Wow. It really is even worse than we thought — and we understood it was heading to be rather undesirable. Hurricane Irma hit the West Indies this week and there has been catastrophic problems to some of our favourite Caribbean islands. All of the resorts in Punta Cana, and St Maarten that we have been to for poker tournaments have sustained significant problems.
St Maarten was hit so challenging that the organizers of the WSOPC match that we prepared to go to in November have no alternative but to cancel the event. No just one understands when the airport will re-open and the host resort is cancelling all reservations for the remainder of 2017.
