Brush up on your mixed games with Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome
So we're agreed, we all know how to play hold'em (ahem). But hold'em is not the only variation of the game to make us scratch our heads from time to time.
The mark of a good player is often their ability to master games beyond those in our hold'em comfort zone, and then play them all in "mixed games" to a high standard.
If this sounds like something you might want to try for yourself then you might want to tune into the PokerSchoolOnline Twitch Channel this week, when mixed games will be the topic of conversation as another member of Team Online takes to the airwaves.
Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome knows a little about this. It might sound disingenuous when asked "what's your favourite variation of poker?" to reply "all of them," but that's Rowsome, a popular member of Team Online who juggles work and a young family in the same way she juggles hold'em, Omaha, stud and draw.
What's more talonchick will be Twitching this Thursday, October 22 at 15.00 ET on the PokerSchoolOnline Twitch Channel. You can watch her play, send questions and learn a little of what it takes to master what to some might seem close to impossible.
So if you're looking at ways to become a better mixed game player, want to know which strategies to use, or if you're new to the whole concept of what a H.O.R.S.E. is, this will be a great place to watch and learn. And in talonchick you'll have an excellent guide, as this video goesto a little way to demonstrate.
As we mentioned last week, PSO has a number of Twitch streams, each designed to pick up on various elements of the game and help players of all abilities to improve their game. Check out what's on offer, and at the same time don't forget the live training on PSO. It's a great resource for new and experienced players alike.
