You got a confirmed link? According to Twitter he is ill but still with us, not doubting you but would like to hear it from an official source.

I didn't know he was ill. Did it say what the illness was?

Very ill with cancer, sad news, but his daughter has tweeted quite recently today that he is still alive.

I lolled and fair play to the legend:

From Rob Yong on Devilfish: "Asked Devil how bad it was and he replied 'the doctor told me not to bother ordering a desert before a meal.'"

Was reading on 2+2 that he has cancer of the colon and only days to live.
Sad news. One of the genuine characters of the game.

Read on Poker News that he is in good spirits and fighting the cancer.
Seems there was a rumour that he hade passed away hence the OP.
I'm sure everyone will be thinking of Dave and his family.
Brought loads of people to the game. S
Shows the demise of poker on here with the lack of posts. A couple of years back you would be struggling to keep up.
Anyways good luck in your fight Dave.

There's an interview and picture of Dave and his family in his local paper today.
You can see he is ill but he says he's determined to beat the cancer.
He seems in good spirits and was his wisecracking self on what is his 61st birthday.
Hope he sees quite a few more.

He was only diagnosed in February apparently, doctors didn't give him great odds ... saying it was really just a matter of time. The big C is so cruel and damn that was quick, he was 61.

Very sad news. Was the face of poker for so many. R.I.P. Dave.

61 way too young. Very sad news. Lots of pics on his twitter page of his baby daughter who must only be about 2 or 3.  He was one of the great characters in poker. R.I.P.

I know nothing about Poker but didn't Devilfish post regularly on here a long time ago? Pretty sure he did, if it was the same person.
