One of the lesser-known players getting into the action in this event is Melissa Burr, but just because Burr may be a relatively unknown face to the common poker fan, it doesn't mean she lacks knowledge of these games or skill the can compete with the best of the best.

In fact, Burr has already showed great prowess here at the 2014 World Series of Poker in mixed games by earning the two largest tournament scores of her poker career. First, Burr took eighth in Event #10: $10,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Low Championship for $51,768. She followed that up with a fifth-place finish in Event #30: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low for $39,181. In addition, Burr took ninth in Event #41: $1,500 Six-Handed Dealer's Choice for $9,944.

No stranger to mixed games, Burr recently sat down with PokerNews' Marty Derbyshire to discuss her poker career, how she came about playing mixed games, and emerging as a force at the 2014 WSOP. You can read the feature article by clicking here.
