Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Swimming with the Devilfish


It is a dangerous thing to go Swimming with the Devilfish, the namesake of Des Wilson's book on David Ulliott, but that is exactly what Matt Marafioti tried to do in a recent hand. One a flop of {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts}, Matt Marafioti bet 3,500, Thorsten Schafer folded from middle position, and Ulliott called from the button.

Marafioti then bet 6,000 on the {6-Clubs} turn, and again the Devilfish just called. When the {K-Hearts} appeared on the river, Marafioti slowed down with a check, Ulliott bet 22,000, and Marafioti instantly folded.

The Devilfish has been on quite the heater as of late, chipping up to over 350K.
