Photo Caption:  All hands on deck.  What a day Sunday will be.  The poker world is waking up to what is arguably the most exciting day in its storied history.  No less than three gold bracelet final tables will be played today – including the 2012 Ladies World Poker Championship.  Meanwhile, more than 3,100 players began Saturday’s tournament, which continues with Day Two.  Then, there’s the $1,000 buy-in event that begins at noon, which should easily surpass 3,000 participants.  If that’s not enough, there’s a certain poker tournament that begins which is a little more expensive to enter, than normal.  That’s right, the long-awaited $1 Million buy-in “Big One for One Drop” has finally arrived.  Cards fly in the air at precisely 1:11 pm.  So, that’s three gold bracelets to be won, the Ladies World Championship to be decided, two monster-sized tournaments to be played, and then the richest poker tournament in the history of the world which also begins on a Sunday that should be spectacular.
