Ultimate Poker Championship Main Event "Largest Ever"

Nevada regulated Ultimate Poker brought its first Ultimate Poker Championship (UPC) to a convincing end on Sunday by beating the $100k guarantee it offered for the $300 buy-in Main Event.

358 entries created a prize pool of just over the magic $100k mark, making it the largest prize pool yet in Nevada’s nascent regulated online poker market.

First place went to “crush” who earned more than $24k for just over six hours of play. He managed to get all in on the final hand with a pair of kings against “JloBooty” who held a pair of queens.

Ultimate Poker tweeted the important facts:

The eleven event series also handed out a UPC watch to the winner of each tournament.
