Paradise Island in The Bahamas

Here we are on Paradise Island in The Bahamas at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino.

Every year about this time the on-line poker site, PokerStars, hosts one of the largest poker tournaments of the year called the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, referred to as PCA. It has about 1,500 entrants at $10,000 each. Over half qualify on-line, some working their way up through various tournaments for just a few dollars.
 
This is a family event this year. Not only did Allyn and I come to play, but also we were joined by my oldest son Michael, as well as his brother Jeff and his family.
 
Allyn and I played yesterday on day 1a. I busted out a couple hours ago. She lasted the entire long day (13 ½ hours of poker) and has a very healthy stack of  $60,000 going in to day 2. That puts her in the middle of the field.
 
Jeff plays day 1b tomorrow.
 
Oh well, I have some serious relaxation and family time to look forward to and two roots - not so bad.
 
More specifics will be forthcoming daily for the week.
