    Ultimate Poker Launches Multi-Table Tournaments, Players React

    Posted by Matt Kaufman May 7, 2013

    $10,000 Sundays is successfully completed, clearing the way for other tournaments. Hear what the players had to say.

    On Sunday, Ultimate Poker became a pioneer in American online poker yet again by successfully running the first ever U.S.-regulated online poker tournaments since the enactment of Nevada regulations.

    The site’s flagship tournament, currently dubbed $10,000 Sundays, was the first to kick off, at 6:00 pm PST. The buy-in was $91+$9, the prize pool guaranteed to be at least $10,000, and attendance reached the 200 player maximum that was set for this week alone.

    The winner of this tournament was d4heals, who received $4,173 of the $18,200 total prize pool. He wasn’t actually the first winner of an Ultimate Poker tournament, however – Pokerbandit won a $5 turbo with 55 participants that started after the 6pm major, but finished earliest.

    Aside from $10,000 Sundays, the $1,000 Nightly ran for the first time as well, attracting 75 runners for a total prize pool of $3,412.50. The first place finisher, MikeyMillz, took home the lion’s share – $1,091.99.

    Views of Three Final Tablists on Ultimate Poker

    Kat @TheGameKat Martin, Edwardo @SwagPoker Jackson and Bob @scsuhockey10 Lauria all made final tables on Ultimate Poker’s tournament launch day. Kat got 2nd in the $1,000 Nightly, Edwardo finished in 7th in a $5 event, and Lauria finished 5th in the 10,000 Sundays. Todd @toddijackson Jackson also ran deep in one of the tournaments. The players spoke to us about their thoughts on Ultimate Poker’s software and its first week in operation:

    Kat Martin: Clearly the software is rather basic (although it seems stable) and traffic is low, but I think it’s a great foundation. To me, the most important issue is that I trust it. I played online from 2002, and even before UIGEA, it was stressful to be dealing with unregulated offshore companies. Ultimate Poker has an actual street address right here in Las Vegas, and the money side of the game can be taken care of at a Station Casino cage within walking distance from my apartment. It’s a completely different and much happier situation.

    Edwardo Jackson: No one I’ve spoken to about it is a fan of the software, myself included. It’s pretty much feature-free poker; you can’t even do basic stuff like adjust the size of the tables!

    But I can appreciate their desire to be first to market in this space. Besides all of the free media they’ve earned by doing so, it’s an important proof-of-concept to the rest of the nation that regulated poker in this manner not only works but is also desired.

    Bob Lauria: Ultimate Poker is pretty good. Obviously we’re all used to the amazing software of PokerStars, which has become the industry standard, and Ultimate is no PokerStars. Things like table sizing, max buy-ins and more MTT’s are my major concerns, but it’s only been a week. It would have been tough for them to put on a software as good as the best this fast, but hey, they are a new company and have a bright future if they can stay ahead of the curve.

    Todd Jackson: All things considered, I think they’ve done a good job. The software leaves a lot to be desired but I expect a much more polished product in the coming months. I’m just so happy to be playing online again that I can look past a lot of the initial shortcomings. But I think once competitors enter the market, It’s going to really push the standard.

    Skill of the Other Players

    Kat Martin: I was quite surprised by the competition. I’d assumed anyone who had signed up in the first week would be something of a poker junkie, but some of the plays left me wondering what these guys were smoking. Based on the two tournaments I’d say no more than 15% of the fields had much tournament experience, or at least had never taken the time to get down the fundamentals of push-fold strategy, open-raise sizing, set-mining odds, and so on. Obviously I’m ecstatic about this.

    Edwardo Jackson: Not to openly disparage, but the skill level is pretty much what I’ve seen live: it’s pretty bad. Lots of inconsistent, transparent bet-sizing, 6-8x open raises, over-defending of blinds, a lot of limp-calling out of position, call stationing, and willingness to go broke with top pair. These guys do NOT fold!

    Bob Lauria: As we got deeper, the skill level seemed pretty solid. Some oddball things happened, but as with live tournaments, some bad players make it through along with good players. The whole FT play seemed pretty solid as well.

    Todd Jackson: In general, the quality of play was pretty good. Not so much early on, but as the field thinned out, I encountered a lot of tough and competent players as expected.

    A Bright Outlook for the Future

    Kat Martin: I try to avoid making predictions about online poker, but I’m really excited about it. As many have pointed out, this is very much just a beginning, and I think for sites like Ultimate Poker to thrive, they are going to need to somehow involve other states (please please please California).

    My hope is that this is a first step to bringing back players to online poker who have been sickened by the scandals and the interference from certain agencies. And even though I’ve only been a Nevada resident for 18 months, I feel quite proud that my adopted state has got its act together and is hopefully leading the way for a full return of online poker to the USA. I also expect that legal online poker in Nevada will expand the player base, attract more poker players here, and increase traffic in live games in Vegas.

    Edwardo Jackson: I think online poker in this state – as well as most, if not all of the states – is an eventuality. It’s just going to take time. Once the trust has been built in this regulated environment that online poker is as easy and fun to play as live poker (I mean, you can CASH OUT AT THE CAGE with Ultimate Poker!), it will spread. Other states that are already exploring online gaming and/or have land-based gaming themselves will see how much money they are missing out on in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware, and will want to get in the game.

    Bob Lauria: I hope the future is bright! I hope to see WSOP qualifiers and maybe other major live satellites too. I would love for online poker to grow and be the way it used to be. Maybe interstate play as well.

    Online poker is what poker needs right now. It will draw so many more amateurs back into the game and create those huge fields we all miss. Let’s hope they do this right and make it something special like the original online poker boom.

    Todd Jackson: This is such an exciting time for online poker and I’m happy to have a front row seat here in Nevada. As long as multi-state compacts happen (or federal legislation), I think the future is bright and I expect Nevada to lead the industry.
