The Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) is entering the home stretch in its 10th season, and PokerNews is not only slated to live report the final five Main Events of 2019, but will also offer live updates from the MSPT’s 11th season in 2020.
The MSPT, established in 2009, continues to grow and establish itself as one of the premier tours in the United States with a strong presence in the middle of the country. They’re also closing in on a milestone of awarding $100,000,000 in prize money (they’ve currently awarded $97,315,597).
"We’re excited to partner with PokerNews for our upcoming 11th season, which is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet."
Known for their $1,100 Main Events and $350 Regional Events, the MSPT also offers live streams for most Main Event final tables, a monthly magazine (available for free in both print and digital formats), established its own MSPT Hall of Fame, and has a strong presence on social media.
“We’re excited to partner with PokerNews for our upcoming 11th season, which is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet,” said MSPT President Bryan Mileski. “We look forward to setting more state records, crossing the $100-million mark in prize money awarded, and continuing to offer players great tournaments across the country. Now, players from around the world can follow the action via PokerNews’ live updates.”
With PokerNews on-site at MSPT events, players will have the opportunity to utilize the popular MyStack app, which allows them to input their own updates, chip counts, and other information straight into the live blog.
Previewing the Upcoming MSPT FireKeepers
The next MSPT stop is coming up October 10-13 at FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek, Michigan. The $1,100 buy-in, $1,000,000 GTD 2019 MSPT Michigan State Poker Championship tends to be the largest Midwest stop on the tour and is looking to eclipse a seven-figure prize pool for the sixth time in a row.
The Main Event will offer three starting flights at noon each day from Thursday, October 10 through Saturday, October 12. The surviving players from each flight will then return on Sunday, October 13 to play down to a winner. The final table will be livestreamed on a 15-minute delay.
Last year, the tournament drew 1,271 entries and saw Matt Stammen, the older brother of WPT champ Keven Stammen, take it down for a $218,565 payday. The year before it was Chris Meyers who topped a 1,067-entry field to win $191,196 on his way to capturing Season 8 Player of the Year.
The stop comes on the heels of the May event at FireKeepers, which set the Michigan state record for largest poker tournament with 1,592 runners.
