Ultimate Poker Roster Of Pros Grows To 9

Ultimate Poker Roster Of Pros Grows To 9The USA’s first legal online poker site, Ultimate Poker, has continued to gain momentum since launching a little over a month ago on April 30th, 2013, and has recently announced the addition of four more pros to their roster of sponsored players.
Jason Somerville, Will Reynolds, Lauren Kling and Jonathon Little now join players such as Antonio Esfandiari and Terrence Chan in representing the Nevada based site, and will be sporting Ultimate Poker patches during the World Series Of Poker currently underway in Las Vegas.
Jason Somerville (photo) already has a WSOP bracelet to his credit after taking down the 2011 WSOP $1k No Limit Hold’em event for $525,274, and presently boasts $2,527,084 in life time earnings. Commenting on his latest deal the 26 year-old, who is also one of the few openly gay poker players in the professional circuit, tweeted:
“part of a whole new family 🙂 @danawhite @UltimatePoker pic.twitter.com/5sBYuZrEj0..excited to finally play some real money poker on @UltimatePoker for the first time. playing some $1/$2 right now, come join me!”
Jonathon Little’s poker credentials are equally as impressive with the two-time WPT Champion and poker author having racked up $4,931,381 in winnings from live tournaments since 2006. William Reynolds, too, is a talented young pro with $1,689,953 in live winnings, but he will now also be able to showcase his online talents at Ultimate Poker, having previously won $1,689,953 playing online under the screen name Reynolds XO. Following his appointment, Reynolds tweeted:
“Toured @UltimatePoker’s office today..Professional environment with an expert team.. Looking forward to repping UP this WSOP”
Finally, Lauren Kling, too, is a talented online pro with her $223,382 in live earnings being outstripped by the $1,094,916 she has won online under the screen name Locoenlacabeza. The young beauty will also add a touch of glamour to Ultimate Poker’s list of sponsored pros.
