Feedback

I’ve been playing poker for over 15 years. After meeting Shannon roughly six years ago, he introduced me to the mixed game scene. Since then, the mixed games have started to grow more and more. I believe that introducing the Mixed Games Academy will only grow the games I know and love. After reading the game mix and looking over the structures I feel the Mixed Games Academy is the future of mixed games in Australia – I can’t wait to see this grow.

I have played and directed poker tournaments for many years. When I began playing mixed games I wanted to improve on the dealing and TDing side of things, thanks to MGA I am now familiar with over 60 variations of mixed games – something I would never have had the opportunity to learn if it wasn’t for MGA.

As a keen mixed game enthusiast I am proud to be on board as the major sponsor through the Andrew’s Group (Andrew’s Airport Parking, Busy Beaver Airport Parking and Big Boy Car Rentals). 
Mixed games in Australia have historically had a relatively small following with little growth in comparison to NLH. With the launch of the Mixed Games Academy (commencing January 2023) it’s our intention to provide quality mixed game tournaments while simultaneously increasing player interest. MGA Founder, Shannon Van Den Berg, has our full confidence in bringing these mixed games to a whole new level of exposure – giving them the prominence they deserve in the Australian poker scene. Let’s face it, once you’ve learnt how to play these games, there’s no turning back!
For those of you who don’t know Shannon, he is a qualified tournament director of all games and would be, in my opinion, the most experienced and qualified tournament director of mixed games in all of Australia. This, coupled with his own business experience in finance, we could not be behind a better operator to be promoting and running mixed games in Australia – exciting times ahead!
