Card Player Magazine Player of the Year Lands at UB.com

December 24, 2009 · Posted in Poker News, WSOP · Comments Off on Card Player Magazine Player of the Year Lands at UB.com 

Less than one week after earning Player of the Year title, top ranked poker player joins UB.com’s Team UB.

After taking the poker circuit by storm and tearing up the tables for $1.5 million in 2009 alone, Eric Baldwin has landed at UB.com, the site today confirmed. The announcement comes just days after Card Player declared Eric Baldwin the 2009 Player of the Year.

Eric Baldwin isn’t just a new UB pro, he is UB. Eric loves this game more than anything in the world, he plays to win, and he’s respected for his passion at the tables. We really couldn’t be more ecstatic to have the Player of the Year on our team.

Since beginning his poker career just a few years ago, Baldwin has built a reputation as one of the most dangerous poker players to ever play the game – online and off. He’s also garnered the respect of his peers for his down-to-earth persona, building a name for himself without losing the everyman qualities that have made him so revered.

Along the way, 26-year-old Baldwin has also amassed a small fortune, winning over $2.6 million at the land-based and online poker tables. In 2009, Baldwin earned $1.5 million playing poker, a figure that matches the lifetime winnings of some seasoned poker pros. This year alone, Baldwin has made 17 final tables, including one at UB.com’s signature Aruba Poker Classic. Baldwin finished in 4th place of the $5,500 Main Event for a $126,710 payday. He holds the record for most final table appearances in 2009.

But it’s not just about final tabling tournaments. It’s about winning them. Most recently, Baldwin finished first in Event #15 of the 2009 Five Diamond World Poker Classic at Bellagio, securing $256,600 for his win. Other notable first place finishes in 2009 include a $198,933 win in Event #24 of the 2009 Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza II, and a $521,932 bracelet win at this year’s World Series of Poker.

I am eager to be a part of UB’s new brand direction. I carefully weighed my sponsorship opportunities over the last couple of months and after meeting with UB officials and the Team UB pros, it’s very clear that UltimateBet.com is the perfect fit.

Sports Betting Might Return to Delaware

Lottery-style Wagering on the Agenda

Legal, lottery-style betting on professional and college sports events might be coming to Delaware. Several recent developments could prompt lawmakers to activate the state’s exemption from the 1992 federal law that generally bans such gambling.

Sports Betting at Sportsbook.comThe governor who opposed sports betting has departed after serving two four-year terms, the maximum allowed. The state projects an estimated $600,000,000 budget deficit for the fiscal year beginning July 1st. Horse racing and slot machines, which have been the pillars of Delaware’s gaming industry, are up against challenges from the introduction and approval of slot machines in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Sports Betting at Superbook.comDelaware’s House of Representatives passed a sports-betting bill in 2008, but it didn’t get past a state Senate committee because of disagreements over operational details, as well as then-Governor Ruth Ann Minner’s opposition.

House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf and Senate Majority Leader Tony DeLuca say a sports betting bill will be introduced after legislators reconvene March 17th. “A properly written bill stands a pretty good chance” of becoming law, Schwartzkopf said.

The Governor has asked the state’s finance office to speak with companines that would be interested in running a sports lottery about the amounts of direct and ancillary revenue this type of betting could produce.

Sports Betting at BetUS.comDelaware, Montana, Nevada, and Oregon have exceptions to the federal sports-betting ban because they had forms of legalized pro and college sports betting before or close to the time when legislation was introduced in 1991. Nevada was the only state with largely unlimited sports betting. Delaware and Oregon had operated sports lotteries, so-named because they require players to wager on more than one outcome in a single bet, know as a parlay. Doing so creates more of an element of chance than is involved with betting on a single outcome in a sporting event.
