Player of the year signs with Ultimate Bet

Tags: eric baldwin, phil hellmuth, player of the year, rakeback, ultimate bet.
Posted on 23 December 2009 by "T".

Everything seems to go Eric Baldwin's way at the moment. First he had a fantastic 2009 and won over $1.5 million in different live tournaments, then he was voted player of the year by one of the biggest poker magazines, then  Ultimate Bet asked him to join their team, which he gladly said yes to. His teammates at Ultimate Bet will now be some of the worlds best - Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke and Brandon Cantu -just to mention a few.

Didn't become player of the year for nothing
2009 has been a great year for Eric Baldwin, and its not for nothing that he became player of the year. Just listen to this. He made it to 17 final tables in major poker tournaments and ended up winning 4 of them. However, the most notable win for Baldwin this year must be when he won Event #34 $1500 NL Hold'em in the 2009 WSOP and got his first bracelet.

 

We offer 30% rakeback at Ultimate Bet. Don't miss out on this great deal!

Waw waw waw, some nice performance from this player (i didnt knew til now). I think he deserves his title. Bravo !
For sure, he will soon be one of the legend that we see everywhere in poker (like Negreanu or Ivey)

One would expect that a good tourney player would sign with Pokerstars. Ultimate Bet must have given him a very lucrative deal.

looks likes he really deserves both his new sponsor and his player of the year title. 17 final tables and 4 wins is really impressive, good luck to him in his new team
 Wargtass23/12/2009 16:19:47 GMT
Dunno who the hell he is but good luck I guess. Smile

Dont know of him either,I would also expect him to sigh for full tilt or poker stars but as shokaku said it must be that,they gave him a very nice deal that he couldnt refuse.Bravo majstoreee

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

Took a while for someone to hire the years most talked about player in WSOP. Interesting that Ultimate Bet got him.
 DaMessiah66623/12/2009 19:37:25 GMT
I also would like to know how much could Ultimate pay for a pro ...

Good for him player of the year is some big achivement as there are sooooo many players out there to choose from...but going to Ultimate bet????? not a great move i think.
 psycokiller24/12/2009 01:46:16 GMT
Ultimate Bet definently offered him a better contract. Being able to sign new pro's to their site will go a long way to improving their image after the beating they took with the superuser accounts scandel.
I'm sure he's got the talent or else they wouldn't have tried to sign him.
 MANUEDO24/12/2009 08:17:17 GMT
Money calls money; he was able to realize his dreams, own a lots and now has a strong sponsorship. What else ? Charlize Teron ? Tila Tequila ? Eva Mendez ?
 lomax24/12/2009 08:25:48 GMT
ow much could Ultimate pay for a pro? great job, the level of this pokerrom is high if can have the player of the year. Thumbs Up
 SuperNoob24/12/2009 21:28:32 GMT
17 final tables, wow
ultimate bet have got themselves a good player.
surely they wanna stay in the market and compete with pokerstars and fulltilt.
 agusbazza24/12/2009 22:35:46 GMT
1.5 million , 17 final tables, WOW!
I think ultimate have to pay more than a FTP or PS to hire this player.
 ZmxPowah25/12/2009 08:58:09 GMT
Yea i think the same they needed to paid a nice cash to get this guy.... or nobody really care of him from the others sites Tongue , who knows ^^.
But thinking FTP take nearly all the players who can play poker Tongue it's rare to see someone sign with someone else.
 lomax25/12/2009 09:52:30 GMT
