Bekavac wins MSPT Potawatomi

9 April 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Season 10 Milwaukee Poker Open at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino saw 625 players take to the felt in search of an MSPT Main Event victory. Dan Bekavac, a Wholesale Distributor for Amazon from Chicago, Illinois, who in Season 4 shipped MSPT Ho-Chunk Wisconsin Dells, bested the field and shipped the $126,998 top prize for his second MSPT Main Event title.

"I feel good, finally got it off my back. It's been six years, finally got another title!" Bekavac said after the victory, flanked by the boisterous rail that rallied him through the final table. Bekavac notched six of the nine knockouts at the final table, and when asked how he approached the final table, he said he wanted to " aggressive, put the pressure on, and just make 'em fold."

One member of the epic rail was his wife, Bridget, and they have a huge family: "We got eleven kids, all under the age of thirteen, all living in one house, a big house." Bekavac has some pretty exciting plans for his rail concerning his winnings: "I told them if we win we're goin' to Fiji, so I gotta pay for a round trip for four to Fiji!"
