Announcing Cardplayer Lifestyle Mixed Game Festival V

Cardplayer Lifestyle will be hosting its fifth Mixed Game Festival, a five-day affair sponsored by PokerStars, at Resorts World Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, with an EPT Cyprus prize package to be awarded.

We’re proud to announce that Mixed Game Festival V will take place once again at the fabulous Resorts World Las Vegas from July 2-6. In what’s sure to be another thrilling week of mixed game poker, we’ve incorporated some new elements to ensure this will be our best festival yet.

On the menu will be five straight days of low-stakes cash games — mainly $4/8 and $8/16, with higher stakes games available upon request — catering to lovers of all poker variants, from weekend warriors to home game hotshots, and even to grinders and pros just looking to splash around and take a relaxing break from the major tournament series happening around the city.

But there’s much, MUCH more!

  • Roundtrip airfare for one

The drawing will take place on the festival’s final day, Thursday July 6th, and the lucky winner will have the opportunity to play against some of the world’s top mixed game players at the first ever European Poker Tour stop in Cyprus this October. Here’s what that type of experience feels like.
