Benny Glaser is a mixed games specialist from the United Kingdom. With three WSOP bracelets to his name, he is finally getting some recognition as a world-class mixed games expert. We talk to him about why he chose to focus on games that, especially in the UK, are played far less frequently than no-limit hold ’em, why these games haven’t taken off in popularity, how he stays on top of so many different games, and the threat that artificial intelligence poses to non-hold ’em games.
Plus, a big announcement from Nate, and Andrew discusses a big call down he made in the WSOP Main Event.

Beginning of Level 2, 150/300. I open to 750 UTG2 with ATo (while noting that the very active Euro on my left is doing the fold hold). CO, BN, and BB call. CO and BN are among the weaker players at the table, BB seems quite good.
Flop T66cc, check to me, I bet 1200 into 3000ish, only BB calls (he called pretty quickly, though I put less stock in timing tells for better players).
Turn 4o. He checks, I bet 2200, he raises to 8000, and I take a long time calling.
River 3o. He bets 16K into 25K.
