I posted some of this on Facebook as soon as it happened.  I wanted to put more detail on my blog.

Unfortunately the recording starts right before I get knocked out. I'm on Twitch!  My stepson is going to be so jealous. At least everyone gets to watch my losing hand. It was fun to play such an enormous tournament at the Golden Nugget.

Pikes Peak Poker reached out to me because their old website needed a refresh.  So I made them this.  I tried wix.com for the first time because I had heard so many good things about them. I needed to see for myself.   I really like the fact that you can create a custom data base to be used throughout the website.   I like the shopping cart. I surprised to find out, after signing up to be a Premium member that many of the add on apps in the app store cost extra. This was disappointing because the shopping app by itself only accepts 2 forms of payment, Paypal and Square. I'm still trying to figure out a way to expand that.  I think I might link back to Facebook for the shopping part.  I am always making tweaks and improving the feature of the website so that it is never completely done.
What do you think?   Leave suggestions in the comments and maybe I will include them in the next update.
