Mixed Game Festival VII Draws Bracelet Winners; John Rozance Wins NAPT Package

The poker room at Resorts World Las Vegas once again transformed into a mixed game oasis this past week as Cardplayer Lifestyle hosted its seventh Mixed Game Festival from Feb. 25-29.

The Mixed Game Festival VII featured everything from a pizza party and trivia challenge to a Women's Wednesday and a $300 H.E.R.O.S. tournament that awarded a $3,000 PokerStars North American Poker Tour (NAPT) package to the winner.

PokerNews' own Chad Holloway, Matt Hansen and Connor Richards were in the mix over at Resorts World and got a glance of the popular poker festival that has drawn players from around the world. Here's a look at some of the highlights.

The first tournament at the Mixed Game Festival VII was a $300 buy-in Omaha 8/Stud 8 event that drew 27 runners including four-time bracelet winner Kevin Gerhart and veteran poker live reporterMike Patrick, who ended up shipping the event for $2,695 after a heads-up battle with John Rozance.

On Day 3, Poker Hall of Famer Eli Elezra made his way to the low-stakes table and played a few hands off the stack of Cardplayer Lifestyle's Robbie Strazynski. It is not the five-time bracelet winner's first stop at one of the Mixed Game festivals hosted at Resorts World, where he can frequently be found playing $300/$600 in the high-stakes room.

Elezra wasn't the only bracelet winner at the mixed game tables as 2023 WSOP Big O champion Scott Abrams, two-time bracelet winner Nathan Gamble and 2013 Employees Event winner Holloway all found their seats throughout the week.

Those who attended Day 4 of the festival were treated to a Women's Wednesday class hosted by fellow Women in Poker Hall of Famers Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher. The class, a partnership with the Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS), started with an overview of Razz and Omaha 8 and moved to break out tables before a micro cash game practice session.
