If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to see Niagara Falls, you’ll have the opportunity come September. That’s because the MSPT has added a new stop in Season 9.
From September 15-23, the MSPT will visit New York for the first time. A series of satellites will feed into a $1,100 buy-in, $200K GTD Main Event at Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, New York, which isn’t far off from Buffalo.
The $1,100 Main Event, which requires players be 21 or older, will feature two starting flights beginning with Day 1A at 2 p.m. on Friday, September 21. Day 1B will take place at the same time on Saturday, September 22. Both days will play 16 levels. The surviving players from both flights will then return at 11 a.m. on Sunday, September 23 to play down to a winner.
The entirety of the Main Event will be live reported in the MSPT's live blog.
Seneca Niagara Casino has a great poker history and has hosted events like the Western New York Poker Challenge, Summer Slam, and a Fall Poker Classic. It’s there that a number of players have risen to prominence including Andy Spears, Dan Wagner, and Kimo Sabe Mezcal MSPT Season 8 Player of the Year Chris Meyers.
“I’m very excited the MSPT is coming to my home casino,” Meyers said of the announcement. “There are a lot of great players at Seneca Niagara Casino, and I can’t wait until they get to experience one of the country’s best poker tours.”
MSPT President Bryan Mileski echoed those sentiments: “I had the opportunity to visit Seneca Niagara Casino in December and was thoroughly impressed with the property, especially the recently-expanded poker room. Not only will this stop offer great poker action, there’s plenty to see and do with Niagara Falls minutes away. It’s a destination experience.”
