Phil Hellmuth Leaving Ub?

Ittttttttttt's Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime! (for Phil Hellmuth and Ub to part ways?)

More and more chatter is circulating the so-called “Internet” about whether or not Phil Hellmuth is leaving Ub.

Hellmuth has been spotted recently at a number of events (and in his own Tweets) not wearing his Ub cap or logo.

This has led to speculation that Hellmuth is leaving the only online poker site he’s ever been with. BJ Nemeth wrote that Hellmuth and WSOP.com would be a natural fit. And 2+2 is a good 13 pages deep on thoughts about the lack of logo love.

When asked for comment, Hellmuth says:

“I can’t discuss my agreement with Ub due to confidentiality reasons, so I’m leaving it up to my agent.”

Hellmuth is represented by Brian Balsbaugh at Poker Royalty.

Whether or not Hellmuth and Ub part ways remains to be seen, but usually where there’s smoke, there’s fireTM, so we’ll see how this plays out.

    Phil was a guest on The Hardcore Poker Show on Monday. While he didn’t say what was actually going on, he did acknowledge out premise that it was simply contract negotiations right now….

    The UB site still shows Phil as a member of Team UB. Were they to part ways I’d expect that stuff to disappear pronto.
