David Williams Quotes:

“How does it feel to be the youngest player on the WSOP “Top Ten” money list? Damn! It feels good!”

“Even though I don’t hide it, and a lot of people already know, I am a big nerd. I really like math and science, and play a lot of games. I guess you could say I have this “cool” guy image, but I deep inside, I’m a geek.”
