PYEFACEPOKER CRUSHING THE MIXED GAMES
Mason “Pye_Face21” Pye, better known as “pyefacepoker” on Twitch, is really pushing his Mixed Games Movement, eh?
You’ll rarely see Pye dabble in No Limit Hold’em. But what you will have seen–if you’ve been tuning into his Twitch stream over the past couple of months (and this week in particular)–is him crushing low to mid-stakes mixed game tournaments.
He won his first SCOOP title last month in a $109 buy-in Stud event for $6,729 and he’s remained in good form ever since. Earlier in the SCOOP Afterparty series, Pye finished third in a $109 8-Game 6-Max event for $3,897.
He was playing the SCOOP Afterparty $11 PLO 6-Max PKO on Monday night. He took down this pot with seven left to take the chip lead, and threw in some Fintan dancing to boot.
Alas, Pye took a big hit with three left. It proved hard to recover from.
Ultimately he finished in third place out of 3,293 entries for $2,219.67 ($1,709.48 for 3rd + $510.19 in bounties) after a three-way all-in.
Pye was right back in the action the following night (Tuesday). This time the event was a $109 Stud 8-Max which attracted 399 entries.
With seven left on the final table, Pye sat in second place, despite this loss.
But things didn’t fall his way and he’d have to settle for fourth in this one, narrowingly missing out on back-to-back podium finishes.
Still, he picked up another $2,975 for his efforts.
