Spotted: Phil Hellmuth, sans UB patch – what gives?

Spotted: Phil Hellmuth, sans UB patch – what gives?

Monday, 15 November 2010

Victory Poker CEO and WSOPE final tabler Dan Fleyshman had the poker world a little abuzz on Twitter with the revelation that Phil Hellmuth has not been seen with his Ultimate Bet sponsorship patches for a while. According to the Victory boss, Hellmuth has appeared at charity events and Poker After Dark without the sponsorship logos.

This means very little, in that he could be re-negotiating his contract or simply being forgetful. It would be very surprising if Hellmuth were to leave UB now after sticking by them through the superuser scandal and their reformation. However it is worth bearing in mind that the last UB pro to be seen without the patch was Liv Boeree, who is now with PokerStars.

However, perhaps he is just lending his patches to UB’s new Team Pro Maria Ho? You can read about her signing with UB here.
