United Kingdom’s player Rick Trigg won first place in Devilfish Cup. He won $250,000 for his victory, which is the best result of his career. He has lifetime winning over $1 million in live tournaments and also over $8.6 million in online tournaments. Before the start of the heads-up, Rick Trigg and Paul Siddle made a deal in which players guaranteed themselves $200,000 each, fighting for an extra $50,000 and a title.
Thanks to the WPT and Dusk Till Dawn, the Devilfish Cup event raised $62,000 for charity, and each buy-in spent $300 on charity. David “Devilfish” Ulliott was a legendary player, and it was no surprise that some of the biggest names in world poker turned out to honor the late Poker Hall of Famer. Bruno Fitoussi, Adam Owen, WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson, former Hendon Mobster Joe Beevers, Anton Wigg, and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier were among the names who entered but failed to cash.
