Deepstacks Poker’s company motto is “Play where the pros play,” and starting Feb. 9, two of the top professional poker players in the world will host the PacWest Poker Classic at Chinook Winds Casino Resort.

Players could find themselves sitting across from Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi and two-time World Poker Tour winner Randal “Randallin” Flowers in cash and tournament Texas Hold’em games.

The PacWest Poker Classic runs for 10 days and features 18 separate tournaments culminating in the $100,000 main event starting Saturday, Feb. 16, and ending with the final table showdown on Feb. 18.

“The cool thing about poker is for a tank of gas, a hotel room and a buy-in, you’re able to sit with a pro like the Grinder and potentially eliminate him and win the tournament,” says Deepstacks founder Chris Torina.

A former narcotics detective in Seminole County, Fla., Torina began playing poker eight years ago and founded Deepstacks in 2007.
