Play with poker professionals
As always, the Mixed Game Festival offers players the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the best and brightest poker players.
Founder of CardPlayer Lifestyle Robbie Strazynski told PokerNews that will also be among the visitors to the festival Justin Saliba, Andrew Yeh, Scott Abrams, Nathan Gamble, Kevin GerhartWomen in Poker Hall of Famer Lupe Soto and Poker Hall of Famer That is, Elezra.
As with mixed game festivals in the past, the upcoming festival will feature a pizza party, a poker trivia competition and the opportunity to win prizes at the tables.
On Women’s Wednesday, the festival features a special morning program hosted by the Poker Hall of Famer Linda Johnson and Women in Poker Hall of Fame Jan Fischer. The program, in collaboration with the Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS)begins with an overview of Razz and Omaha 8 before moving on to a break-out table session and micro cash game training.
Strazynski said he is particularly excited about the Women’s Wednesday program “because two of the game’s best ambassadors will teach more people how to play, allowing mixed games to grow organically.”
“I hope that participants in the Women’s Wednesday program quickly develop a taste for non-Hold’em variants and then aim to attend more of our festivals in the future,” he said.
PokerNews was at the sixth annual Mixed Game Festival last November, playing with the likes of Elezra, Johnson and John Cernuto, and will likely bring variety again at the upcoming festival.
