Dave hasn’t always been a poker player, Devilfish started life playing 3 card brag at the beginning of a colourful life which has included safe cracking, armed robberies, trips to Vegas, trips to prison and winning a World Series of Poker bracelet.

As a child Ulliott used to play poker with his parents and at the age of 16 started playing 3 card brag at the Fifty-One Club, where he would begin his famous career.
