Eric Baldwin Re-Signs With UB.com for Two More Years

WSOP Bracelet Winner With Over $4.2 Million in Poker Winnings Says Yes Again to UB.com

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - Team UB's roster of poker professionals continues to get stronger and louder. Team UB pro Eric Baldwin, a serious force in online poker and live events, has signed on with UB.com for another two years after a successful first year representing the popular online poker site. Baldwin was officially patched by UB.com in December 2009.

"Signing again with UB.com was a no-brainer," stated Eric Baldwin. "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."

Baldwin's re-signing for another two years comes just three weeks after the online poker site scored a major coup by signing much sought-after poker phenomenon Prahlad Friedman. The WSOP bracelet winner and multi-million dollar cash game champion had dodged a deal with any online poker site for years, disappointing the big players.

UB.com's desire to ink another deal with Baldwin comes as no surprise. The poker professional's 2010 land-based event cashes alone topped $1.4 million. In 2009, he was equally successful in live events while winning Card Player Magazine's Player of the Year honor. He finished 6th in Bluff Magazine's 2010 Player of the Year race and currently ranks 2nd in the Bluff Magazine/ESPN Poker Power Rankings.

In November 2010, Baldwin took first place in the NAPT LA Bounty Shootout event for $157,280. At last year's World Series of Poker, Baldwin finished 59th in the Main Event for $138,245 and cashed in three additional WSOP events. In 2009, he captured his first WSOP bracelet in a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em tournament that netted him $521,932.

To date, Baldwin has earned over $4.2 million playing poker. Online poker players at UB.com can employ the online poker site's free UltimateBuddy feature to discover where Eric Baldwin is playing.
