MSPT Returns to Majestic Star Casino August 16-18


For the fourth time ever, the MSPT is headed to Majestic Star Casino in the East Chicagoland area (Gary, Indiana) from August 16-18.

A series of $65 and $250 satellites will feed into the $1,100 buy-in MSPT154 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, August 16. Day 1B will take place at the same time on Saturday, August 17. The surviving players from both flights will then return at 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 18 to play down to a winner.

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

In January of this year, Mike Shin of Milwaukee, WI topped a field of 309-entrants which eclipsed the largest field of 301 at the property. Shin walked away with the $68,593 top prize! The win was the second largest of Shin’s career after the $427,930 he received for finishing 12th in the 2016 WSOP Main Event.

"I feel awesome, man! I don't know what else to say." Shin said after his victory. "I try not to miss these events, especially in this region."

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.
