Mistie Lackey is the second of the many expected Female Poker Player Center Stage highlights. This section on Women’s Poker World comes about due to the Women’s Poker Association (WPA) Player of the Year Spotlight which we are closely watching. Their Spotlight puts the Female Poker Players on our center stage! Firstly, a big congrats to Mistie. Now lets turn the light on her and get her in the center of the stage!
Mistie a Future Force to be Reckoned With!
Mistie Lackey recently took home her first WSOP Circuit Ring by winning the Ladies WSOPC Event at the Horseshoe Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi. The thing that stands out most about this is Mistie had not previously been listed on the Hendon Mob Database.Certainly a force to be reckoned with in the future we suspect.
Lackey’s first recorded score on The Hendon Mob database was $4803. Amazingly she played heads-up with last year’s champion, Lori Lindley, for the coveted Ladies WSOP Circuit Ring. Just another indicator of her exceptional ability.
