  1. In April 2013, Ultimate Pokerdealt the first hand of regulated online poker in the US to much fanfare. Only a year-and-a-half later, the Station Casinos-owned venture announced that it was closing up shop in Nevada and New Jersey, citing a difficult regulatory environment and disappointing revenues. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by William Hill Poker, one of the largest skins on the iPoker Network. The poker room offers a generous welcome package including a 200% deposit bonus up to $2,000 and a superb VIP program. Visit William Hill today! --- Now, with the brand dissolved, online poker industry veteran and former head of Ultimate Poker customer service Terrence Chan (pictured) has posted a lengthy "postmortem" video on some of the issues that contributed to the site's ultimate demise. Watch it. Chan was tapped in the early days of online poker to create the support department for a growing PokerStars. The 33-year-old Canadian left the company in 2004 to pursue professional poker and has since dabbled in iGaming consulting and even mixed martial arts. With his background in online poker and MMA, Chan seemed to be the perfect fit for Ultimate Poker and agreed to take on the role of Director of Player Operations, working at the company for 16 months. In a video message recorded from Hong Kong, Chan spoke on some of the failings of the company, one of which included the software itself. "One of the things that upset me was [how management got] excited toward new and exciting features as opposed to holding onto the people we did have," he said. Instead, bug-riddled software updates were regularly released and nearly always required an emergency patch. Chan also took issue with the sheer number of people that the company chose to hire and the exorbitant salaries which they were paid. "I feel like we spent too much money… For a startup, I was probably paid too much and I was nowhere near the salaries of the people who were above me," he said. "I really feel that for startups, people with high executive positions should be paid by performance," he added. On the other hand, he said, people who added tremendous value to the company were not being compensated enough. Chan revealed that he was given little say in the salaries of his own underlings and was simply told by upper management what they would be making. The culture of Ultimate Poker's parent company, Station Casinos, also played a role in stifling progress at the startup. While the firm has been very successful capturing the local land-based gaming market in Nevada, the online poker industry was foreign to much of the top brass there. "There's a story about one of these executives sitting through a meeting where they unveiled to him the redesign of the casino website in New Jersey," he said. "At the end of [the lengthy technical presentation], he comments, 'I think the logo needs more purple.'" The office soon became a place where exchange of ideas among lower-level employees was discouraged. Ultimate Gaming staff would instead "choose their battles" due to fear of being reprimanded by superiors. "At the end, there was very little dissent," said Chan. "They didn't see it getting anywhere or they would get yelled at… People got yelled at a lot." With a rigid top-down structure in place, employees soon lost their motivation to continue to improve the product. "Probably for the last six to eight months, very little was done," he said. Yet even facing roadblocks from regulatory agencies and the problems with building a player base, Chan believes that Ultimate Poker could have become a great company. The main component lacking, though, was strong leadership. "When it comes down to it, that's probably the single greatest reason why Ultimate Gaming wasn't able to be successful," he said. "I think there were a lot of really talented, smart, and hard-working people in the company, but there was never really the leadership available to get everyone aligned to really knock this thing out. Whether that could've happened, we'll never know," he concluded. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.

  4. PocketFives had the opportunity to chat with one of our newest members, Butters. He lives in Nevada and has been successfully grinding on both WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, two of the regulated sites in the state. Butters' body of work speaks for itself. Earning over $44,000 from both sites in games with payouts of $1,000 or more for first place is not the only place you will find him grinding. Most nights, Butters is playing in an average of eight or nine tournaments. He even plays in the guaranteed PLO Hi/Lo tournaments that run every other day on WSOP.com. Visit PocketFives' Nevada poker community for the latest news and discussion from Nevada players. PocketFives: Do you have any preference between WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker? Butters: Ultimate Poker has the best support and cashier, while WSOP.com has the best action. PocketFives: Where and what type of games do you frequent online? Butters: WSOP.com - PLO cash and MTTs. Ultimate Poker – heads-up sit and gos, PLO cash, and MTTs. PocketFives: Talk about your cash game play. Butters: I play mostly six-max and heads-up PLO. I also play heads-up LHE and NLHE. I am bored by NLHE for the most part and find PLO to be less reggy. PocketFives: What do you like best about playing online poker? Butters: Heads-up action. PocketFives: Do you have any plans to play at the Rio at the WSOP? Butters: I've played a little so far with no luck. In the Millionaire Maker, I went card dead on the first bullet and lost T-T to a set when I was short on a nine-high board. On the second bullet, I had 6-6 on a flop of 2-6-9 with two clubs. I bet, he raised, I re-raised, and he flatted. The turn was a five and I bet three-fifths of the pot. He went all-in for 600 more and had 8-7 offsuit for the nuts. So far, I have had no luck, but I will be playing a few more events I'm sure. I will definitely be playing the $1,500 PLO and the Main Event. I am going to be playing some $5-$5 PLO at Rio this month as well. PocketFives: How did you choose your player name? Butters: I couldn't think of a screen name and was watching "South Park."

  7. We are seeing a lot of new names on both regulated Nevada poker sites for the first time and wonder if this is the result of the Full Tilt Poker remission process. We will try to see if any of these players are willing to share their stories with us. WSOP.com ran three of its $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to any 2014 World Series of Poker $1,500 event. All of their events exceeded the guarantees. There were 262 runners vying for 33 prizes totaling $15,975. The players with the highest valued prizes won were PokerStars and VegasJF, each winning a $1,500 seat to an upcoming 2014 WSOP event. It was PokerStars' first win of the year and VegasJF's second. Neither of these players was seen at a final table at all last year. The player with the highest cash win was SuGaRaY71 with a payout of $1,268, taking down Thursday night's event. This is SuGaRay71's fifth time cashing in these major events this year. He is starting to show consistency in making the final tables, having first been seen on December. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 120 runners generating a prize pool of $12,512 and paying a total of 19 spots. The highest cash this week went to POSTA for $1,474. The last time we saw POSTA win an event was in the UPC2 series last year. At that time, POSTA took down Event #13 for $23,878. The new guy on the block on Ultimate Poker to keep an eye on is The Agnostic, who is showing up at the final tables of the Big 25 Series as well as the $2,500 nightly events. The following are the tournament results for this week from Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com, the two legal and regulated online poker sites in Nevada.

  14. This week, PocketFives caught up with The Agnostic(pictured), who had a terrific week on Ultimate Poker, taking down both the Sunday $10,000 and Event 5 of the Big 25 series. All told, he has nine cashes in the last eight days for a total payday of $7,600. Playing mostly Pot Limit Omaha cash games until a month ago, he decided to try out the tournament side of poker. The Agnostic has resided in Nevada since 1999, living in a small town outside of Carson City. He recently joined our Nevada poker community. PocketFives: Where do you like to play poker online? The Agnostic: I only play online at Ultimate Poker. I tried WSOP.com for about three minutes on the play money side and hated the software. I feel more comfortable with Ultimate Poker. I feel a loyalty to that site since it was the first in the marketplace and have found that playing at different sites is not good for my game. I feel that focusing on one site and getting to know the players and their tendencies is paramount to having success in the online game today. PocketFoves: How did you come up with your screen name? The Agnostic: I play as The Agnostic on Ultimate Poker. I chose that name because I am an Agnostic and it seems simple and controversial as well as a name people will remember when they play against me. PocketFives: When did you first start playing online poker? The Agnostic: I was introduced to online poker in 2003. At the time, I was a losing horse racing player and made all of my wagers and did all of my handicapping online. A friend told me that with all the time and effort I was putting into horse racing, I should learn the game of poker. I started like most people, playing freerolls at various sites, and couldn't get enough. It was as if a whole new world was opened up to me and I soaked it all in. Things really did not start to click for me until 2006. I started playing some bigger buy-in tournaments on PokerStars and was holding my own. In 2009, I had my best year as a full-time player, taking down several Sunday Mixed Game tournaments on PokerStars and also winning the Nightly $100K for $19,500. When Ultimate Poker started up last year, I was skeptical at best. I had not played online poker since Black Friday. I knew the player pools would be small and questioned whether it would really be worth full-time grinding online poker again. I did okay, taking down the nightly $50 buy-in $1K Guarantee in May. I was in Las Vegas at the time and decided that the time involved would not be worth the reward since the site only offered Hold'em and I do better at Mixed Games. PocketFives: We understand you started playing full-time recently? I started playing full-time again four weeks ago and have found the PLO/8 games to be interesting and full of action. As far as my recent tournament success, it has been a combination of everything clicking and making the correct moves at critical times. My approach to the game is simple: I choose my tournaments carefully and put thought into if the time involved is worth the prize money at the end. I find poker extremely draining mentally and, as I get older, it gets harder to stay focused for long sessions. PocketFives: What are your favorite games to play right now? The Agnostic: My favorite game to play is Stud/8 or HORSE. Stud/8 is a great game that requires, in my opinion, more skill than any other variant of poker. I am planning on playing a few live events in Reno this month and will be down in Las Vegas for a couple of weeks during the World Series of Poker. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  15. According to iGaming Businessand other reports, the regulated online poker sites in Nevada have amassed $8.5 million in revenue since their inception. Ultimate Poker, the first regulated online poker site in Nevada, launched on the last day of April 2013, nearly one year ago. Last September, WSOP.comjoined in the party, and in February, Real Gaming, which is affiliated with South Point, came online in a soft launch. According to iGaming Business, "Despite the introduction of a new online poker operator in February, the three websites were only able to generate $824,000 between them during the month." PokerScout.com, which tracks cash game traffic on the world's major sites, including Nevada, shows WSOP.com in the lead in the desert state with a seven-day running average of 110 real money ring game players and a 24-hour peak of 199. Ultimate Poker has a seven-day average of 70 cash game players and a 24-hour peak of 160. The three sites tallied $824,000 in online gambling revenue in February, according to iGaming Business, much higher than Delaware's three online gambling sites, which drew a scant $73,000. The same news source noted that New Jersey, which unlike Nevada allows many forms of online gambling other than poker, saw its sites rake in $10.3 million in revenue in February. PocketFives began tracking scheduled, non-satellite tournaments on WSOP.com in Nevada with at least 20 players, at least a $0.01 buy-in, and at least $100 in the prize pool for our famed Worldwide Rankings. Just add your WSOP.com user name to your profile by clicking here in order to be tracked. Online poker could get a boost with the arrival of the World Series of Poker, which begins on May 27 and runs until mid-July from the Rio in Las Vegas. WSOP.com players only need to be located in Nevada in order to play; they don't have to be residents of the state. You can create a WSOP.com account here through PocketFives, deposit, and then play as soon as you arrive in Nevada.

  18. In the Sunday $10K Guaranteed on Ultimate Poker in recent weeks, PocketFives' own Aaron lvkid7Bass banked $2,900 for finishing first out of 84 players. Bass is a regular contributor to PocketFives' Nevada poker community and so we wanted to get the inside scoop on the first regulated online poker market in the US and one of its frequent players. PocketFives: How are you feeling about your $2,900 cash in the Ultimate Poker $10K? Aaron Bass: I'm ecstatic. It's a tournament and I don't get to play a lot of those, so it's good to take down a big one when you have a chance. I don't have a bigger bankroll to play the $100 buy-ins regularly either. Over the summer, I won an Ultimate Poker Summer Series event and along with it came a watch, which has gotten delayed and so they sent me a $100 ticket instead. That's what I used to play the $10K. PocketFives: How have the tournament fields been in Nevada? Aaron Bass: The first few weeks were the peak in terms of traffic. The Sunday tournaments were getting 150 or more players and, since then, it has dropped off. In the nightly tournaments, the attendance is holding steady. The numbers have been steady for a few months now. Until Nevada can get compacts with more states besides Delaware, I don't see the fields going up that much. PocketFives: What trends have you noticed so far between WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, two of the three regulated sites in Nevada? Aaron Bass: I have seen more tournament play going to WSOP.com. I think Ultimate has the lockdown on Omaha. Ultimate is better for sit and gos, whereas WSOP.com is better for tournaments. PocketFives: Real Gaming just soft launchedin Nevada. What do you hope to see from subsequent sites that join the market? Aaron Bass: I hope when they open, they have promotions geared toward players who haven't played much. If they can bring in players who don't know online poker is back in Nevada, that will help. I don't see Nevada alone having a lot of growth unless we get compacts with more states. PocketFives: Do Nevada residents know that regulated online poker exists? Aaron Bass: I have 10 friends who are recreational players who play live. Out of those 10, four or five have played online and bought in for a couple hundred dollars.
  19. PocketFiver Jesse No_XcapeElliot (pictured) accomplished quite a feat recently. He made the final table of the Ultimate Poker $20,000 Guarantee Sunday Majorthree weekends in a row in New Jersey. He finished in third, eighth and first for a combined $7,877 in winnings. PocketFives caught up with Elliot to talk about his accomplishment. Check out our New Jersey poker community for more details. PocketFives: Congrats on winning the Ultimate Poker $20,000 Guarantee Sunday Major. How are you feeling about your win and about making the final table three straight Sundays? Jesse Elliot: Thanks! It was nice to finally book a win after reaching the final table two other times and coming up short. I guess the third time is a charm after all. I feel lucky and blessed at the same time. It's a very daunting task to live up to my own expectations, let alone trying to keep up with all of the other great PocketFivers. PocketFives: Making a Sunday Major final table is not easy, but you did it three straight Sundays on Ultimate Poker. Do you stick to the same strategy each time you play? Jesse Elliot: My goal is always the same: make the final table. My strategy is typically player and structure dependent. The fun part is the player aspect; it's like trying to solve a puzzle that's always changing. PocketFives: How tough were the fields? Was any particular Sunday tougher than the others? Jesse Elliot: The fields on Ultimate Poker can be challenging because there are no notes or hand histories. You never get to see a losing showdown, which makes future decisions difficult. The fields are always filled with regs and PocketFivers. The real challenge in any tournament or aspect of life is understanding your own weaknesses and strengths. The rest will fall into place in time. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook. You can also subscribe to our RSS feed.

  22. On Friday, following word that its land-based partner casino, Trump Taj Mahal, is facing bankruptcy, Ultimate Gaming announced that it plans to withdraw from the regulated New Jersey marketplace.

Betsson Poker is available on Mobile and offers regular promotions to live events around the world along with great bonuses and competitions. Play nowfor a chance to win the a Dream Holiday with the Grand Poker Adventures throughout 2014! --- No hard end date for Ultimate's operations in New Jersey was given; however, the company plans to continue its Nevada online poker room, which was the first regulated site in the US and came online in mid-2013. Tom Breitling, Chairman of Ultimate Gaming, commented in a press release, "We are grateful to the State of New Jersey and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for allowing us to be one of the first companies to bring online gaming to the citizens of New Jersey and appreciate their leadership as one of the first states to allow online gaming. We are working closely with the Division of Gaming Enforcement to ensure a smooth transition for our online gaming customers as we wind down our New Jersey operations." A notice posted on Ultimate Poker's website stated that the room will be leaving the Garden State "in the near future" and is longer be taking new customers. It added, "Please go to your account and withdraw any balances you may have by following the normal withdrawal procedures." In PocketFives' New Jersey poker community, players were discussing the loss of Ultimate, with one person lamenting, "Sigh was my favorite site in the first few months of NJ poker. Massive overlays. GG. Sigh." Longtime PocketFiver Jack Jaybone2315 King revealed to our New Jersey community that he works for Ultimate Gaming in New Jersey and described the recent HR moves: "Most people were laid off today, but I'll be around for the next few weeks to help with the shutdown. Sigh." The loss of Ultimate comes alongside a tidal wave of less-than-stellar news for the New Jersey gaming market. What started as a group of 12 casinos has been slashed to eight this year, while Trump Taj Mahal's closing will leave the seaside city with seven when it shuts down, reportedly in mid-November. Betfair, which lost Trump Plaza, its land-based partner, may soon leave the market as well, but continues to operate. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  25. With just over two months before the start of the 2014 WSOP, the battle for satellite seats is heating up, with many players trying to win multiple seats. These seats have no cash value and are not transferable, but offer entry to some of the most exciting events of this year's World Series of Poker. In Nevada this week, WSOP.com ran three of its four $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to the 2014 WSOP. All of the events exceeded the guarantees. There were 227 runners with a total prize pool of 17,050 and 31 spots being paid. The player with the highest cash win was AK1688 with a payout of $1,537 for taking down Thursday night's event. Two players, MrBeaumont and jdcandidate, each won $1,500 seats to an upcoming WSOP event. Not being satisfied with one seat, MrBeaumont won another $1,500 WSOP seat by taking down the $5.50 R&A Satellite on Wednesday as well. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 115 runners generating a prize pool of $13,286 and paying a total of 18 spots. The highest cash this week went to AmazingAK47 for taking down Thursday night's event for $1,494.67. This was the first time that AmazingAK47 has been seen at a final table in the $2,500 events. Not a bad way to make a debut. Players on Ultimate Poker that are hot or heating up are luckisreal, Sundae420, and allprowi (Iamtheflower on PocketFives). .
