Three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, Brian Hastings, has shrugged off his recent online poker problems to join Multi Action Poker as a spokesperson for the company.
The three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner is the latest professional poker player to become affiliated with Multi-Action Poker (MAP). A new form of poker that was unveiled at the Isle of Capri Casino in Pompano Beach Florida in May.
“Multi Action Poker is a fun new variant of live poker,” said Hastings. “The action is fast and furious and players get significantly more hands per hour. MAP is an online poker player’s live poker dream game.”
PAC Gaming CEO, Tim Frazin, invented the game and it provides double the fun for everyone involved. The play still takes place around a single table, but there are two dealers, two decks of cards, two sets of chips, and two different games.
When you watch the game in full flow it looks confusing, but the players seem to pick it up very quickly. Tables are lined with multi-colored areas so players and dealers alike can differentiate between the cards and chips of each game.
Both games play out simultaneously, and they can be different variants i.e. one can be a game of No-Limit Hold’em and the other Pot-Limit Omaha. The casinos love it because they are getting more rake per hour, and the players love it because they are seeing more hands per hour.
“We are excited to announce Brian as part of the MAP team,” said Frazin. “As a three-time bracelet winner and one of the all-time online money winners, Brian is a great addition to our growing team of top professional poker players.”
The game was first launch back in the spring. During that time Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi and Jennifer Harman were affiliated with the game as spokespersons. Former PokerNews sideline reporter, and now poker pro; Kristy Arnett has since been added to the team.
