After having had such a great trip to cover the 2017 World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions festivities, I thought it would be fun to put together a trip recap post from a more personal angle. Below, you’ll find a short vlog as well as a photo essay with some of my favorite pictures from the trip. Included are some images from what I would certainly call “behind the scenes”. I hope you enjoy vicariously consuming the sights and sounds I experienced at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you!
