Mistie Lackey recently took home her first WSOP Circuit Ring by winning the Ladies WSOPC Event at the Horseshoe Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi. Also impressive, it is her first recorded score on TheHendonMob database: $4803. Amazingly she played heads-up with last year’s champion, Lori Lindley, for the coveted Ladies WSOP Circuit Ring.
A proud native of Nashville, Tennessee, Mistie drives 4 hours to Mississippi where The Horseshoe Casino & Hotel in Tunica offers many poker series for her to choose from. She also enjoys their table games like blackjack. Her job in the Safety Department of Lyft affords her the opportunity to travel and play poker. She attributes her love for the game of poker to her Mother.
“The Horseshoe Tunica WSOP Circuit was absolutely wonderful. I was elated to play in this event and having won it has made me hungry to play more. I can’t encourage women enough to get out and play! I met some incredible women that I will continue to be friends with.”
Mistie Lackey 1st Place $4,803.
