In November, the MSPT is headed to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino for the 2017 MSPT Wisconsin State Poker Championship, an $1,100 buy-in Main Event that features a $200K GTD. Click here to see the full event schedule.

If you’re planning to attend that event, which will take place in Milwaukee, then you may want to pencil in a stop to Madison’s legendary sports and poker bar, Players Bar. Owned by poker legend Mark “P0ker H0” Kroon, Player’s is where Phil Hellmuth cut his chops before heading out to Vegas and winning the 1989 World Series of Poker Main Event.

Players, recently named one of Madison’s best dive bars, is also known for their popular “Burger of the Week,” and we’re proud to announce that we’ve partnered up with Kroon and company to offer a “MSPT Burger” to patrons Monday, November 6 through Wednesday, November 15.

“We are very excited to partner with Players Bar to offer players a MSPT Burger that was created by our crew,” said MSPT President Bryan Mileski. “Mark Kroon and his bar have been a staple in the Badger State poker for decades, so it’s the perfect place to offer players the chance to win their way into the 2017 MSPT Wisconsin State Poker Championship.”

The burger will include Mayo, Sweet potato fries (on the actual burger), Pepper jack cheese, and Topped with Avocado. As a bonus, anyone who buys a MSPT Burger at Player’s will automatically be entered into a drawing for a $250 satellite seat (winner to be drawn Wednesday, November 15). That means you could potentially win your way into the $1,100 Main Event, which will take place the weekend of November 17-19, for the cost of a burger.

“We offer one of the best burgers in town, and the MSPT Burger will be no exception,” Kroon added. “Not only will you be entered into a drawing just for buying a burger, Players Bar will donate $1 to charity for every MSPT Burger sold.”

So, there you have it. By buying a MSPT Burger, you’ll not only get a good meal and be entered into a drawing for a $250 satellite seat, you’ll be supporting charity while visiting a Wisconsin poker landmark.

Players Bar is located at 2013 Winnebago Street, Madison, Wisconsin and open daily from 11AM-2AM.
