Let me start this blog by saying a BIG THANK YOU to Sean (forum manager), 888, and most of all the crazy gang more formally known as the MY.888POKER COMMUNITY Forum Members that attended this year’s Bash. Why do I call the forum members The crazy gang you might ask, well what other poker site do you know that can get a casino full of people to come together all desperate to win a Tea Pot LOL yes we really do play different at 888. This year’s game has got to go down as one of the best, On taking their seats at the poker tables the member found that Sean had arranged for everyone to receive a complementary 888 t-shirt, cap and pack of card, If this was not enough Sean then announced that there was to be a free bar for the first couple of hours of the comp, as you can imagine this news was received with lots of hoops and hollering from the crazy gang lol.
Sean asked me to formally start the game but not before he asked for us all to take a moment to remember Damian (daleys1970) a very popular forum member who had attended previous bashes and who had become a dear friend to a lot of us, Damian was very sadly taken from us earlier this year. A minutes silence was impeccably observed by all the members (we miss ye m8)
Well before we knew it Four or five hours had passed “how time flyers when ye having fun and the drinks are free lol” we were down to the final table of nine.

After the final table pictures were taken Sean announced that 888 would be also giving seats to some of their top completions to the winners. This was greeted with more hoops and hollering LOL the free bar really had kicked in lol
After some hard fought poker “well i mean it would be after all there was the coveted Tea Pot up for grabs “We were down the last two. Heads up was between Bill and Anthony and after a short while we had our new Tea Pot Champion Wild Willy Fenn,( IM101UKNOW)Bill’s K3 beating Anthony Q10. Anthony was gutted not to be taking the Tea Pot home but was pleased coming 2nd as this was one better than his 3rd place finish in 2014. Anthony said 3rd now 2nd the Tea Pot defo coming home with me the next time lol.
I could not think of a better winner Than Bill as he is a fantastic poker player and such a fun guy to be around and that’s what the Tea Pot game is all about Poker and Fun all rolled into one.
Bill said the Tea Pot would take pride of place in his man shed until he return’s it in 2016’ so if you want to join in the fun and a chance of winning the most esteemed trophy in poker make sure you get yourself along to the next MY.888POKER COMMUNITY bash.
