yes ultimate bet some strong and old signed players rules like Phil or anny how long they are there 3-5 years i dont remember but they on top only . the better players of poker choose pokerstart or fulltilt poker teams all that left is only semi pro players and they join this sites like ultimate and over not very impresive poker sites and poker teams good job this year do Eric Baldwin but he play not very well hi is more lucky this year some games at final table i saw and on the rivers about 75 5 he got luck
