    two interesting things about this:
    1. That status was updated after she started wearing the UB patch.
    2. His profile pic seems adequate for how this organization has acted in this situation, like an evil empire bent on controlling everyone and everything. Does that make PokerNews HQ the Death Star?

  2. i still own your bike

    oh, and another thing:
    “we so proud” seems to fit from someone who said they were seeking legal “council” in their press release…it’s “counsel,” Hux, “counsel.” Idiot.

    Yeah as if UB is such a good company… never mind the fact that they have been stealing from their customers for years.
    I lost all respect for Tiffany when she started to wear the UB patches… forget about PokerNews its just a distraction from her horrible choice to represent a crooked company! The real issue here is why would somebody like tiffany who could have picked any company she wanted to represent – choose a company like UltimateBet? It speaks to her character and it speaks loudly.

    The thing that you’re forgetting with her picking UB is that she trusts the people associated with that site.
    Yes, I fully understand all of the scandal and implications of her signing with UB.
    However, her boyfriend, Hollywood Dave, and one of her best friends, Annie Duke, are both associated with UB. In a high pressure situation, like what happened with her over the last 48-72 hours of her Main Event run, any individual is likely to go with what they know and with what the people that she trusts know. In this case it was UB. If anything, she was loyal to those people. Even if you think it was loyalty to a fault. Add to those people an icon like Hellmuth, despite your feelings about him, and, well….
    That is the only thing that it says about her character and if you “lost all respect” for her, I would say that you don’t know her and probably never had any for her in the first place, which is sad and unfortunate.

    the winners will get the interest accrued on that prize money equal to the place that they finish.
    so, 3rd place finisher will get the interest accrued on third place money.
    this is another reason (on top of sponsorship/exposure deals) that making the final table can be so much more lucrative.
