Wake Up With UB.com's Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth on Good Morning America

Team UB Pros Selected to Help George Stephanopoulos Live Out His Dream of Playing Poker With the Biggest Names in Poker

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) -  The online poker site that's famous for its Raise, Stack, Own tagline is continuing to own the airwaves. Team UB pros Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth have been selected by George Stephanopoulos for his own personal dream fulfillment on Wednesday's edition of Good Morning America, ABC's popular morning talk show.

At the end of the month, Good Morning America will fulfill one lucky viewer's dream and throughout the course of this week, the Good Morning America hosts will reveal their dreams to viewers across the country and live them out on national TV.

For George Stephanopoulos, a former aide in the Clinton administration and current co-host of ABC's Good Morning America, the dream is to play poker with the world's best professional poker players. Stephanopoulos, who considers himself to be a fairly decent player, received personal poker training from Team UB's Annie Duke, the world's best female player, prior to sitting down for the experience of a lifetime.

On Wednesday, May 5th, Stephanopoulos will take a seat with Duke and 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth in Atlantic City to play out the game of his dreams.

This isn't the first time Team UB pros have taken over the airwaves. Annie Duke was recently crowned National Heads-Up Champion on NBC and in 2009, Duke made the final two in NBC's Celebrity Apprentice. Tiffany Michelle, another Team UB pro, was a contestant on the CBS television series The Amazing Race, and respected poker pro Joe Sebok is the co-host of poker lifestyle show Poker2Nite, which airs on VERSUS in the US.

Poker fans interested in living out their own poker dream can follow in the footsteps of George Stephanopoulos by downloading UB.com and playing with the pros online.
