The PokerNews Mid-States Poker Tour at FireKeepers Casino Hotel in Battle Creek, Michigan is set to kick off the Main Event Thursday, March 7. The $1,000+$100 buy-in event features three Day 1 flights on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 7-9, with Day 2 being played out all day Sunday, March 10.
The final table will be streamed worldwide Sunday evening on PokerNews with hole cards, and the winner will be awarded the custom RF Moeller diamond championship bracelet that goes along with the top prize.
Following the completion of the event, the team will load everything into trailer following Sunday night’s broadcast and head directly to Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma to do it again. The MSPT at Downstream Casino series begins Thursday, March 7, kicking off with a $120 buy-in kickoff event. The series will culminate with the $1,100 Main Event March 15-17.
The MSPT train doesn’t stop there. After the stop in Quapaw is completed, the tour will hit its third state in three weeks when it rolls into Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells March 16-24. This event was a huge success last fall when the MSPT made its first-ever stop in Wisconsin and will be back for more and looking to enjoy one of the most family-friendly destinations on the tour. It's impossible to frown when you’re shooting down a slide in the waterpark capital of the world.
Then, March 30 through April 7, at one of the more popular events every year in the Midwest, the PokerNews MSPT and Meskwaki Casino Hotel in Tama, Iowa team up to guarantee another $300,000. Last season, the MSPT at Meskwaki Casino generated prize pools totaling $950,000. The prize pools are large and the cash games are off the charts during MSPT week, making this a can’t-miss event.
