40.786944, -119.204444 | Poker Players Congregate


Each year, poker players all make their way to the Nevada dessert for a get-together … however, plug-in these numbers in your GPS (40.786944, -119.204444) and you’ll soon realize that you’re not in the heart of Las Vegas playing the World Series of Poker, but instead, you’re in the middle of nowhere, connecting with other humans at Burning Man.

For a full week 65,000 friends meet at Burning Man for an experience of a lifetime. Art meets life and self-expression has no boundaries … some of poker’s brightest minds were part of this year’s experiment, including: Antonio Esfandiari, Brian Rast, Jeff Gross, Igor Kurganov, Scott Seiver, Sorel Mizzi, Shannon Shorr, Benjamin Hamnett, Matthew Waxman, Dan O’Brien and Liv Boeree:
