UltimateBet Signs Two New Pros to the Fold

A Swedish Pro and a Utah Pro Join Team UltimateBet


As the online poker world continues to develop despite the U.S. anti-gaming legislation, the need of poker sites to keep exposure up is at an all-time high. One way to do that is to have stellar player representation and Team UltimateBet has exactly that. Although not as storied as Full Tilt's legendary fold of players, Team UltimateBet continues to sign impressive names set to leave their mark on the tournament trail.

Home of 10-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke, and Antonio Esfandiari, UltimateBet recently welcomed Swedish sensation Johan Storakers and Salt Lake City's Devin "Tranquil Chaos" Porter to the already impressive lineup of professional firepower.

Storakers has an impressive resume, making several final tables in both World Poker Tour and WSOP events. His biggest cash came at the 2005 WPT Ultimate Poker Classic, where he collected $300,000 for finishing second. Having played on the tournament trail for 10-plus years, Storakers brings a wealth of international experience to UltimateBet's lineup.

Devin Porter is no slouch either, with two big WPT finishes. Porter collected $200,000 for finishing fourth at the 2005 WPT Ultimate Poker Classic and earned $332,937 for his third-place finish at the 2006 WPT Mirage Poker Showdown tournament. Porter also had two WSOP cashes at this year's WSOP.
