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.

And my opinion for what i see from he, just a couple of shows on tv, but when he apear the fun and the excitement have been garanted.

And he will be on the top of money list for long time, because what he did is a very good achivement.

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

Yeah, and this is some illness. Any out of the two cancer he had would have been deadly alone.
Rest in Peace Dave.
