We missed you, Dave
Nearly all major countries have their flagship poker pros or their flamboyant characters. The USA has Hellmuth, Ivey and Matusow to name but a few. France has ElkY, Canada has Negreanu, Denmark has Gus Hansen and Finland has Patrik Antonius.
But since Devilfish faded from the limelight over the past few years, Britain has lacked a household name. Stalwarts of the British poker scene such as Surinder Sunar and Ram Vaswani have never reached international stardom, and whereas the likes of Sam Trickett and James Akenhead are shrewd, successful players in their own right, they lack the table presence of a Devilfish.
At this year's WSOP, Ulliot made headlines with a deep run in the $5k 6-max Pot-Limit Omaha event. He bust out in 13th place in unfortunate circumstances, as eventual winner Jason Mercier spiked astraight after Devilfish had hit top set on the flop.
Ulliott has since joined Twitter, and promised fans that they can expect to see more of him in upcoming months.
