Iowa Stop at Meskwaki Casino
The Meskwaki Casino will be hosting the MSPT this month, with satellites running now to March 21st to offer players a more affordable way to take part in the Main Event. The Main Event will offer a buy-in of $1,100 with $300,000 in total prize money up for grabs. The event runs during the 20th to the 22nd, with a good turnout expected.
Last March, the event saw just over 400 entries with Steve Federspiel earning the win. The tour saw another 400+ entry turnout during the Iowa State Poker Championship which took place at the venue in July.
In April, the tour heads to Black Hawk, Colorado to offer players an MSPT Signature Series. The stop will take place from April 13th to the 19th at the Golden Gates Casino. The series will kick off with the $60 NLHE Casino tournament followed by a $250 Senior NLHE event. Many of the tournaments on the schedule are quite affordable including additional $60 NLHE events as well as a Tag Team Championship with a $250 buy-in.
Perhaps the most anticipated event on the schedule is the Main Event, set to take place starting April 16th. The event has a buy-in of $1,100 and will offer a prize pool of $200,000. There are several satellite options on the schedule for this event so players can try to earn their way for less than the $1,100 buy-in. satellites cost $265 to enter.
