James Dempsey 's Profile

In May 2005 James The Doctor Dempsey smashed onto the poker scene with an impressive 14th place finish in the Blackpool Bonanza 300 shootout which Barry Neville went onto win. After a string of impressive results including back to back wins in the 2007 Brighton January Sales it was no surprise to see him take down his first bracelet at the 2010 WSOP.

Away from the felt Dempsey plays recreational golf and semi-professional bocce. He also was involved in staking poker players such as online phenoms Brent Horner and Richard Hare but has taken a back seat from the backing business to focus on his PhD.

Dempsey was also involved in some controversy after getting involved in a bitter dispute with Julian Thew over who bought the last piece of Simon Trumper in the $10k WSOP PLO event. The Doctor managed to get the percentage but in an act of revenge Julian paid Dempseys housemate Nicky Evans to shave his head while he slept. Unfortunately his hair has never fully recovered.
