Cardplayer Lifestyle will be hosting its seventh Mixed Game Festival, a five-day affair at Resorts World Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, with a PokerStars-sponsored NAPT Prize Package to be awarded.

We’re proud to announce that Mixed Game Festival VII will see a return to the fabulous Resorts World Las Vegas from February 25-29 to stage what’s sure to be another exciting week of mixed game poker.

The festival will include a pair of tournaments, namely a $300 Omaha 8/Stud 8 tournament on Monday February 26, and a $300 H.E.R.O.S. tournament on Thursday February 29 as our grand finale.
