Mid-States Poker Tour to Visit Maryland Live! for Very First Time April 6-19

MSPT Maryland Live!

It's always exciting when the Mid-States Poker Tour adds a new stop to the schedule. Season 6 kicked off back in January with a first-time stop at bestbet Jacksonville, and from April 6-19, the tour will pay a visit to another new venue — Maryland Live! in Hanover, Maryland.

The stop will kick off with a series side events, qualifiers, and super satellites into the $1,110 buy-in Main Event, which will feature three starting flights from April 16-18 (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday). The PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on hand to capture all the action from that event, and of course players will have the opportunity to use the My Stack app to update their hands and chip counts straight into the live blog.

"PokerNews can’t wait to see what Maryland Live! has to offer," said PokerNews Editor in Chief Donnie Peters. "Since the room opened up in the middle of 2012, it's been a real hotbed for poker action. Now, in conjunction with the MSPT, we expect to see big turnouts and big prizes awarded at the upcoming stop."

Likewise, MSPT owner and operator Bryan Mileski echoed those sentiments: "We're very excited to have the tour stop at one of the country's premiere gaming venues. Maryland Live! has established itself as a top poker destination, so we're confident the MSPT's first time in town will be a big success."
