The 14th installment of the Leisure World Poker Series flew by this weekend amidst a flurry of absorbing competition, high-octane action, and unceasing drama. In spite of the increased Main Event buy-in, the Series managed to record its second $10,000 first place prize. The LWPS has already posted record participation numbers and prize pools in its 3rd Season, which augurs well for the development of this poker community, and is testament to the sustained growth of poker in the region.
The weekend was marked by the influx of new faces at the LWPS. While these were faces new to the scene, they certainly weren’t new to poker. The wave of young, online bred phenoms made their presence felt this weekend, as they proceeded to dominate almost every event with their sound fundamentals, control, and reflexive knowledge of odds and sizing.
