PartyGammon Million Pictorial #5

Uploaded on the evening of January 24.

We have been so busy formatting data for the ladders and pairings of this tournament that we have fallen behind on getting photos in (very time-consuming) but here come some four to five pages of with 15 photos each. These were taken from January 21-23. Hope you have a fast connection so the download is not too slow.

We have to take off to the tournament room soon to see the semi-finals tonight so the captions on these pix will be short. While you will see a variety of shots in the next few pictorial (see them listed in the Tournaments section), many are photos of players deep in thought and we purposely refrained from using the camera's flash not too disturb their concentration in an event where so much money is up for grabs.

Many other photos, including most of those from the Final match, the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, all taking place tomorrow, will be published by this weekend or early next week when we return home from Atlantis as we are leaving first thing Friday morning.
