In Dave Uliott’s Honor, Devilfish Cup Returns

Poker

Named after Dave “Devilfish” Uliott, Nottingham Devilfish cup is going to be held once again this year, from September 30th until October 2nd. The entry fee is $5,300 and the cup has a guarantee of $1 million.

Dave Uliott died in 2015 after losing a battle with cancer. The rake from the tournament will be shared between a trust for Uliott’s daughter Lucy and the Macmillan Nurses, the British cancer charity.

The players will have the chance to enjoy the world-famous ‘Devilfish Bar’, listening to the stories about Uliott’s exploits. Some of the big names such as Sam ‘Trickett’s Room’ Trickett, Ludo Geilich and Roberto Romanello will be there too.

Dave Uliott was a WSOP bracelet winner and he was posthumously introduced to WSOP Hall of Fame in 2017. Known for his poker skill and charisma he was well-liked not only by the audience but by his fellow players too. Ultiott fought against despicable disease like a warrior, but cancer eventually won, robbing the world of one more good man.

There is an affectionate and rather interesting documentary about Devilfish, made somewhere around his introduction into the Hall of Fame.
