For Season 9 of the MSPT, we’ve expanded our relationship with Minnesota’s Canterbury Park, home to the first-ever MSPT event.

In 2018, we’ll host five tournaments at the card room including a $350 Regional Event and four $1,100 Main Events. In December, we’ll once again hold our Season 9 finale at Canterbury Park, but for the first time ever it will feature a massive $500,000 guarantee.

As for the four $1,100 Main Events, the first will take place February 17-25, and players need be just 18 years old to play. A series of satellites at Canterbury Park – a suburb minutes south of the Twin Cities – will feed into a $1,100 buy-in, $300,000 GTD Main Event held the weekend of February 23-25.
