UB Poker is running Centerfold Bounty Tournaments

We’ve recently seen Victory Poker running promotions involving the chance to play poker against centerfold models. Perhaps UB Poker has noticed this too since they’ve decided to bring back their Centerfold Bounty tournaments. As the name implies, the Centerfold Bounty tournaments allow you to collect a $200 bounty after knocking out a centerfold. And what’s great about these events is that any poker tournament could become a Centerfold Bounty tourney. Last Thursday, UB’s $75,000 Guaranteed holdem poker event became a Centerfold Bounty tournament, and several models played in it. So in addition to already playing for a $75k prize pool …
