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.
