They're owned by a crooked syndicate of mysterious Canadian indians - seriously. Google "Ultimate Bet super user scandal" and get back to me.

One super user years ago... and millions and millions of hands played since then with the backing of some of the bigger pros in the game.

I'd think it's safe to play UB now-a-days.

If they were too shady, people would know and act accordingly.

No bank..

NetSpend prepaid Visa from any Advance America.



I requested a $50 check (the minimum check) just to say I did it.
And show some skeptical co-workers at my PT that it's legit and they do pay.

Got it in 10 days.

There were numerous super users actually, including Russ Hamilton, a main event winner and Layne Flack, a well-known pro with numerous bracelets. Nobody knows who even really OWNS the company. Til then, the rare times I play online will be at I prefer PStars and Full Tilt. There's better games at those sites, anyway.

...it doesn't even matter. FT and Poker Stars have way more games, money, donks. More selection. I prefer FT because the tourneys are usually much smaller then PS while still being big. In fact, IMO FT is where it's at.

its one of my few days off from work, so I decided to put $45 on a poker site and play a couple of tournaments.

1st one was a $11 buy-in with $155 people. ended up getting 3rd, which was a nice turnaround, but i was definitely in position to win it and blew it. its annoying to do really well and still get pissed off, but I wanted 1st.




after that I decided to join a $33 buy-in- $7000 guaranteed tournament. was kind of annoying since I hate rebuy tournaments, but I didn't rebuy and ended up getting 4th place and winning $700. But once again I am pissed off, because I was in 1st place with 5 people left and hit some bad luck, and blew a few hands and ended up getting 4th.




should be happy, and I am. but i always hate getting this close and not getting 1st
