Last year in a similar pair of events in November (albeit with smaller guarantees), Landon Tice topped an 1,123-entry field to win the $1,100 buy-in, $200K GTD Main Event for $201,529. In the $1,600 MSPT Venetian Main Event, Korey Payne bested a 1,239-entry field to win $327,773.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Venetian stops actually mark the third time the tour has visited the venue this year. Back in February, the MSPT hosted the annual $1,100 buy-in, $1 million GTD Poker Bowl, a tournament that attracted 908 runners and saw Johnny Oshana take it down for $130,000. In January, they also hosted a $1,100 Main Event that drew 1,009 entries with poker pro James Carroll winning it for $180,850.
