Power? Check. Internet? Check? Just waiting for wave upon wave of players to come crashing in to fill the seats, be dealt hands, and start passing chips back and forth.
First up is the $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller, with a dozen events total happening throughout this first day of the festival. Tomorrow comes the Latin American Poker Tour Bahamas event, a $2,200 buy-in affair that was especially popular last year with 736 entries and players coming from 49 different countries to compete.
The LAPT Bahamas event kicks off Season 9 of the tour, and in fact features a bigger buy-in than this year’s Main Events will have ($1,500). But here at the PCA, the event serves as an early, more-than-the-minimum prelim coming before the PCA Main and other tournaments, and so anyone who is here to play poker already will likely be jumping in tomorrow.
Last night a group of us enjoyed a delicious dinner over the bridge at the Poop Deck, where the “Fisherman’s Platter” (which I’m pretty sure I got the year before) again providing a satisfying meal. Already had the chance this morning to reunite with several buds from various outlets here.
