Earlier this year in May, two of India's leading tournament brands, Aces Unlimited and India Poker Championship decided to collaborate and create another exciting new tournament poker brand in the Ultimate Poker Challenge (UPC). The UPC is back once again from 6 - 9 September at the Pride Poker Room aboard Casino Pride in Panjim, Goa.
The organisers have made a couple of changes in the schedule of the upcoming edition. The Main Event will now have an INR 25,000 buy-in as compared to INR 50,000 from last time. Also gone is the Bounty tournament from Sunday night which is replaced with a INR 10,000 Headsup Challenge which should be an interesting addition to the line-up.
The full schedule is as follows:-
|Date||Time||Tournament||Buy-in (INR)||Guarantee (INR)|
|6th Sep||8:30pm||5k Freezeout||5,000||3,00,000|
|7th Sep||8:30pm||10k Freezeout||10,000||4,00,000|
|8th Sep||8:30pm||25k Main Event: Day 1||25,000||10,00,000|
|9th Sep||6:00pm||25k Main Event: Day 2||—||—|
|9th Sep||8:30pm||10k Headsup Challenge||10,000||—|
