Just been told Caf. I got a text message from a South Ireland number asking if I was still on this number. I replied I was and said to wife " I wonder who that is" I actually said to wife maybe its that bollocks (Dave) who I took fishing years ago and went drinking with till 5/6am throwing our glasses into river at bottom of garden at end. He tried to get taxi to take him straight home to Dublin! Maybe he wants to go fishing again? It was a great day and a fond memory. Cant believe one so full of life is gone. Thoughts with you and family. Had some great times at IPO including photo bombing one of him and Serena at the IPO.

Really sorry to hear this terrible news. Spent some time with David and even shared a couple of hotel rooms with him at some poker tournaments.

My sincere condolences to all the family.

So sorry for your loss to you and your family Brian.

I got a call earlier telling me of the news which I still cant believe.
Anyone that knew Caf, knew how much of a bubbly person he was and great craic to be around. We were good buddies and he will be greatly missed.

The picture here is when we were at the European deepstack in 2015, he grew quite fond of my hat, he kept telling me I have your hat and will post it down to you, I never got my hat back but it's Caf's hat now, notice the sock hanging from the ceiling, Caf decided to cover the smoke alarm while we had a smoke, I'm smiling here to myself with a tear thinking about this.

RIP my good friend

This is just suck terrible news and I'm completely in shock. Played with Dave a lot both live and online, had a few sessions with him and he was the best company on and off the table. Got to know him quite well through our time with BRS and he just oozed talent and class.

Really sorry to hear Brian, and condolences to you and all the family. He will be missed.

Dreadful news, terribly sorry to hear it. Sincere condolences to yourself Caf, your family and all his friends. Can’t imagine what you must be going through.

I didn’t know Dave as well as many on here, but played and had the craic with him quite a bit at festivals a couple of years ago and I’ll remember him as a genuine, thoroughly nice fella who put smiles on the faces of those in his company. RIP.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. Having a few pints and the craic with David was always a highlight of the poker festivals when I used to go to them.

He will be greatly missed by a great number of people.

So shocked to hear this news this evening Dave would always greet you with a smile I remember the festival in Galway a few years ago drinking with Dave for nearly all the 2 weeks.

My heart goes out to you and your family at this time may he Rest In Peace.

Condolences. One of the most genuine down to earth people on the Irish circuit. I remember being 3 bet by Dave in early position, full ring in my first UKIPT with fondness.

He was playing 97dd. Needless to say, way ahead of my UTG open and peel a 3! range ...
