MSPT to Host $500K GTD Main Event at The Venetian from September 3-5
- The $1,100 buy-in, $500K GTD tournament will run from September 3-5
- It will take place as part of DeepStack Extravaganza III
- After the Venetian, the MSPT has five more stops scheduled for the rest of the year.
Fresh off from holding a successful Main Event just over a week ago at Grand Falls Casino in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) heads over to the Venetian in Las Vegas this weekend for another massive Main Event which comes with a $500,000 guarantee.
Running from September 3-5, the MSPT Main Event will headline Venetian’s popular DeepStack series which just got underway on August 29. The $1,100 tournament was last held at the venue during the summer and saw Argentinian poker pro Federico Roberto beat out a 2,154-entry field to take home the $294,327 top prize.
The MSPT Main Event involves two Day 1 flights which kick off on September 3. Players begin the action with 25,000 in starting stack played to 40-minute levels. The champion is guaranteed to take home a six-figure top prize and also walks away with an MSPT trophy.
The MSPT Main Event is the main highlight of DeepStack Extravaganza III, a month-long festival that features a total of 60 events running until October 2. It’s the third time that the series is held this year, with the latest edition set to award $3.8 million in guaranteed prize money.
