Devilfish : The Life & Times of a Poker Legend Paperback
by Dave Ulliott
From prison cell to Las Vegas penthouse, "Devilfish: The Life & Times of a Poker Legend" is the no-holds-barred life story of the UK's best poker player and all-time legend, Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott.
Ever wanted a seat at the table with the Devilfish? Well, now's your chance...Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott is the the most successful poker player in British history, with tournament winnings of GBP6 million.
But he started life with an unlucky hand -on a council estate in Hull, boredom staved off by a spot of safe-cracking.
He finally found his true vocation at the card table.
From prison to a penthouse in Las Vegas; from gang fights to parties at the Playboy mansion; from losing $700,000 in a day to winning a World Series of Poker bracelet; from being public enemy No 1 to the big draw on Channel Four's "Late Night Poker", Devilfish knows what it means to lose and win big. And still come out cracking jokes. "This is a full life story from the fish's own mouth: his jokes, his sauce, and detailed revelations from his criminal past.
Broad, funny, northern and poetic. A master storyteller". ("Guardian"). "Cancel your plans for the weekend and do yourself a big favour.
Read this. Devilfish is funny as f**k, ballsy, brave as a lion, mad as a bag of monkeys, and absolutely captivating as a storyteller". (Roger Cook, "Daily Star"). "Fast, funny, scary, smart, cocky and colourful". (Victoria Coren, "Observer"). "A poker classic". ("Daily Star").
