Part of the tournament festivities include two no-limit hold’em games. There will also be three ante-only short deck events, plus six hold’em tournaments. There are going to be variations on almost every poker game that exists.
Koon is extremely happy to be going with Paul and Richard to play at the games, along with seeing some of the other players in the poker industry.
