Enjoy Loads of Short Deck Action at WPT Global

WPT Global is one of the best destinations for players looking to play Short Deck, with plenty of cash game action & some fun MTTs to boot.

Short Deck or 6+ Hold 'em is a game variation that enjoys a lot of popularity in some parts of the world, most notably in Asia. You may have seen this game played on live streams of events such as the Triton Poker Series, and now you can enjoy it at WPT Global.

Short Deck is one of the app’s three poker variations, the other two being regular Hold 'em and Pot-Limit Omaha. But what some players might find particularly interesting is that the action is not limited only to cash game tables.

You will find a decent number of daily Short Deck tournaments, including some featuring progressive KOs and some fast-paced action. The good news is that you do not have to be a Short Deck master to do well in these, as there seems to be a decent number of recreational players in the mix, just looking to have some fun.

So, if you have been looking for a change of pace and are tired of the same old variations, head over to WPT Global and jump straight into some 6+ Hold 'em action, as tournaments and cash games are available around the clock!

Not signed up yet? Take advantage of the WPT Global deposit bonus for new players and get in on the action.

Will Marle Spragg Get Signed to PokerStars?

Our spidey senses are tingling and we think it might be in the cards.

Has anyone else noticed that Marle Spragg — YouTube poker content creator, extraordinaire — is wearing a PokerStars patch — and has been in all the latest videos she has put out from her time at the World Series of Poker 2022?

Well, we sure have.

With her husband Spraggy — a long-time PokerStars Team Pro — Marle getting a permanent patch may not just be supposition.

PokerStars have been known to sign powerful poker couples to their books — despite clearing house in recent years and pairing back its sponsored pro roster considerably.

Back in the days when Igor Kurganov played poker (rather than advised Elon Musk on how to spend his billions), he became a PokerStars Ambassador following in his girlfriend Liv Boeree footsteps — who had been a PokerStars Pro for nine years before leaving the company — and the poker industry — in 2019.

But most importantly, the content Marle creates taps into PokerStars’ niche of aligning themselves with YouTube stars, such as recent pairings with True Geordie and Sideman.

Increasingly, PokerStars are becoming an “entertainment first” company, so having someone like Marle Spragg on the books may make a lot of sense as they continue to invest in social media influencers.
