Ultimate Poker Loses Two Sponsored Pros
The online poker site Ultimate Poker has this week lost two of its sponsored pro players. Tom Marchese and Randy Dorfman have both decided to end their relationship with the site and are no longer part of Ultimate Poker’s “Team U”.
Ultimate Poker became the first online poker room to be regulated in the United States when it received a license in the state of Nevada. Big things were expected from the site but, to date, it has not really delivered. It is understood that this is at least part of the reason why Dorfman chose to terminate the relationship.
The site has not yet made an announcement about the departures, but Dorfman has made a related post on his Facebook page. In this post he stated that he more important things to be involved with, and that he was frustrated in his role at Ultimate Poker as he felt his ideas were not being listened to. He went on to wish the site the best of luck for the future.
Marchese, who has only part of “Team U” for less than two months, has not commented so far, however Dorfman has implied that he has left for similar reasons.
This latest development will do little to change the general consensus in the poker community – that Ultimate Poker has underperformed so far. It is still very early days for the site of course and there is every chance that things will improve. At the moment, though, the site has a long way to go to match the performance of some of the more established online poker sites.
