The Festival Hosts the Mixed Games at the Luxon Pay MPP this Weekend
After a strong warm-up week, the Luxon Pay Mediterranean Poker Party (MPP) in Cyprus is heading into the second week with the Highlight €5,300 Main Event which guarantees a prize pool of €5,000,000.
This weekend The Festival Series will host two events at the MPP and bring the Mixed Game feeling to the newly formed summer poker party in the Mediterranean.
The Festival to Host two Mixed Game Events at the MPP
The Festival Series is going to co-host two events at the Luxon Pay Mediterranean Poker Party and bring some fresh air to the poker tables, offering two mixed game events.
On Saturday, September 3 we will co-host the thefestival.com PLO 4/5/6 Event. This tournament offers a mix of regular, 5-card and 6-card PLO over one day for a buy-in of €1,100.
On Sunday, September 4 we will co-host the thefestival.com H.O.R.S.E. Tournament. This event also runs over one day and has a buy-in of €550.
While the buy-ins at the Mediterranean Poker Party are quite a bit higher than the buy-ins we offer at our own Festival Series stops in Tallinn or Bratislava, we’re happy to bring the mixed game feeling that is such a vital part of our success to the Luxon Pay Mediterranean Poker Party.
Main Event in Cyprus Heating up
Meanwhile, the Main Event in Cyprus is heating up with the first starting day in the bag and the second running today. The final of the €5,300 event with a whopping €5,000,000 guarantee will be played on Saturday.
Players still have the option to play tomorrow's Day 1C and late-reg on Thursday before the start of Day 2. WSOP Main Event Champ is in Cyprus playing all the events, including the Super High Rollers that start next week.
Luxon Pay Last Longer Winner Coming to Bratislava
In less than one and a half months our own next big tournament will start, The Festival in Bratislava. The buy-ins there will be cheaper and guarantees slightly lower, but the entire event will be a big spectacle with 50 separate events and action in more than one dozen poker variants.
One player we're looking forward to welcoming at the tables will be Greg Partridge. The Brit finished 8th in the Main Event of The Festival in Tallinn and won the Luxon Pay Last Longer Bet. Winning this bet was good for a full package to the stop in Bratislava where Partridge is surely going to try and deliver another deep run in the Main Event, which this time will come with a nice half-Million Euro guarantee.
