Jolmer M. from NetherlandsHi Steve!
Here I am again, I am sending everyone the 100 dollars. They really like it, and oh yeah there was a whole piece written in the biggest newspaper of Holland about me and Ernst. Also in another news paper, so there is really much talking about us.
I sent an email to Nicole from affiliates for the poker news stuff but there are more interviews coming and I have sent her al the email addresses from the reports so she can contact them first!
It was a busy week for me but after the weekend got some rest back but man man man what a week!! What a nice hotel we slept in and because we where there a day before you we went some sightseeing and then the day after we were in the lobby and there Patrick and me met all the guys from the team888. They where all really nice and then you came with Gil and Beto and after introducing ourselves we went eating in the hotel we had a great time and getting to know each other better and better.
Then of course the tournaments started! We had a great day one, and lots of 888 cheering in the media. I was best of all the Dutch people so had some great advertisement for them. The best thing was I think that we made such a good binding whit all the team mates and we not only had some good fun, but we where coaching/massaging even!! Ha-ha and the feeling of being part of the 888 team were great. I saw some other sponsored players from other sites but what I saw was that we had dinner with each other and they didn’t, and I think everybody was like damn that’s a really great new group of 888 players.
Well after a really amazing week with a great result for me, 16th place in first event for 888! I hoped to make it to the final table but then I was like nooo cant make them too happy already! Ha-ha, no joking! I hope I will make it next time, but after my result I saw how the press in Holland wanted to know more about me and team888. So I think the management of 888 definitely did make the right decision to start the team, and I think with this we can make 888 a bigger site and the more we can do the more exposure we can give!
It’s just too bad I can’t be in Down- Under because of personal stuff, but I’m there the next time and I have some great ideas.
Steve many many thanks for giving me the chance to be in the 888 team. I hope I can play many many more events for 888 in the future, because it’s not that I only play 888. IM AM 888!!!

During the last event in Prague I really enjoyed being a member of the 888 'club'. First of all I had a great time in Prague. The last year my poker skills are getting better and better. For sure, sometimes poker is a lonely business but know I played in a team I saw a different way of approaching poker.
Playing in a team makes poker for me just a little more enjoyable than it already is. Not only for the sponsorship but especially for the more social influences it brings. Playing a tournament with a group of people surrounding you feel almost as home being with your friends. Which makes it more fun to play. And more fun in playing gives better results. In first place for myself but of course for 888 as well.
The sponsorship of 888 is something I really hoped for a couple of years ago. I think 888 has a good player in me. Promoting 888 surely gives a lot more exposure for the bigger public. I think I can help getting 888 more popular than it already is. For example the amount of people asking me during the last tournaments about your site gives me a good idea about my influence.
Playing more tournaments in the future as a member of 888, for sure the site will become bigger and bigger. More people can easily find the site because of the exposure brought by me and the team of 888. I hope in the future I can become a more sincere part of the group and become one of the best poker players in the world and making 888 the best site to play.
England vs. Andorra - World Cup Qualifier match Steve M - UK
“I would just like to say a very big thank you for the great hospitality that was provided for the England game last night, what a treat on becoming a VIP. A special thanks to Steve, although we have spoken on the phone but never met until last night we got on very well and had such a laugh, glad he’s on board with 888.com... what a top bloke. So once again many thanks and hope we meet up again.” Steve M, from UK

I have arrived yesterday and still recovering from Vegas. Thanks for the pictures, there are a couple of good once which u should post for sure (swimming pool and giant champagne) I give you below a short Kerry Bradshaw (Sex and the City) style of blog. I hope you like it. I license u to chop it and rearrange for publication.
Again I arrived to Vegas. Straight after arrival came to party which 888.com gave to gather its qualifiers before the Main Event. The party was great - celebrities, vip treatment and all that. However, the most amazing thing is that you meet in person players who you play online every day, and after couple of drinks with them you become weak. You seem to forget that these very same crazy-maniac-lucky-fishy-bastards, as you used to call them till that night, just a couple of days before were hitting rivers all over the place and made you feel miserable. So there I was enjoying cocktails with my new friends and thinking to myself - OK I am gonna win the first prize but who among them will reach second? In next couple of days Mr. VIP Steve from 888.com made sure we have a good time in Vegas. Dinners, clubs, chilling at the pool, in one word he provided all conditions for us to become millionaires. The tournament started, my confidence was high. Everybody was there, completely unaware that small but elite 888.com crew was up to conquering Vegas. I still cannot find any reasonable explanation for why we failed. I was casualty of day three, just a couple of thousands before the goal. Bad luck I guess. Despite an early exit my spirit did not go down, and I enjoyed Vegas for couple of days more. You do not have to win the tournament to feel great. Just being there with the 888 crew is a win-win situation.

Mark K - UKThanks for the hospitality that my guest and I received at the England game. We both had a great day and were very impressed with Steve who looked after us as well as ensuring we had a great time. We are both looking forward to meeting Steve and other players again in future events.
"I would like to say thank you once again for your fantastic hospitality at The Oval on Friday at the 888.com VIP party with Shane Warne. Receiving coaching and batting with Shane Warne bowling was extremely challenging and an absolute privilege!"

"I want to thank you, for the wonderful fun evening you sponsored for us all in Toronto. We really enjoyed it and we took a lot of memorable memories away with us. It was like being with old friends, especially with recognizing some of the players that were there from last year."
Harry N, Canada
"We want to thank you for the great event which 888.com invited us to. Since ages we did not have as much fun and we met so many nice people in such a short period of time. This evening was just perfect, everything was as it should be and we think that for some of us this was the hottest event of the year. 888.com showed in an impressing manner how they treat their VIP members!"
Raymund B, Germany
"You have really surprised me with this amazing flower bouquet and all the nice 888.com goodies in the bag and the lovely meal of course (mhhh yummy). I will never forget this for sure. I have attached photos of the flowers".Rosi S, Germany

Naomi M, Canada
"Many thanks for your e-mail. The day and the company were delightful and as I said Grainne and you made the most perfect hostesses. I do hope we meet again under similar circumstances and I must say 888.com should be very grateful for such efficient and nice staff."
