Another weekend for the history books folks. Two breathless days of non-stop poker, large quantities of beer, and a volume of general merriment unrivalled anywhere else. You know you’re at the LWPS when the entire table takes turns to knuckle bump-you when you double-up.
After a five month hiatus, the LWPS returned to the M/V Leisure World over the weekend, heralding the start of its third season. If there was any doubt that tournament poker was alive and kicking in the region, it was quickly dispelled within 2 hours of the Main Event, when the organizers declared Flight 1A sold out. By the time late registration for Flight 1B closed, a total of 167 runners had ponied up the buy-in, blitzing by some distance all LWPS prize-pool and field size records.
