Team UB “New and Younger”

February 2, 2011

While Team UB has lost a couple key players as of late (Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth), they’ve gained just as many. After acquiring Prahlad Freidman last month, Team UB has confirmed Eric Baldwin for two additional years after a successful first year partnership that began in December 2009.

Baldwin says, “Signing again with was a no-brainer. I like the direction that the site is headed and I’m really feeling the new, younger Team UB. I’m excited to continue to be a big part of it.”

It is an obvious plus for to re-sign with Baldwin. The poker pro landed $1.4 million in winnings in live tournament cashes alone. He was just as successful in 2009 and named Card Player Magazine’s Player of the Year. He landed in the 6th place spot in Bluff Magazine’s 2010 Player of the Year list, and he also got first place in the NAPT LA Bounty Shootout which earned him more than $157K. He also finished in 59th place in WSOP Main Event, cashing out with $138K+. He also finished in the money in three other WSOP events in 2010. He took home a bracelet in 2009 as well in the $1,500 NLH event, for which he earned more than half a million dollars. Baldwin’s career winnings total more than $4.2 million.

Despite the loss of two of the brand’s biggest named pros, seems to be reinventing itself as a younger and fresher online poker club and recovering from the cheating scandals that once plagued the brand.
