This year’s Tea Pot game has got to go down as one of the best, and not just because of a certain jammy geordie winning it. Chris (cryptic3) came up with an idea a few weeks before the game and said “what do you think ken” I said “sounds great m8 go for it”. Well you could say things sort of snowballed from there, pardon the pun lol. Yes it was Chris’s idea to bring along 50 toy snowballs to throw at each other just like in the online 888 games and great fun it turned out to be. The players, dealers and the card room manager all acting like 10 year olds in the biggest snowball fight you have ever seen. It is a memory that will stay with me for a long time lol.
Everyone before the start of the game was given a cap, t-shirt and card guard courtesy of 888. Then Sean tells us all the drinks are on 888 well free rolls don’t get any better than this TY Sean and 888. A few short hours and a quick break for Cake later (courtesy of Jeanie TY ) “how time flies when you are having fun” we were down to 3 players.
Anthony (xborox) went out 3rd, winning a ticket to the 4k Tornado VWP. That left John (Gabba) and myself heads up and what a laugh we had. I first met John 4 years ago when he called in to mine for a fry-up on his way from Scotland to the bash and we have been good friends ever since, so you might think I would be feeling bad having eventually beaten him with 8-2 off, but not really as I knew John would be made up with not only a the ticket to the $100k Sunday Challenge, but also a Crystal Skull Head full of vodka & Rolling Stones Box Set kindly donated by Rick (Paralada) TY Rick. The heads up seemed to last forever with the crowd oohing and aahing to every all-in until I finally managed to donk it with 8-2 off, sorry m8. Sean was one of the first to congratulate me saying “lol it’s not on winning your own competition m8” to which I replied at least I can”. So you see folks it looks like it might have been my fault Sean taking down the main event (anything lambone can do Sean can do better) lol.
Well I had a blast, hope you did to and if you didn’t make it this time round make sure you get there next year for more fun/ Tea/Cake/snowballs in the lambone live Tea Pot Game.
