MSPT Heads Back to Iowa's Riverside Casino July 23-25; Grand Falls August 20-22

MSPT Riverside

Season 12 of the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) continues this month with the tour’s second-ever visit to Riverside Casino. PokerNews will be on-site to provide live updates.

For the second time this year, the MSPT is headed to Riverside Casino & Golf Resort in Riverside, Iowa from July 23-25 for the $1,110 buy-in, $200K GTD 2021 Iowa State Poker Championship.

A series of $70 and $260 satellites, which will begin in early July, will feed into the Main Event. That tournament will feature two starting flights starting with Day 1a at 3 p.m. local time on Friday, July 23. Day 1b will take place at the same time on Saturday, July 24, while the surviving players from both flights will return at 11 a.m. on Sunday, July 25 to play down to a winner.

The Main Event, which will be live reported by PokerNews, will start players with 25,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels.

The MSPT first visited Riverside Casino back in March when it attracted a state record 862 entries. 27-year-old Daniel Sepiol emerged victorious in that tournament to claim a career-high score of $162,750.

"I've played a lot of these tournaments and made some deep runs but never really made runs at the final table," he said after the win. "So, it feels good."

July's edition is expected to be another large affair, so don't hesitate in making your plans today.

MSPT Headed Back to Grand Falls Casino August 20-22

Grand Falls Casino
MSPT Grand Falls

From August 20-22, the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) will head back to Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, Iowa, which is actually situated just across the border from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for a $1,100 buy-in, $200,000 guaranteed Main Event. PokerNews will be offering live updates from the stop.

A series of $70 and $260 satellites starting at the end of July will feed into the Main Event, which will feature two starting flights. Day 1a will take place at 3 p.m. on Friday, August 20 with Day 1b taking place at the same time on Saturday, August 21. The surviving players from both flights will then return for Day 2 at 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 22 to play down to a winner.

In August 2020, a record-breaking MSPT Main Event was held at Grand Falls. That $1,100 buy-in tournament was the first mid-major poker tournament in the United States in nearly six months due to the pandemic, and the 518 entrants not only surpassed the venue’s previous best field of 238 runners in 2015 but also became the largest major ($1,000+ buy-in) in Iowa history. In the end, 47-year-old Mark Collins, a systems administrator from the St. Louis area, came out on top to win a $107,706 top prize and his second MSPT title. He previously won the MSPT Season 9 Canterbury Park for $102,076.

More recently, the MSPT hosted a $1,100 Main Event at Grand Falls back in January, which is when Chad Bjorkman bested a 488-entry field to win a $101,450 top prize. Then in March, Eric Atchison topped a 794-entry field to win the MSPT $360 Regional Event for $46,020 and his second title in two years.
