LEADERBOEARD

Are you up for a challenge? Join our bonus point race where every €1 equals 1 point on the leaderboard. And on top of the coolest title ever, the winning prize is €10,000 in cold cash!

But you can’t become The Greatest Poker Player in the Universe through sheer luck, you’ll need to be consistent and play multiple types of poker.

The leaderboard will track your progress throughout the UCOP, and there are several ways to earn points.

Play and win

  • Every €1 won in UCOP = 1 point
  • Cash in 2 or more events = 500 points
  • Play Event #5, Event #7 and any rebuy event = 1,000 points
  • Play all events in the series (only one ‘Day 1’ from Event #5 is required) = 2,000 points

NB: A maximum of 2,000 points is available for playing multiple events.

  1. The promotion runs from September 4th until September 11th 2016.
  2. No alternative prizes will be offered, and why would you want them? Our prizes are pretty fly.
  3. Only Events 1 to 24 of the Universal Championship of Poker count towards the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe leaderboard.
  4. Satellites, freerolls, play money games, games of truth or dare, Buckaroo, and other random games don’t count towards the leaderboard. Not this leaderboard, anyway.
  5. Conditions relating to Event #5 (Mixed Game):
    • Event #5 is one event and is treated as such for the calculation of leaderboard points.
    • Each Day 1 flight of Event #5 may have a different starting chip stack, in order to encourage participation in less popular games.
    • 10% of the field from each Day 1 flight moves forward to Day 2, carrying their chip stack with them.
    • If you qualify for Day 2, we do not recommend that you play another Day 1 flight. If you qualify for Day 2 multiple times, only your first chip stack will carry forward to Day 2. For each subsequent win, you will receive a €100 ticket which will be automatically exchanged for cash by 00:59 CET on 20 September 2016.
  6. Because there can only be one Greatest Poker Player in the Universe, in case of a tie for first place, the winner will be the player who won most money in UCOP. In case there is a tie for any other leaderboard position, the prizes will be divided equally among the tied players.
  7. If you win the Greatest Poker Player in the Universe title, we will use your real name, country, likeness, blood group (not really) and other publicly available information about you in marketing and publicity campaigns relating to UCOP.
  8. Despite what you may have heard, we are human. We need a few days to work out the leaderboard points and prizes. So leaderboard prizes will be awarded by 23:59 GMT on 19 September 2016.
  9. Paf reserves the right to cancel or change the campaign at any time.
  10. Our general terms and conditions apply, read more.
