|The majority of online poker rooms boast the names of more than one professional superstar or online wonderkid – Full Tilt, PokerStars and UltimateBet take the lion’s share of the pro poker scene.|
Tournament of Champions winner Duke and 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil ‘The Poker Brat’ Hellmuth have thus far represented UltimateBet, which does also enjoy the presence of CardRunners co-founders Andrew ‘muddywater’ Wiggins and Taylor ‘Green Plastic’ Caby. Now Josephy joins that elite group; the UltimateBet Star Players team.
“A Star Player is one who has an undisputed high level of skill, lots of integrity, and is well respected in the world of online poker,” said Omaha Hi-Lo Split WSOP bracelet-winner Duke. “One look at his impressive record reveals that JohnnyBax epitomizes a Star Player and is the perfect addition to our roster of respected and talented poker players.”
Josephy has won over $1.3m in live tournaments including a 1st place finish and bracelet in WSOP 2005 and a runner-up spot at the 2006 Aruba Poker Classic.
