David Colclough

David Colclough is a Welsh professional poker player, now living in England.

Born 4 March 1964 in Carmarthen, Wales, he is a former club owner.

David Colclough first learned how to play cards with his family at their kitchen table games on weekends and played a lot of poker in high school. After attended college - where he studied computers - he had a successful career in the IT industry that spanned many years.

He played poker for years while still keeping his day job. After coming in 2nd at the WSOP Pot-Limit Hold'em tournament for $89,000, he quit his job in 2000 to focus on poker full-time. Later that year, he won the 1,500 No Limit Hold'em European Poker Classic in London, for 80,302 ($116,667).

In 2004, he won the European Poker Championship main event where he made 100,000 ($182,628). Then, weeks later, he made the final table and finished 6th at the WPT Grand Prix de Paris event during season 3, where he won 84,890 ($103,507).

Between 2000 and 2008, he finished in the top ten in the European Rankings six times and was voted European Poker Player of the Year in 2003. He has become widely known because of his many appearances on Late Night Poker in the U.K., including the final of season 5. He is not as widely known in the U.S. because he plays mainly in European tournaments.

Colclough was inducted into the European Poker Players Hall of Fame during 2005 at the age of 41 - the youngest inductee at that time. As of 2009, he has 17 WSOP cashes and total live tournament winnings over $2,550,000. During his down time, he writes articles for online poker sites.
