Pro Bounty Madness Continues at UB.com, and This Time 'Hollywood' Dave Is a Marked Man in the Site's Tuesday Night Sniper $25K GTD

Team UB Pro 'Hollywood' Dave Joins the Growing List of the Online Poker Site's Pros Who Host Their Own Weekly Bounty Tournament, Beginning This Tuesday November 23rd at 21:00 ET

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - November 18, 2010) - UB.com is adding to their line-up of weekly Pro Bounty tourneys yet again, and now 'Hollywood' Dave Stann takes his turn at the felt, with his first recurring hosting gig scheduled for this coming Tuesday, November 23rd. The former 'Bad Boy of Blackjack,' Honors BFA Theater graduate, and MENSA member who plays at UB as HOLLYWOODDAVE, is set to take control of the $120+10 buy-in weekly Sniper $25K GTD each Tuesday at 21:00 ET.

"Nothing this bad boy likes more than a good ol' fashioned sniper tourney! Kinda levels the playing field, since everyone's already gunning for my special bounty -- at least now I get something for knocking YOU guys out, too," said Team UB Pro Stann.

Every Tuesday evening from November 23rd, the Texas Hold 'em action gets a Hollywood makeover. Team UB Pro 'Hollywood' Dave takes command of the leading online poker room's $25K GTD Sniper tourney, in which online poker players have a shot at a share of the $25,000 prize pool, plus the chance to take down the colorful Stann, sending him like a skittle to the rails; the player who successfully knocks him out of the tournament will earn automatic entry to UB's $200+15 buy-in $200K GTD the following Sunday.

'Hollywood' Dave Stann first transitioned from the Blackjack tables to making poker his game back in 2006, when he spent six months trading blackjack lessons for some expert poker training with UB's Cardroom Consultant Annie Duke. In 2007, he put what he'd learned to the test, and went on to win nearly a quarter of a million dollars playing Hold 'em. In 2008, he proved he was no flash in the pan when he cashed at the World Series of Poker, enjoyed a strong showing in a Caesar's Palace circuit event, and bagged back-to-back third place finishes at the Bicycle Casino.

This dynamic member of Team UB loves his No Limit Hold 'em tourneys, but he can mostly be found tearing up the PLO8 tables at UB.com, and if there's a challenge of a mixed game thrown his way, he'll happily spend hours playing HORSE.

Never one to stay still for too long, Stann always has a plan brewing for something, be it hosting more gaming television, authoring more books, traveling the world in search of a great poker tourney, getting back to his acting roots and treading the boards in theater, or better still starring in a his first independent film. Whatever he turns his hand to either at the poker table or beyond, expect the 'Hollywood' resident to be noticed, and of course, to excel.

Pro Bounty Madness gets crazy with 'Hollywood' Dave every Tuesday at 21:00 ET at UB.com's online poker tables.
