Battle of the Bars
Play in this unique teamed poker tournament. You and another player will team up and play against other teams. You will switch out periodically and play a full blind level or two. Then your partner sits in and plays. You only have one stack of chips so you and partner will have to work together to keep gaining chips and maintaining your stack. (see BOB Rules and Structure) In order for you to participate in Battle of the Bars you and your teammate must both be qualified for the Main Event.
