Earlier this week, the stop hosted a $360 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed MSPT Regional event, which saw Bobby Sanoubane of Aurora, Colorado top a field of 770 entrants to capture a $33,000 first-place prize.

As for the Main Event, the last time the MSPT visited Golden Gates was back in March, where Kane Lai topped a field of 409 entrants to win a $101,365 first-place prize. Interestingly, Lai won the HPT Ameristar St. Charles for $150,593 yesterday.

"Since joining the MSPT schedule, the Golden Gates Casino stop has proven to be a hit among players," said MSPT owner and operator Bryan Mileski. "If the turnout for the Regional Event is any indication, the Main Event is slated to smash the guarantee yet again!"

"Our property sits in the center of Blackhawk’s casino district and is surrounded by the magnificent Rocky Mountains," Tony Niehaus, poker room manager at Golden Gates Casino, previously told PokerNews. "We also have a beautiful creek running alongside the property. The scenic views of Blackhawk are amazing and just a short drive on any road will lead to spectacular views and even natural wildlife sightings. Just up the street is old town Central City that brings an old western feel to gambling. The ski resorts are just a one-hour drive from the casinos and offer unmatched skiing and entertainment."
