UB.net has taken over as title sponsor for the Heartland Poker Tour's seventh season.

The televised grassroots poker tour, which was previously sponsored by PokerStars, has confirmed stops in Colorado, Oklahoma, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Florida and Nevada this season.

The HPT broadcast is available in over 100 million US households in addition to widespread distribution throughout Europe and the Caribbean.

"What HPT has been able to do is fantastic," said Team UB Pro Joe Sebok.

"The best kept secret in poker with their homegrown events and national television exposure, they simply get bigger and better every year out.

"For us, to come in and back their product, we know we'll help to shine a spotlight on HPT like never before. So, expect more players having some fun at the HPT tables and overall richer prize pools across the tour."

UB.net will have a prominent presence in all HPT Season 7 TV episodes, on the web at hptpoker.com and on-site at HPT live events.

UB.net will give away seats to live events and host a online poker freeroll challenge awarding a Season 8 HPT VIP Tour Pass.

Members of Team UB, including Sebok, Eric Baldwin, Brandon Cantu, and Adam Levy will also rep the brand at HPT events and provide guest commentary for TV broadcasts.

"Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho are fan favorites after playing a few HPT events," said HPT Executive Producer and Co-founder Greg Lang. "We're looking forward to seeing them more often, as well as other members of Team UB."
