MSPT partners with PokerNews, ventures into Wisconsin



The Mid-States Poker Tour has been making waves as of late by venturing into Wisconsin and forging a powerful partnership with PokerNews, an industry leader in live reporting.

“Partnering with the world’s leading poker website brings a level of prestige and national exposure that only the PokerNews brand can provide,” MSPT founder Bryan Mileski said. “PokerNews offers the best live reporting in the poker community, and we look forward to utilizing their resources at upcoming MSPT events to give the players, the casinos we partner with and the tour even greater exposure.”

In addition, the MSPT has ventured into Wisconsin for the first time with the new MSPT Ho-Chunk Wisconsin Dells event, which first premiered in November and returns in March.

“I think the biggest draw to the Ho-Chunk event is the fact that it’s a great vacation spot, indoor waterparks everywhere, very family friendly,” Mileski said. “It’s a great opportunity for many players to bring their significant others and kids, and they have things to do all day to keep them busy. Ho-Chunk is also centralized between the Minneapolis, Chicago and Milwaukee markets, just a couple hours from each. Combine that with a tremendous group of Wisconsin players who don’t get a lot of opportunities to play $1K events in the state and you’ve got a great crowd.”
