As the MSPT clears the halfway point in Season 10, it’s time to look ahead to MSPT153 at JACK Cleveland Casino in Cleveland, OH – a 21 or older event.
The $1,100 buy-in, $300K GTD Main Event will take place August 1-4 and will be preceded by a series of $70, $145 and $265 satellites where every single satellite boasts a 10-seat guarantee! The stop will mark the MSPT’s 153rd Main Event but just the third ever at JACK Cleveland Casino.
In 2018, the inaugural MSPT Cleveland Poker Open attracted 581 entrants and saw Abdul “Dulie” Amer, a good friend of poker pros Adam Friedman and Nick Guagenti, capture the title and $118,350 first-place prize.
Fast forward to January 2019 where the MSPT JACK Cleveland Casino event attracted 725-runners creating a prize pool over $700K making it by far the largest major poker tournament ($1K+ buy-in) in Cleveland’s history, breaking our own record from the previous year. In the end, it was Sean Munjal of Ann Arbor, Michigan, who navigated the field to take down a $140,654 first-place prize.
The property, which is open 24/7, is a 300,000-square-foot complex – 96,000 square feet are dedicated to gaming including slot machines, table games, and poker – the property is located inside the historic Higbee Building on Public Square, which is adjacent to the city’s entertainment district.
The casino, which is within minutes of Quicken Loans Arena, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and FirstEnergy Stadium, offers 1,600 slots with denominations from 1 cent all the way up to $500 per spin, as well as nearly 100 table games including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and several poker variants. In addition, poker players can grind it out in the 30-table poker room, which hosts games (hold’em, Omaha, 7-Card Stud, and Razz are all offered) around the clock.
JACK Cleveland Casino also has you covered for parking as players may either valet or self-park at the casino’s dedicated 1,300-space parking structure located at the corner of Ontario and Prospect streets. K Level card holders park for free, while other ClubJACK members park free based on rated play.
While you’re at JACK Cleveland, you can choose from several dining options including a buffet restaurant, three quick-serve food outlets, and three feature bars. In addition, Boston-based burger-chain, Wahlburgers, is located in retail space adjacent to the casino parking structure.
Speaking of those three casino bars, they all offer premium spirits, cocktails, beers, and wines. Additionally, Rock Bar & Lounge offers 35 flat-screen TVs and the area’s only electronic table games.
