Hellmuth is the headline spokesperson for the controversial poker room UB.com. Controversy surrounded his sponsorship deal on December 20, 2008 as Helluth played $200-$400 Heads Up Limit Hold'em. During the hand Hellmuth was incorrectly awarded a $5,599 pot due to a software error. Ultimate Bet later admitted the software glitch and refunded the money, while Hellmuth made controversial comments to the effect that these errors happen all the time, whichUB.com refuted.
Hellmuth appeared on Poker After Dark on NBC and predictably had a blow up early on.
