Dave Colclough, born and raised in Wales, now calls Birmingham, England home. The 2003 European Player of the Year is known as "El Blondie" for his trademark close-cropped bleached blond hair style. He has been playing professional poker exclusively for just a few years, and his continued success, starting with his first major tournament victory at the UK Hold 'Em Championship in 1995, finally killed his 20 year career as an IT Consulant in 2000.
By his estimation, he has won just under 100 casino tournaments in his career. Dave's favorite game is Pot Limit Omaha, and he writes an entertaining and educational online poker column.
