The biggest tournament series in poker apps history
Upoker is not even two years old, but it decided to play in the big leagues by announcing a millionaire tournament series.
Scheduled to run from January 18 to March 21, 2021, the $2,000,000 GTD U-Series of Poker World of Champions will be the largest tournament series ever hosted by a mobile poker room.
What is the organizers' plan to successfully hold such a large event with only 22 tournaments, an average guaranteed prize of $91,000?
- Half of the U-Series of Poker tournaments will have a multi-day structure. For example, Kick-Off 200kGTD features 14 starting flights, which will run from January 18 to 24, with rebuys allowed.
- One-day tournaments will have 15 levels of late registration with unlimited rebuys and add-on upon completion.
- The festival will be played for two months.
You can't show Rob Yong that schedule.

*Tournaments are available in any club member of the Grand Union, almost all in Upoker. The winners of all events will receive commemorative trophies.
Will there be overlays?
Clearly, the organizers of the series wanted to impress the market with a record-breaking guarantee, but at the same time not to lost money in overlays; hence, they used all known methods to cover a prize pool.
Nevertheless, even with such a structure (many starting flights and unlimited rebuys), the overlay probability is still very high.
Judge for yourself: regular Grand tournaments in Upoker with similar buy-ins are usually multi-table SnG, not MTTs; in other words, more than 100 entries are already impressive. To cover the guarantees, the site needs to draw playing fields of at least 300 players per day.
We will be able to confirm how much our forecast will come true in late January.
