It doesn’t hurt that the series takes place at the world-renowned Atlantis Resort in the tropical Bahamas, which is a bit of an upgrade over, say, the Rio in Las Vegas.
With thousands of the best poker players in the world converging on the Bahamas, the PCA becomes a mini-summer camp for the entire poker world.
Daily activities include basketball, waterslides and betting hundreds of thousands in Open-Face Chinese Poker games.
The only thing missing is sitting around a campfire and telling bad beat stories.
Oh yeah, there's also the $10,000 PCA Main Event.
Obviously not everyone can attend so we’ve compiled a list of Tweets that should give you an idea of what’s happening in Nassau.
