The PokerListings Weekly UK 3-Bet is the British poker news gift that keeps on giving, long after the lights have been taken down and the inflatable Santa buried deep in the shed.
Any suggestions for a future UK 3-Bet, drop a note in the comments.
This week in the 3-Bet we find three more amazing Christmas presents from three of the UK’s finest -- Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott, Toby Lewis and Tom Middleton.
1) Devilfish Gets a Baby
2012 was the year where UK poker legend Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott finally surrendered his grip on the GB and Ireland All Time Money list.
Devilfish and the new addition.
Sam Trickett was the man who took that mantle after 2012 became the most barren year Devilfish has experienced on the felt since 1994.
But there was a reason for the dry spell -- and it proved that although his poker results may be barren his testes were not.
Devilfish was planning to become a father -- and succeeded for the eighth time.
Now that’s what you call a Christmas present.
2) Toby Lewis Gets a Personal Hygiene Problem

The girlfriend of Toby Lewis must be given points for originality of thought, despite screwing up the execution.
The online phenom received a personalised number plate reading “Bio Clu” in respect to his online moniker of “810ofClubs”.
It’s just a shame that everyone will be thinking that Lewis has some sort of personal hygiene problem.
After all when Lewis first spied it he thought it said “BIO CLUB” and now his girlfriend is refusing to give it to him.
3) Tom Middleton Gets Celebrity Poker Edition of Guess Who
Everyone needs a good old-fashioned board game for Christmas and Tom Middleton is no exception.
Middy was the recipient of the most amazing ‘Secret Santa’ gift from Ash Mason.
Mason created a Punters Edition of the classic board game Guess Who?
The gaming that then followed was quite amazing. Here are a number of questions both Middy and Mason used to guess identities:
“Do I have shit Jedward style hair?”
“If I was on fire would you piss on me or pour water on me?”
“Have I slept with more than 10 women?”
“Would I make more money begging or playing a years worth of poker?”
“Am I as shit as Mathew Frankland?”
