  • MSPT Season 6 continues August 8-16 as the tour visits Grand Falls Casino & Resort in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Last weekend, Lead Pro Blake Bohn captured his second Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) title when he topped a field of 410 entrants to win the MSPT Meskwaki in Tama, Iowa for $101,229. Not only did Bohn vault to the top of the Season 6 Player of the Year leaderboard, he also became just the fourth player to win multiple MSPT titles.

Bohn's first title came in August of 2014 when he won the MSPT Grand Falls in Sioux Falls, South Dakota (technically the casino is just across the border in Larchwood, Iowa) for $54,607. As fate would have it, the tour is slated to return to that stop next month from August 8-16, with a $150,000 guaranteed $1,100 buy-in Main Event scheduled for Friday, August 14 through Sunday, August 16.

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.

"Blake Bohn has been on fire lately," boasted MSPT owner and operator Bryan Mileski. "Fresh off a 23rd-place finish in the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event, he ended up taking down the MSPT Meskwaki. Now we'll get the opportunity to see if he can not only defend his MSPT Grand Falls title, but also go back to back. It should be an exciting stop."
