Sad news everyone, Alistair Findlay from www.aworldofpoker.com has passed away after a short illness.

Pretty much if you played poker at any fessy after the poker boom, you likely will have seen Alistair doing live updates there. He was a really nice guy and an ever present figure in UK poker.

Details here

Best wishes to all his friends and family

A more genuine bloke you couldn't wish to meet. He gave me some good advice once and I was too daft to take it.

RIP Alistair

Ghastly news.

A true poker enthusiast - he did things for poker, and not many can say that.

Never heard a bad word about him, and never heard him speak ill of anyone. A proper man.

Sympathies and thoughts are with his family.

RIP Alstair.

Didn't know him well, but remember him from when I used to play a lot live, and he was a really nice guy.

Terrible shame Sad

RIP.

Sad news, he was a fantastic character and always good company.  I've just got a smile on my face remembering him chatting up the waitresses in the Golden Nugget buffet.

AWOP was the first poker forum I went on. Al was a poker pioneer in my early days of the game with updates nutz tv. Became a friend to all that met him. RIP Foxy.

Very sad news, met him at a few of the Gala Tour events when I was first getting started in poker. He was a lovely, genuine man. RIP.
