UltimateBet is owned by Tokwiro Enterprises and Chief operating officer Paul Legget said of the signing: “We are ecstatic to bring Joe onto Team UB. He will not only serve as a pro player representing the brand, but more importantly will be instrumental in helping us create a poker site for and by poker players. His commitment to the brand was invaluable as he worked closely with me to help begin to bring closure on the details surrounding the cheating investigation from last year. I’ll continue to work with him to ensure that we always do everything possible to satisfy the poker community’s concerns and will continue to work together to make UB the premier poker site. I couldn’t be happier to welcome Joe to the team today.”
Joe Sebok got his nickname “The Cub” because he calls his stepfather Barry Greenstein “Bear” and since turning pro in 2005 has notched up in excess of $1,800,000 live tournament winnings including a first place finish at the 2006 Festa Al Lago V $5,000 buy-in for $267,295. He has also made two WSOP final tables and earned $108,000 at this year’s WSOP Main Event after finishing in 56th place.
Commenting on his signing with UltimateBet, Sebok said: “UB and I first started talking about a possible relationship almost 4 months ago and I made it very clear that I couldn’t commit until that point in time when the names associated with the scandal began to be release.Paul Leggett has been instrumental in this process, and I now feel comfortable and excited about joining the team, as we are heading in such a positive direction. While this process isn’t entirely complete, I consider this to be one of my new responsibilities moving forward and intend to continue working very closely with Paul to ensure it happens. I am very happy to be joining UB today and look forward to our future.”
We wish Joe all success in the future and poker fans can see him in action regularly at UltimateBet.
