Legendary UK poker player David “Devilfish” Ulliott took a brief break from winking at the camera to go on a Twitter tirade last night to express some outrage over the latest televised episode of EPT London Season 10. Not necessarily a regular viewer of televised poker, Devilfish got his first taste of the popular broadcasting duo of #EPTLive’s Hartigan and Stapes (James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton) and apparently, he didn’t like what he saw or heard.
Apparently Devilfish is a little sensitive about his age. But it doesn’t stop there.
It didn’t take long for one of Devilfish’s fans to steer him in the direction of Stapleton (@Stapes on Twitter) and that’s when the WSOP Bracelet winner took direct aim.
It seems though that while you may be able to make fun of Devilfish, when you make fun of a high ranking poker player with the career of Phil Hellmuth …then you’ve really gone too far.
Devilfish, perhaps a little “out of touch”, didn’t realize just how popular Hartigan and Stapes actually are in poker and some fans came to their quick defense.
In the end, Stapes replied by taking the high road:
Want to check out two of the best doing their thing? The live broadcasts of EPT Monte Carlo with Hartigan and Stapes are going on all this week!
