Following the action, Brad and Andrew will hold a Meet & Greet from 8:30 – 10:00 p.m., which will include a spread of complimentary food and drinks.
“I had the pleasure of traveling to Cambodia last year, and it was an unforgettable experience with great food, great people, and great poker,” said Neeme. “I’m happy to have the opportunity to return and excited to run back the Meet-Up Game.”
“After hearing about Andrew’s time in Cambodia, I really wanted to make the trip as well. I couldn’t let him have all the fun.” said Owen. “The MUG is going to be a great time and I’m also pumped to play some tournament poker in Cambodia for the first time.”
