The 2014 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is coming to a close -- all that is left is to crown the Main Event champion who will be guaranteed to win $10 million. The finalists will be determined in the coming weeks, and will meet again in November to determine the winner.
For those of you who have been following (or playing in) other events at the WSOP this year, you might agree that we saw some very exciting contests between many highly skilled players in the non-Hold'em events. It should be clear by now that anyone serious about duking it out for a highly coveted WSOP bracelet (or making it on to a Fantasy Poker League roster for that matter) simply can no longer afford to ignore the mixed games events.
Even if you are just a casual player or an observer, there's no better time to start familiarizing yourself with mixed games than now (it's as easy as picking up a copy of A Poker Player's Guide to Mixed Games - now on sale at Amazon.com).
Here's a list of this year's WSOP bracelet winners, in non-Hold'em and non-Pot Limit Omaha events:
