UB.com Keeps the Tournament Action Coming With More Pro Bounty Madness on the Cards

Team UB Pro Players Maria Ho and Adam "Roothlus" Levy Now Have Their Own Bounty Tournaments at UB.com, So Get Set to Take on the Pros Each Tuesday and Sunday

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - UB.com is giving online poker players more access to their Team UB Pros at the tables, and not just during short term promotions, but on a regular basis. That's the idea behind the Pro Bounty Madness Tournament Series; new to the line-up is a Tuesday night 6-seated event featuring Maria Ho, and an early Sunday evening Rebuy tourney, with Adam "ROOTHLUS" Levy, each of them set to launch this week.

Recent addition to Team UB MARIA_HO steps up to host her very own weekly $50K GTD 6-seated No Limit Hold 'em tournament every Tuesday at 20:30 ET. The first of these $300+20 buy-in events will debut at the leading online poker room on Tuesday, February 1st

Ho is fresh from a superb runner-up finish in the Aussie Millions $10,500 8-Game Mixed title, so she's tournament fit and ready to take on the competition. Along with the $50,000 guaranteed prize money, players will vie for the prestige that comes with sending Ho packing, and a not too shabby Bounty of $300 in tournament dollars. Satellites are also running for Ho's Pro Bounty event, starting from as low as $10+1.

Those who like the prospect of taking a shot at a UB Pro, take note, because there's another chance each Sunday at 17:30 ET, from Sunday, February 6th onwards. With over $3.2 million in total pro poker career earnings and a 12th place finish at the 2010 WSOP Main Event, ROOTHLUS is no push over at the felt. The well-credentialed UB Pro ROOTHLUS will lead the action in his $100+9 buy-in Rebuys tourney that boasts a $60K GTD prize pool. The player who proves good enough to knock ROOTHLUS to the rails will earn a $215 entry for UB's $200K GTD tournament the following Sunday.

Pro Bounty Madness continues on Tuesdays with Trishelle Cannatella at 21:20 ET and Hollywood Dave at 21:00 ET, and with Joe Sebok at 21:00 ET on Wednesdays -- all at UB.com's online poker tables.

So players, park your chips next to a UB Pro, take one out of the game, and pick up a range of bounty prizes to boot.
