The bizarre ritual is apparently becoming more common-place on the Caribbean island, although the deceased, Henry Rosario Martinez is the first to be honoured this way in his home town Barceloneta in the northern region.

Well this is a new one.

Apparently earlier this week a pregnant woman named Katrina Sheary went into labor while she was playing Event 1 $1,150 No-Limit Hold’em.

Katrina obviously couldn’t play so Crown Casino allowed her husband Peter to substitute in.

We’ve never heard of a player being allowed to swap in a poker tournament but it’s actually allowed according to the Crown Casino’s terms of service as long as the player didn’t already play in the tournament.

It’s obviously at the tournament director's discretion but he decided to allow it this time around.

The husband Peter went on to finish in 25th place for $6,495. That will buy a pretty sweet crib for the newborn if nothing else!
