Insta-Photo Gallery

Final table seating and chip counts below this post

In the moments we have before final table action begins, I thought a insta-photo gallery was in order.

One quick housekeeping matter. Unfortunately, unlike the PCA, we will not be able to do a live hand-by-hand. The poker room doesn't have an internet connection. So, my plan is to keep a hand-by-hand record as play progresses and post it at every break. It's the best I can do.

Now, a few photos.
