LONDON, January 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Five-Strong Team of Online Qualifiers and Dave Ulliott Head to Gran Canaria for European Masters of Poker Main Event on Thursday today announced Team Devilfish, consisting of five poker players plus UK poker legend Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott, who will participate in the European Masters of Poker taking place in Gran Canaria from Jan. 28 to 31, 2010.

    Team Devilfish are:
    Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott -- UK
    Daniel "allin-tony" Boije -- Finland
    Benedetto "DMTRX" Passantino -- UK
    Toni "halibaba" Saarinen -- Finland
    David "Vindolanda" Dyson - UK
    Eduard "edNorel" Norel -- Romania

The team will play the sold out EMOP Gran Canaria EUR1,000 buy-in main event later this week while benefiting from coaching with Ulliott who will host dinner for the players each day during the tournament while discussing all things poker.

Ulliott, who is looking forward to his sunny break from the dreary northern England weather, said, "We've assembled a crack team of players to take on the EMOP Gran Canaria and I can't wait to meet up with the boys, discuss some strategy, enjoy the food and drink, and hopefully come home with a Team Devilfish EMOP champion!"

Team Devilfish member Benedetto Passantino said, "Thanks to Devilfish Poker! There is nowhere I'd rather be than representing Team Devilfish alongside Dave Ulliott at the EMOP Gran Canaria. Devilfish was the first player to call me the Matrix and since then my poker nickname has been DaMatrix. I hope to be firing as many bullets as dodging them!"
