David E. Colclough (born 4 March 1964 in Carmarthen, Wales) is a Welsh professional poker player, now living in Birmingham, England.


Before poker

Prior to becoming a poker professional, Colclough worked as a computer programmer. Amongst the companies he worked for were the Post Office, the National Health Service, the Inland Revenue and Fujitsu. He left computing after the 2000 World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Poker career

Colclough has had success in many poker variants. Between 2000 and 2008 he finished in the top ten overall in the European Rankings six times.[1] He became widely known to the general public via numerous appearances on the Late Night Poker television series, including the season 5 grand final.

His tournament accomplishments include a second at the 2000 World Series of Poker $2,000 pot limit hold'em event[2] and a final table appearance at the World Poker Tour's third season Grand Prix de Paris event, where he won €84,890 ($103,507).[3] In 2005, he reached the semi-finals of the World Heads-Up Poker Championship, earning €20,000. In 2003, he was voted European Poker Player of the Year.[4]

Colclough was inducted into the European Poker Players Hall of Fame during 2005, and at the age of 41 was the youngest inductee at that time.[4]

Colclough's website offers its own online poker room on the Playtech network.[5]

As of 2009 his total live tournament winnings exceed $2,550,000.[6]
