London, England (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott topped a world class field of 115 players on Sunday January 18, 2009 to win the Diamond Championship €5,000 main event at the Euro Finals of Poker in the Aviation Club de Paris, France.
The http://www.devilfishpoker.com ambassador picked up €152,000 for his victory as well as a diamond bracelet before moving on to nearby Deauville for the European Poker Tour event starting Tuesday, January 20.
It is the second win for Devilfish in 2009, having also dominated a side event at the Irish Poker Championship for a €33,000 victory in the first week of January.
Devilfish entered the final table, which included French legend Paul Testud and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Theo Jorgensen, as chip leader and bulldozed his way to a heads up battle with Frenchman Roger Hairabedian.
Starting with roughly one million chips each Devilfish steamrolled over his opponent who, after 40 minutes, was down to 300,000. The final hand came when Devilfish called down his opponent's all in with 7-7. Hairabedian showed 5-5 and Ulliott took down his second ranking tournament in of the new year.
"What a great start to the year," said Ulliott after the event. "I was originally going to go to the Aussie Millions but changed my mind and I'm damned glad I did. I'm off to Deauville now to make it a hat-trick."
Paul Barnes, CEO of DevilfishPoker.com said, "It seems clear what Devilfish's New Year resolution was: win as many tournaments as possible in 2009, and boy is he on a roll. Well done Devilfish and we look forward to hearing all about it at your next weekly bounty tournament on devilfishpoker.com."
