Ultimate Poker is set to be one of the first legal poker sites in the newly regulated market of Nevada and the site hoping to steal a march on its potential rivals by signing up Antonio Esfandiari.

The Magician, who pocketed $18m after winning the Big One For One Drop tournament at last year's World Series of Poker, will act as a Brand Ambassador for Ultimate Poker which is the online product of the bricks and mortar Station Casinos.

"We're thrilled to have Antonio Esfandiari represent our company," remarked Ultimate Poker Chairman Tom Breitling. "Antonio is the ultimate champion and modern poker player. He brings the gaming lifestyle to the online arena with his work-hard, play-hard attitude."

Ultimate Poker hope to have their new real-money online offering up and running later this year.
