Despite the scandal (remembers on the pot he had won on the UltimateBet tables with the worst hand?), Phil "The Poker Brat" Hellmuth was so far the representative of poker Ultimate Bet room.
But rumors circulate today on Twoplustwo to the effect that it would no longer be spokesman for UB.com. UB.com questioned on this subject denies the new. Yet, recently, during the Main Event and the NAPT Bounty Shootout, Hellmuth wore no UB.com logos. It was rather the colors of the Hotel and Casino Aria as well as those of the WSOP Academy.
Other rumors want that Hellmuth would soon launch its own poker room. Several people wonder who will want Hellmuth as headlining? PokerStars? Full Tilt Poker? None of these rooms has yet been on offer to that this summer has been pay 2 M$ USD to appear with some logos of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
On the PokerNews site, you can read that Hellmuth was also sighted no Ub.com logos during a recent taping of the show "Poker After Dark" aired on NBC.
I have tried to learn a little more inquiring on the Facebook and Twitter of Hellmuth itself, but I found nothing on this subject, who usually has the fairly easy floor.
Remains to be seen if these rumors are based.
