RIP to one of my favorite TV poker player, always entertained us and indeed always had good humor which made his character... as for poker wise he was no doubt one of the best old school poker player, an all rounder poker legend too.

Such a shame to hear of this news.Dave Ulliott may have been thought of as an old school player but he still reached the final table of an UKIPT a couple of years ago and he is ranked second in the England all time money list and won over $6million in tournaments and when he started there wasn't the big money available like there is now. One of the last of the characters who has seen and done it all in the poker world.RIP.

rip devilfish i used to enjoy watching him in youtube poker videos funny guy . i am sure he will be missed i gotta say that i didnt like the tweet by doyle .. he was expecting him to pass ?? i know he was sick but you should never say something like that and also talking about him being poker hall of fame .. just few hours after he died other than that .. it is good to see some poker pros giving their respect

Posted by doubletop777: What a sad story to wake up to this morning. I was absolutely gutted when i read this story and i didnt know he had been ill and must offer my condolences to his family and friends
Yeah, and this is some illness. Any out of the two cancer he had would have been deadly alone. Rest in Peace Dave.
