboard.

Let’s make a comparison of these two UCOP Series:

Universal Championship 1

The only thing that will remain the same is the range of buy-ins. Like the last time, they will start from €3,3  and go all the way up to €320.

Distribution of Universal Championship of Online Poker tournaments by buy-ins:

Universal Championship 2

As you can see, the majority of the UCOP tournaments will have the buy-ins between €11 and €110.

Of course, there will be various tournament formats. Check out the Distribution of UCOP tournaments by type:

Universal Championship 3


The Universal Championship of Online Poker Main Events:


  •  Event 48, €30,000 GTD, €110 buy-in;
  •  Main Event, €100,000 GTD (Freezeout), €110 buy-in;
  •  High Roller, €40,000 GTD (Freezeout), €320 buy-in.

 The schedule also includes eight PLO tournaments. The large ones are the #35 and #45, with €55 and €110 buy-ins respectively and the same €7,500 GTD prize pool.


If you like the UCOP series and you still don’t have the account at MPN, we bring you our best choices: Betsson poker, Betsafe poker, and Nordicbet. Check which benefits you get if you signup with us at our Poker Deals page.

PokerStars introduced another innovation for the cash game tables – All-in Cash Out. Check out what is it all about and see whether you like it or not.

All-in Cash Out

All players will find themselves in an all-in situation at some point, with all their chips at stake and no way to further influence the hand.

When there are community cards still to come, even a big favorite will get unlucky and lose the hand sometimes.

All-in Cash Out is a feature that gives eligible players who are all-in the option to collect the value of their hand without having to play the hand to its conclusion.

How All-in Cash out works?


When an all-in situation occurs in a cash game and players’ hands are revealed (before the river and with no more action pending), PokerStars calculates each hand’s probability to win the pot and assign cash out valu and any side pots in which they are involved) as usual.

Once a player chooses to cash out they will no longer be eligible to contest any portion of the pot. They will receive the offered amount added to their stack immediately.

Players declining the cash out option will still need the best hand at showdown to win the pot, even if all their opponents have cashed out.

Calculating the Cash Out Amount

The cash out value offered is calculated per the formula below:

Hand value = (pot size – rake) x probability of winning

PokerStars apply a 1% cash out fee on the value of your hand (not the entire pot), deducted prior to offering the cash out amount.

You can opt-out from the All-in Cash Out feature entirely via the ‘Settings’ menu.


Game: 0.5/1 No-Limit Hold’em

Pot: 100 (rake 2.5)

Pre-flop, Player 1 has a pair of aces and a winning probability of 81.95%, while Player 2 has a pair of kings and a winning probability of 18.05%.

Player 1’s cash out value will be: (100 – 2.5) x 81.95% x 99% = 79.10

Player 2’s cash out value will be: (100 – 2.5) x 18.05% x 99% = 17.42

Team Online’s Patrick “Egption” Tardif managed to navigate himself to two POWERFEST final tables on Day 6 of POWERFEST X, narrowly missing out on a brace of titles.

Thirteen champions were crowned on Day 6 with another $390,852 distributed among those 13 events, taking the total prize money awarded to $9,846,026 as we approach the halfway stage of the $28 million guaranteed series.

POWERFEST X: The Story So Far

  • Events remaining: 154
  • Prize money awarded: $10,392,420

Places paid: 40

The first event that Tardif reached the final table of was the $320 buy-in POWERFEST #28-H: $75K Gtd PKO. Tardif was one of 277 entries who helped create an $85,316 prize pool, over $10,000 more than the advertised guarantee.

With bounties included, none of the eight finalists walked away with less than $2,100, a great return on their initial investment.

“Tommm” was the first casualty of the final table, their eighth-place finish banking them $907 plus $1,288 worth of bounty payments. They were joined on the rail first by “DaleJordan1”who won a POWERFEST event on Day 5, “Valhalla”, “NicoMaserati57” and then by Tardiff whose fourth-place exit saw him net $3,333 plus $1,649 from the bounty prize pool.

The penultimate elimination was that of “Viktor_Navorski” who won $4,580 plus $868. “BIGMONEYSALVIA” then busted in second place for $6,526 plus an impressive $4,528 worth of bounties, leaving “Hendlemann69” to collect the $6,535 top prize and $7,580 worth of scalps.

Prize pool: $25,480
ITM players: 32

The $109 POWERFEST #29-H: $25K Gtd Deep Turbo only took four hours and 38 minutes to complete thanks to its turbo blind structure, meaning everyone’s hourly rate was vastly improved, especially that of “NostatsNograts” who won the $5,195 top prize who won approximately $1,150 per hour of the tournament.

Before the final table was reached, Matt “MatthewStaples” Staples and Louise “lou045” Butler finished inside the money places for scores of $264.This sum increased to $586 by the time the final table was reached.

Heads-up saw “Bulbasaur165” and “NostatsNograts” lock horns heads-up and it was the Pokemon character who busted. Bulbasaur165 netted $3,771 for their runner-up finish with the champion receiving $5,195 and plenty of congrats despite not having any HUD stats!

Day 6 was a big day at partypoker because there was a trio of massive tournaments taking place, one with a $10,300 buy-in, another costing $5,200, and a third weighing in at $2,100. It was an excellent day for the player known as “ChimneyBarrel” as they navigated their way to two of these huge tournaments’ final tables. Let’s discover which right now.



Entries: 100
Buy-in: $10,300
Prize pool: $1,000,000
Places paid: 16

Exactly 100 players bought into the POWERFEST #22-SHR: $1M Gtd for $10,300 to ensure the $1 million guaranteed prize pool was hit. This gargantuan prize was shared among the top 16 finishers, with “Kanchenjunga” being the unfortunate soul to burst the money bubble.

Everyone else locked up at least $20,000 for their effort, with Team partypoker’s Roberto “R_Romanello” Romanello banking $25,000 for his 11th place finish.

Each of the eight finalists secured a $32,500 payday, the sum given to “OmarsComing”. Seventh-place and $40,000 went to “Elvallekas” before Player Panel member Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard fell in sixth place for $50,000.

“TheDrino” busted in fifth place for $65,000 before “PauliBet” saw their tournament end in fourth place for $87,500; they were the last player not to win a six-figure prize.

“ChimeyBarrel” then exited in third place for $125,000 and was followed to the sidelines by “BuddyRW” who lost heads-up against “kristian150”. Second place was worth $175,000 with the champion banking a cool $245,000.

POWERFEST #23-SHR: $400K Gtd PLO 6-Max

Entries: 78
Buy-in: $5,200
Prize pool: $400,000
Places paid: 12

POWERFEST #23-SHR: $400K Gtd PLO 6-Max cost $5,200 to enter and saw a field of 78 battle it out on six-handed tables for a slice of $400,000.

Team partypoker’s Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen crept into the cash and finished in 11th place for $10,959. The prize money increased to $17,000 by the time the six-handed final table was set, “Grazvis1” being the first casualty under the lights.

“TheRealGrizzly1” fell in fifth for a $25,000 addition to their bankroll before “HosseinEnsan”, bearing the name of the reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion, busted in fourth for $35,000.

Third place and $48,000 went to “trustnobody_99” which set up a one-on-one clash between ChimneyBarrel and “vodkasoda”. It was the latter who emerged from battle unscathed, securing the $125,122 top prize and leaving ChimneyBarrel to add $78,000 to the $125,000 they won in the $1M Gtd event earlier.

Entries: 129
Buy-in: $2,100
Prize pool: $264,450
Places paid: 20

The $2,100 buy-in we spoke about was a PKO event, the POWERFEST #24-HR: $250K Gtd PKOto be exact, and it crated some sizable bounty payments, especially for those who navigated their way to the eight-handed final table.

Nobody locked up more from the bounty prize pool than the champion “dollar007” whose $22,775 top prize was bolstered by an incredible $44,058 thanks to them also winning the prize that was on their own head.

One other player, “Tigerbluff”, banked five-figures worth of bounties. Tigerbluff has made several deep runs during the opening week of POWERFEST X and finished third in this tournament for $16,554 plus $14,166 worth of scalps, meaning they walked away with a combined prize worth more than second-placed “CocaineKiller” did.

Shout-out to sixth-place finisher “JailWallet” who managed to win $7,021 from the bounty prize pool before busting out.
