JohnnyBax leaving Team UB?

by , Nov 29, 2008 | 10:44 am

Back in May, Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy joined Team UB to much fanfare. A few minutes ago, he posted on 2+2 this message:

Just wanted you guys to know that you will no longer see me as a redlined pro in their lobbies, nor will you see me wearing their patches at live events any more.

That is all for now,


More updates when available, in the meantime Bax still appears as a pro bounty on their site.

Update: Bax’s staking partner Eric “Sheets” Haber added the following in the 2+2 thread:

The reason why Bax is no longer a UB pro is simply because UB renegged on its deal with him.

I was there for the phone conversation and can attest that this is the case.

They called him and openly renegged on their agreement without explanation and should be ashamed for doing so imo.

Ultimate Bet reneging on a promise? Say it isn’t so!

    Didn’t these guys join UB AFTER the scandal?

    that’s what you get when you trade integrity for a paycheck.
