devilfish poker review

Say what you like about mathematical Scandinavians, but they're not the most fun on a long-haul flight. There are some, in the newly clean and sober game, who disapprove of him. Ulliot does an excellent job of explaining how it is not about the money but the need to play. In my book, For Richer, For Poorer: A Love Affair With Poker , I tried to explain how a girl like me, with every advantage in life, a famous father, a private education, a decent job and a voice like Princess Margaret, could end up doing something as disreputable as playing poker. But Marcus Georgiou, generously credited on page one, has done a great job of letting Ulliot's tone come through: this is clearly the man's own voice, well compiled to make a fast-paced, hugely enjoyable tale. However, you will be in clover if you want to be rousingly entertained by a man who will tell you from experience that "If you live slap bang between a fish warehouse and an abattoir, you're happy when you catch a cold. He is no WG Sebald. By "motley", I mean that the scope was wide enough to include both me, a twentysomething university graduate with a column in the Daily Telegraph and a liking for recreational card games, and Dave "Devilfish" Ulliot, a Hull pawnbroker with a criminal record and a gold bracelet to demonstrate that he had been to Las Vegas and won a massive tournament in the World Series of Poker. The first is that Devilfish is the soul of poker: a link back to the days when it was all colourful characters with sharp wits and shady backgrounds. A tale of how a cocky charmer with a criminal past conquered the card game charms his friend and fellow player. One time, after going broke in a poker game against a wealthy antiques dealer, Devilfish wonders how to raise more stake money and sit back down. His turn of phrase is naturally funny and occasionally poetic an opponent is "as pale as Dracula's feet" ; apply that verbal dexterity to the life he's had and you've got one solid piece of entertainment. That awe-struck meeting in the lift turned into a long friendship between like minds. Published on Sat 28 Aug I n the winter of , on the sixth floor of a Cardiff hotel, I walked into a lift to find it already occupied by an elderly couple and a tall, sinister-looking fellow in a black leather trench coat and red sunglasses.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} This is a man with juicy stories to tell. Clanking back up the stairs of the antique dealer's home, giant clock in tow, he recalls that "it sounded like I was shagging Big Ben". I was nervous to review it, in case it was bad. And he has a gun. I am not one of them, for two reasons. The lift was going down to the lobby, where a pair of nervous young researchers were waiting to collect a motley crew of gamblers for a recording of the cult new TV series Late Night Poker. Retired burglar he may be, but Dave Ulliot is a loyal friend and a kind man, whose tactile and deeply sentimental love for his ex-wife and children expressed throughout the book without a trace of manly embarrassment is born from instinct, not from anything he learned in his own upbringing. But I needn't have worried. In Dave's case, it whiled away the hours in Armley nick, where "everyone always ended up arguing because no bastard could spell". In his new book, Devilfish: The Life and Times of a Poker Legend , Dave Ulliot explains how a man like him, from a council house "so small we had to paint furniture on the walls", with an innate gambling addiction and criminal friends, who had served two prison terms for burglary and safe-cracking, who was in so many street fights he started carrying a gun on the streets of Bradford, could end up doing something as respectable as playing poker. Reading this book is like sitting with Devilfish in a pub. The elderly couple must have thought we were both insane. If you're looking for a hyper-conscious examination of the nature of memory, this isn't the book for you. Dave Ulliot is a friend of mine. In my case, it was a calm and bonding pastime for a middle-class London family. The book is, like the man, fast, funny, scary, smart, cocky, colourful, and I adore them both. Inspiration strikes: he breaks into a local auction house and steals a grandfather clock. He and I are both, for example, suckers for a game of Scrabble. The other is that he has a massive heart. But it doesn't matter where you come from; like a halogen lamp on a mosquito farm, poker will attract anyone who wants a buzz. Now that poker is a respectable international sport, played on TV by clean-cut students with maths degrees, Devilfish with his dodgy past, off-colour jokes and old-fashioned, obvious appreciation of women can cut a controversial figure. Now wealthy, successful and famous, "The Fish" jets between glamorous gambling hotspots, but he knows where home is; this book may be unique in the history of literature for including the line: "Don't get me wrong β€” I love Hull. Victoria Coren. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Without a word, the shady gentleman slipped a heavy gold bracelet off his wrist and jingled it into my hand. I am usually suspicious of ghost writers.
