Devilfish is one of the poker players that I enjoy watching play. He was part of the Ultimate Bet team of poker pros, and has now spun off and opened his own signature poker room. Not surprisingly, the software is the same as Ultimate Bet. For a review of how the software works, including a features list, games offered, etc, read over my Ultimate Bet Review.
The kind of flair that Devilfish brings to the table can be seen in a couple of quotes from him. When the pack of pros decided to put together uBet, they each contributed some poker articles to the room's website. The Devilfish Q&A page holds this gem . . when asked how to improve his game Devilfish responded with "stop reading Sklansky!"
In an interview with The Sun he was asked "What is the most important lesson you have been taught during your career so far?" His response, "When I was a young lad my father told me to remember a few words that would ensure I never went broke. He simply said: Stick 'em up. So far, I'm glad to say it's worked a treat!"
The poker room offers the same set of backgrounds you can find at Ultimate Bet, and the cool "underground card room" backgournd as well. That theme fits well with the image of the Devilfish, and the website plays it up. They remind potential playeers that there are "no guns, knives or brass knuckles allowed in the card room!"
One thing I have to say, it's the first poker room website I've seen in, errr, maybe the first one ever, that has no "promotions" page. In digging around on the site I came across the information on the player's club, or earning Ultimate Points, but no deposit bonus informaton.
On the help page of the site there is a search option. A search for "deposit bonus" came up with no results. Odd. I can't imagine a room not offering a deposit bonus, so perhaps it is on its way. If not, that would make Devilfish Poker a truly unique internet poker room.
