MATT HYLAND WINS MSPT HINCKLEY, $38,707
The 27-year old Machinest captures second major title in 13 months
In September, 2009, Matt Hyland won the Heartland Poker Tour Mille Lacs event for $49,932.
Thirteen months later, he has added a Minnesota State Poker Tour championship to his resume — at Grand Casino Hinckley for a cash prize of $38,707.
Hyland outlasted a field of 139, as well as a stacked final table that included current MNPokerMag Player of the Year leader Everett Carlton and online stud Lance “kingpin023″ Harris.
A Machinest from Brainerd, MN, Hyland has now cashed for more than $100,000 in live tournaments since September, 2009. Hyland turned 27 on Thanksgiving, just days before his big MSPT victory.
