Absolutely terrible news.

Would definitely be in my top few people to have in any poker room.

Just full of the greatest infectious energy.

Wish I had got to know Frankie better but how sad I feel by his passing shows what a great guy he was.

RIP buddy. You will be missed greatly.

All of this

Word just circulating out here in Vegas....all the boys in shock

Sympathy and condolences to his family from too many people to mention.

Let's remember him for the way he was , a great , kind and fun guy

Rest in Peace Sir x

RIP Frankie.

Barely knew him personally, only shared a table with him once & made playing live a delight despite the poker battering he gave me.

Condolences to his family & friends.

I just want to repeat what everyone is saying; that Frankie was one of the nicest guys in the world.

I was having some fun banter with Frankie over twitter for a while before I finally met him at DTD.

I've just been looking over some of the old tweets. He used to send me funny messages in really simple Thai language when I was in Bangkok, mostly about food or girls. When he saw I was in Penang, Malaysia he gave me a list of foods to try there. He messaged me on my birthday and at xmas. Wished me luck when I was playing in tourneys.

When I met him at DTD he was sitting at a cash game table with a big stack of chips and a smiling from ear to ear. The first thing he said to me after shaking my hand was "let me buy you a drink". I don't think I ever saw him without a smile on his face.

I remember last year when Kanu resigned from PokerStars he tweeted at him offering him a job in his chippy hahaha

What a legend. Friendly to everyone and a terrific sense of humour. Poker, and in fact the world, needs more Chinese Frankie's.

Rest in peace, Frankie.

One of the faces I always looked forward to seeing on a trip to DTD. A constantly excited, talkative and kind presence in an environment where this isn't often the case.

You will be sorely missed.

So gutted to hear this news. He would always go out of his way to say hello and I adored his energy.

You'll be so missed mate. X

I am devastated.

A lot of nice things you could say about CF but I'm just going to go with hilarious, never took himself to serious and was just a laugh to be around.

He's the third fish and chips & poker player combo to die in the last 18 months,  frankie would 100% have a funny comment to make about that :-D

Hope there's a poker game wherever you are bud.

I posted this on Facebook, but I thought Id post here too. Im sure Frankie would want everyone to remember the good times and be happy.

Im sure everyones got a funny Frankie story, but here's one of my favourites that summed him up.

I decided to drive back from Birmingham a night early after working an event, and Frankie asked if he could jump in with me. It was fairly late, and I dont think Frankie had slept the night previous so he could get to day 2.

While driving home, we were talking about all sorts of things (funnily enough, death of loved ones was one of them). When about 2/3rds of the way home, he realised he'd still not told me how he bust day 2 (I tried my best to avoid it). He started telling me the tale, but his voice was drifting off. I turned round and realised he'd fell asleep, so let him get some shuteye. 2 minutes later, he wakes up and screams "AND THE BASTARD HIT A JACK ON THE RIVER, FUCKING 1 OUTER JAMIE SO SICK". I was in absolute tears and had to pull up.

Such shockingly terrible news, he was such a lively chap at the table. I remember turning up to DTD not long after my 18th birthday for one of the Grand Prix events, one of my first live tourneys and was pretty nervous. I was drawn on the same table as Frankie. He naturally makes you feel more relaxed, listening to his stories and jokes. A real character who helped fuel my passion for live poker. He was Mr Dusk Til Dawn.

RIP Frankie.
