If you fancy some cash game play, there will be plenty of extra poker games running but if skiing is your thing, you can enjoy some winter sports action as there are two major ski resorts close to the village. You've seen 2D and 3D poker rooms come and go but what about a virtual poker room! It has arrived in the shape of CasinoVR who have just launched a free to play Virtual Reality poker room. They've already seen success with their VR Casino room released at SlotsMillion last year so the VR poker is a treat for all poker fans. How would you fancy playing poker with a dead body seated at the table? Amazingly, that's what happened as a "last game" for a 31 year old poker fan who died mid January in Barceloneta from mixing alcohol and prescritpion drugs. The family of Henry Rosario Martinez asked the funeral home to embalm the body and seat him at the poker table for his wake. It seems this is becoming a very popular "craze" to pose dead bodies in "action" as the funeral director had posed bodies for wakes a few times before. The wake was also filmed.
