Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
What's the barometer of success in the poker world? For some, it's making it onto a featured table at the World Series of Poker. For online poker pro Adam "Roothlus" Levy, being berated by legendary poker pro Phil Hellmuth for five consecutive minutes while seated at that featured table was confirmation enough that he'd made it.
Today, the 26-year-old online poker sensation from Orlando, Florida has another reason to feel like he's at the top of his game. Levy joins UltimateBet's Star Players Team as its fifth and newest member.
According to Annie Duke, UltimateBet's Cardroom Consultant, an UltimateBet Star Player is one who has an undisputed high level of skill, lots of integrity, and is well respected in the world of online poker. One look at Levy's impressive history of wins and successes reveals that the category was built for him.
While Levy was a target of Hellmuth's criticism, the online poker player is anything but an amateur. Since starting his online poker career, Levy has taken home more than $1.8 million in cash. This year alone, the Texas Hold'em wonder has secured more than $300,000 thanks to impressive finishes in the world's biggest online poker tournaments.
But it's not just about successes at the virtual tables. At this year's World Series of Poker, Levy cashed six times, including a 48th place finish in the Main Event that netted him $135,100.
The online poker pro joins four of the industry's most revered online players-- Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy, James "P0KERPR033" Campbell, Tiffany Michelle and Tracy Scala--on UltimateBet's roster of high caliber players.
