UB.com Extend Eric Baldwin Sponsorship

Eric BaldwinThere has been no shortage of changes at UB.com (Ultimate Bet) recently as far as the sponsored poker pros are concerned. Most notable among these modifications have been the parting of ways of Phil Helmuth and Annie Duke. It has been announced that poker pro, Eric Baldwin has re-signed as a part of Team UB.  Following a successful first year at UB, Eric Baldwin has officially signed a contract renewal for another two years.

Baldwin originally joined UB on a one year contract at the end of 2009, a short time after being announced as Card Player’s 2009 Player of the Year.  Eric Baldwin made a name for himself in the poker world in 2009 when he won a bracelet at the World Series of Poker Event #34.  He earned more than half a million dollars for his efforts and has continued to earn impressive amounts since then at various poker events.  Since Baldwin became a part of UB, his total winnings are reported to be approximately $2.6 million, while lifetime earnings from live tournaments are believed to be in excess of $1.75 million. At just 27, Baldwin is a young player that has turned into an imposing poker player both in online poker gaming and at live tournaments.

Team UB has experienced various changes in the last few months with the recent departures of poker pros Phil Helmuth and Annie Duke and the addition of Prahlad Friedman.  This re-signing by Eric Baldwin perhaps offers a sense of stability and continuity and a possible signal of future direction to the Team UB. The team of pros presently includes players Prahlad Friedman, Joe Sebok, Maria Ho, Hollywood Dave, Brandon Cantu, Tiffany Michelle, Adam Levy, Scott Ian, Brian Devonshire and of course, Eric Baldwin.  Baldwin is believed to be pleased about his contract renewal at UB and excited about possible expansions and additions in the future.

This site offers excellent monthly promotions, huge tournaments (including a weekly $200k guaranteed), juicy cash-games, and all new players who use UB bonus code PSR100 will receive a 111% up to $1,100 welcome bonus.
