UB announced officially the signing of poker pro Prahlad Friedman this week in a detailed blog entry that included an exclusive interview with Friedman.

Although UB has many great poker players currently representing the UB logo in tournament play, Friedman is the most prominent star. His picture is front and center on the UB website, replacing that of Phil Helmuth, who recently cut ties with UB along with Annie Duke.

There was certainly controversy as the rumors spread that Friedman was in talks with UB. The flurry of Tweets from known UB detractor Daniel Negreanu let out the secret of Friedman’s signing long before UB had made it official.

Friedman is excited about the opportunity however and UB will be sure to pour funds into maintaining their bright new star. Friedman holds a WPT Legends of Poker title, a WSOP bracelet and has won millions in online tournament play. He’s also an edgy rapper, a vegan and one of the most highly respected online poker pros.

There is now a very creditable list of talent at UB Poker.  They currently have some hot online players like Gary “DEBO34” Debernardi, Adam “roothlus” Levy, and Mark “Poker Ho” Kroon. There are also several notable tournament winners now on the books such as: Brandon Cantu, 2-time WSOP bracelet winner, Eric Baldwin – 2009 Card Player Magazine Player of the Year, and PokerRoad creator Joe Sebok.

Friedman, along with fresh new talent, will bring much to UB poker’s quest to rank #1 in online poker sites. Their forward thinking of signing a pro like Prahald Friedman takes the sting out of the exit of Helmuth.
