Penultimate Stop of MSPT Season 6 at Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells November 14-22 0001

In the penultimate stop on the Season 6 schedule, the MSPT will visit Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells from November 14-22. The stop will feature numerous qualifiers, and will then culminate with a $1,100 buy-in $200,000 guaranteed Main Event beginning on Friday, November 20.

The last time the MSPT visited Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells was way back in February for the Wisconsin State Poker Championship, a tournament that attracted 463 runners and saw Ben Wiora walk away with the $114,512 first-place prize.

Wiora has subsequently relocated to Las Vegas, but he did confirm to PokerNews that he would be returning home to Wisconsin to defend his title.

"It's always an exciting time when the MSPT rolls into town," said Wiora. "Both the property and MSPT put on a great tournament, and there's also plenty to do off the felt given Ho-Chunk is just down the road from Wisconsin Dells. Hopefully I'll be too busy defending my title to do anything else but play poker!"

"Season 6 is rapidly winding down, and with a tight Player of the Year race, there's no doubt those looking for points will be making the trip the Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells," said MSPT owner and operator Bryan Mileski. "Every time we visit the property we obliterate the guarantee, most of the time generating a prize pool in excess of $400,000. We expect this time will be no different."
