Ultimate Bet has already signed some of the most successful female casino poker players in the business since they currently sponsor both Annie Duke and Tiffany Michelle. But UB isn’t stopping here since they recently signed a deal with the ever-popular Maria Ho.
Some of Ho’s notable poker tournament accomplishments include being the last women standing in the 2007 WSOP* Main Event (38th place, $237,865), cashing eight times in the WSOP* and cashing three times in the WPT. To date, Ho has earned over $360,000 in live tournament winnings despite the fact that she is mainly known for playing high stakes cash poker games.
Away from the poker tables, Ho is somewhat of an ambassador for the game since she has appeared on several mainstream television shows including CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, FOX’s American Idol and CBS’ Amazing Race. The Amazing Race was Ho’s most notable TV appearance since she and fellow UB pro Tiffany Michelle were frequently featured in poker news stories with updates on their progress.
After being signed by UB, Ho released a statement saying, “I am honored to be joining the ranks of top UB pros such as Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke. With the new direction and vision I know UB has for their future, this is an extremely exciting time to become a part of such an amazing team.”
Along with Hellmuth, Duke and Michelle, Ho will be promoting the fantastic online poker deals that Ultimate Bet offers. One of their most popular deals is the 30% rakeback offer that players can take advantage of, provided they sign up through a site that offers rakeback deals. UB also offers a $200k Guaranteed tournament, leaderboard races, bad beat jackpots, bounty tournaments, and reload bonuses. All you need to do to cash in on these bonuses is download the poker software for UB and start playing.
