In today’s Green Felt Journal, I look at a few of the personalities behind Ultimate Poker:

Online poker seems so … unearthly. Hands are dealt on a glowing screen. Cards are made out of pixels, not pasteboard. And yet it’s here, and it’s very real.

For now, there’s one company that offers online poker in Nevada: Ultimate Gaming. It’s headquartered in an industrial strip mall on Harmon Avenue, a few blocks west of the Strip. And it’s filled with an interesting mix of about 60 administrators, techies, creative types, marketers and casino veterans.

Ultimate Poker has a great story–I’m hoping to write more about them and their competitors, once other sites go live. Fascinating to see history unfold.
