Beginning Saturday, Nov. 2, the PokerNews Mid-States Poker Tour Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells in Baraboo, Wisconsin kicks off a week of festivities that culminates with a $1,100 Main Event on Nov. 8-10. Located just minutes from Wisconsin Dells — one of the top tourist and waterpark towns in the nation — Ho-Chunk proved to be a tremendous success in its inaugural year on the MSPT schedule.
It was in Sept. of last year that the MSPT event at Ho-Chunk Gaming, the first ever in Wisconsin, drew 244 runners and generated a prize pool of $243,600 — the largest ever in the state at that time. Joe Illingworth of Iowa emerged victorious in the event and took home $65,742 for his effort.
This past March, the MSPT arrived at Ho-Chunk Gaming again and the Main Event attracted 300 entrants creating a new state record prize pool of $299,800. Daniel Bekavac of Chicago, Illinois took home $76,668 and the RF Moeller diamond championship bracelet for the win.
The PokerNews MSPT rolls into Ho-Chunk Gaming for the third time this week, and once again this event boasts a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. Check out the event schedule by clicking here.
