Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott

Coming from a criminal background where he was once part of a safe cracking team, Ulliott was eventually sent to prison before moving into the gambling industry.

David "The Devilfish" Ulliott is one of poker's leading personalities. Coming from a criminal background where he was once part of a safe cracking team, Ulliott was eventually sent to prison before moving into the gambling industry. Devilfish has been banned from every bookmaker in the UK due to his unprecedented sports betting successes. It was this that forced him into poker and he has never looked back since.

A fierce No Limit Hold’em Player, Ulliott is also deemed lethal at Limit Omaha, to the extent that experts have been heard saying: “If the game is Pot-Limit Omaha, you can just hand him the title at the beginning.” With more than $5,300,000 to his name from tournament winnings only, Ulliott is the highest earning British player to date. His biography “Swimming with the Devilfish” was written by Des Wilson and published in 2006, and he was featured in the poker documentary “No Limit” and the film “Poker face.”
