The United Bar Poker Tour has joined
forces with several companies from across the United
States. By joining forces, we have found some similarities
and some differences in regards to how the games are
operated. Some companies are self deal, and some companies
offer dealers provided for all tables. Several of the
games operate on a point system, where others award
certificates and automatic entries. To familiarize
yourselves with the type of game offered at a specific
establishment, you should click on the establishment
and check to see who the "Poker Tour" provider
is and check out them further for more rules and regulations.
The United Bar Poker Tour provides you with trained
dealers, professional tables, custom
poker tour chips and awesome prizes.
