MSPT Returns to Chicagoland Area’s Majestic Star Casino for Two Stops in Season 10


For the third time ever, the MSPT is headed to Majestic Star Casino in the East Chicagoland area (Gary, Indiana) from January 3-27.

A series of $65 and $250 satellites will feed into the $1,100 buy-in MSPT141 Main Event, which requires players be 21+ to play. That tournament, which will offer a $200K GTD, will offer two starting flights starting with Day 1A at 3 p.m. on Friday, January 25. Day 1B will take place at the same time on Saturday, January 26. The surviving players from both flights will then return at 11 a.m. on Sunday, January 27 to play down to a winner.

Also, on that Sunday there will be a $340 NLH Last Chance Casino Bonus Event beginning at Noon.

“Poker at Majestic Star has changed a great deal since our last visit to the property,” said MSPT President Bryan Mileski. “That’s due in no small part to new poker room manager Nick Zacny, who is committed to revitalizing poker at Majestic Star. We’re looking forward to our return in Season 10.”

The MSPT first visited Majestic Star back in March 2014 (Season 5) when Ken Baime topped a field of 301 entrants to win the title for $77,681. Five months later, the tour returned to the venue and saw Brian Zimcosky top a 228-entry field to win $61,870.

The MSPT is slated to hold another $1,100 buy-in, $200K GTD Main Event at Majestic Star from August 16-18, 2019.
