PokerStars 8-game Mixed goes high stakes

If you went to bed early last night, you might have missed it. What started as a plan for Team PokerStars Pros Barry Greenstein and Daniel Negreanu to play some big heads up games suddenly turned into a full high stakes cash game table.

You might already know about PokerStars' 8-game mixed tables that offer a rotation of Hold'em, Omaha H/L, Razz, Stud, Stud H/L, NL Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, and 2-7 Triple Draw.

PokerStars offers this mix at limits as low as .20/.40, but the new $400/$800 game is what has got people talking.


Last night, Greenstein, Negreanu, and Gavin Griffin were joined by such names as psykokwak, RAYNEE, jmonnett, Amke, groth91, and tiffaniejoy for the nosebleed game. Some players had stacks of more than $120,000 sitting on the table in the early morning hours.

Obviously, these are the kinds of games that we'll want to be watching going forward. We expect the game to become a weekly affair. If plans don't change, the game will be going off next Sunday, March 8 at 21:00 EST.

In the meantime, if you want to try out the mix for yourself, you can find it in the PokerStars lobby under OTHER GAMES -- MIXED GAMES -- 8-GAME.
