Yardley • Level 2: 75-150, 0 ante

Hyper-aggressive young Scottish tyro Ludovic Geilich is sat to the right of poker veteran and motor mouth Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott. They clearly know each other from the circuit and Ulliott is glad to have found a receptive audience for his tales. One involved Ulliott being accosted in Dusk ‘Till Dawn card room by a Geordie (a resident of Newcastle) which ended with Ulliot offering to put up £1,000 to his £100 on a wager. Ulliott then put on an approximation of a Geordie accent saying the reply he got was, “But I’ve only got a fiver.”

Geilich then initiated a discussion on live versus online cash games and the different skills required. Ulliott is never stuck for an anecdote and recalled playing high stakes cash at Bobby’s room with Daniel “Jungleman” Cartes. Details were scarce but he seemed less than impressed.

It’s early days in this tournament but it promises to be a fascinating table, particularly as PokerStars Mind Sports Ambassador Jennifer Shahade is next to Geilich. That’s quite a trio of contrasting styles.
