MSPT Potawatomi $350 Regional kicks off

12 July 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- For the second time in Season 8, the MSPT is at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This time, the downtown venue is playing host to a $350 buy-in, $200,000 guaranteed MSPT Regional Event.

The first of three flights will be held on Thursday, 12 July with Day 1A at 5 p.m. Day 1A will play 16 levels. Friday's and Saturday's Day 1B and 1C will start at 5 p.m. and 2 p.m. respectively and also play 16 levels. Players who advance to Day 2 from a previous flight are not eligible to play in a subsequent flight. The remaining players from each flight will combine on Sunday morning at 11 a.m. and play until a champion is crowned.

Space is limited and we're once again expecting a massive turnout. Alternates are a strong possibility so be sure to register early.

The MSPT has hosted four previous Regional Events at Potawatomi. The first was back in January 2016 when Oscar Arndt topped a field of 904 entries to win a $58,964 first-place prize. Six months later, it was Vinh Tran who conquered a then-record field of 1,169 entries to win $49,944.

In January 2017, Craig Trost bested 1,228 entrants – at the time the largest tournament by attendance ever held in Wisconsin – to take home a $63,252 prize. However, the MSPT Regional last July saw 1,658 runners take to the felt, which created the largest poker tournament ever held in Wisconsin. That tournament ended in a chop between Matthew Vignali ($70,240) and Alexander Hill ($60,000).

The latest MSPT Potawatomi Regional, the fifth held at the venue, will be the 25th Regional Event since their inception at the beginning of 2015. The Regional Events are designed to offer players the opportunity to play MSPT’s lauded “Chainsaw-Approved” $1,100 Main Event structure at a more affordable price point.

Potawatomi Hotel is offering MSPT players a rate of just $139/night for the upcoming MSPT $350 Regional event 12-15 July 2018.
