First of Two PokerNews MSPT Events at Ho-Chunk in Season 4 Set for March
Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells is located in Baraboo, Wisconsin, just minutes from Wisconsin Dells — one of the top tourist and water park towns in the nation — making it a big draw for players looking to mix a vacation in with a big poker tournament. The entire area surrounding the Dells is a great vacation spot, packed with family-friendly activities, and fun for adults, too.
Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells has 320 beautiful hotel rooms and has teamed up with the PokerNews Mid-States Poker Tour to offer a $99 nightly rate throughout the duration of the MSPT event. Rooms are limited, so book today.
In addition to great lodging, Ho-Chunk has a large gaming floor and a staff that is ready to help with whatever you need. Along with a bustling poker room, slot machines, blackjack and a large bingo hall round out the amenities, with several restaurant options nearby.
Last season’s MSPT event at Ho-Chunk Gaming was the first time the MSPT had invaded Wisconsin, and it proved to be a huge success. The event drew 244 runners and generated a $243,600 prize pool, making it the largest tournament ever in the state of Wisconsin. Joe Illingworth of Iowa was the last person standing, taking home $65,742 in first-place prize money.
The dates of the event are March 16-24, 2013, and the $1,000+$100 Main Event will kick off on Friday, March 22. The PokerNews MSPT will be back at Ho-Chunk twice in Season 4, and it is anticipated that an even bigger field for this upcoming trip to the Dells in mid-March.
