partypoker releases Three-part Documentary in Honor of Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott

Tags: Dave Ulliott, Devilfish, partypoker, poker documentary.
Posted on 18 January 2019 by "T".

One of the world's biggest poker sites pays tribute to a man who's dubbed as a ‘true godfather' of poker by creating a documentary in honor of ‘Devilfish' that everyone can watch on partypoker TV (partypoker account required - CLICK HERE if you don't have one already). 

He earned $6.2 million playing live poker tournaments from 1993 to 2014, with his final appearance being in the $1,500 NLHE Monster Stack of the 2014 WSOP, finishing 265th place out of 7,862 entries.

Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott starred on Late Night Poker on Channel 4, a program that began in 1999 that tremendously helped in popularizing the game. It was actually the very first poker show to utilize the "hole-cam" technology, forever revolutionizing poker for the audience and since then has become one of the primary staples in all other poker TV shows that followed.

Ulliott was identified as the player with a slicked-back hair, tinted glasses and sharp suits. On the Late Night Poker show, he was undeniably considered to be the first poker star on TV.

In the 1997 WSOP, he outlasted a 247-player field to earn a bracelet in a $2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em event. In the 2003 (World Poker Tour) WPT, he added a title to his name after defeating Phil Ivey in a heads-up match at the WPT NLHE Championship in Tunica.

It was in 2017 when the poker community inducted both Phil Ivey and the late Devilfish into the Poker Hall of Fame. The award came two years after he lost his life to cancer. It was back in February 2015 when he was first diagnosed with colon cancer and unfortunately died because of it on April 6, 2015, at the age of 61.

In January 2019, fans of the Devilfish can watch Part 1 and Part 2 of the documentary on demand through partypoker TV (partypoker account required - CLICK HERE if you don't have one already). 

Here's a trailer on Part 1:

This player has an interesting life story.
Unfortunately he died early.
I watched him on TV many years ago and i liked how he played.
He is part of the old players who have shown the world what the hold'em poker game means.
He deserves this documentary in his honor.

A legendary player who has done a lot to promote poker in the world. Thanks to such players, poker has turned from a game for underground rooms into a sport that is loved by millions of people around the world. He certainly deserves to be shot about this documentary!

I am really looking forward to watching this and it should be fascinating. The 'Devilfish' was always fantastic to watch at the poker tables and this should give another insight into a much loved and missed character

I saw this advertised variously across media and social media and I have to say that it looks like it will be a rather good watch. I am just looking to find time when I can actually spend time watching this series and enjoy what it has to bring. It’s a nice way to commemorate the life of a poker great. Hope you all enjoy it

One thing I wish partypee would produce is a better software already. I get it, they pay tribute to someone who is considered a seasoned pro and having a legendary status but I wish they would spend the same time and money finetuning their own things as well.

its bad when you read something like this,that he died beacuse of cancer and not on normal way,especially when is person who live full life and enjoy in life,gambling,friends and everything that it come!he had money,but he knewt how to spend his life which in not case for every player!

He probably had a decent amount of stress as well, gambling does that to you - it's far from having a healthy lifestyle.
 dule-vu23/01/2019 11:27:32 GMT
yeah,its not easy,but on other side who know how he got that cancer and is it from stress,food,family thing!but as we see in this trailers,he had few hobbies,had friends to enjoy and its to bad when life must end on that way and in earlier ages!

Cancer can often be treated, but when it is not detected in time, it happens as in this case and nothing can be done.
I liked it a lot when i was watching at TV and i see how Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott play.
It was a pleasure to watch his talent and it was a time when i started to like this Holdem poker game.
