For the third and final time in Season 10, the MSPT is headed to Meskwaki Casino in Tama, Iowa. A series of satellites kicking off September 25th will feed into the 24th MSPT Main Event ever held at the venue.
The $1,100 buy-in, $300,000 guaranteed Main Event will run the weekend of November 1-3.
Back in March, the first MSPT Meskwaki of Season 10 drew 409 entries and saw Steve Federspiel walk away with an $86,949 first-place prize. Then, in July, Des Moines, Iowa’s Josh Meyer bested a 401-entry field to win the 2019 MSPT Iowa State Poker Championship. In this same event last year, Taylor Howard prevailed over 423 entrants to win the tournament for $89,939.
Meskwaki has set aside a block of rooms for MSPT players at sensational rates. BUT this block of rooms always goes fast so reserve your room TODAY! Make sure you ask for the MID-STATES POKER TOUR room block or they may tell you the hotel is sold out.
