The Mid-States Poker Tour, in its fifth season, will make its first stop at Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee from Aug. 30-Sept. 7. The $1,100 main event will run Sept. 5-7 and feature a $200K guarantee.
The MSPT set a Wisconsin record in March when 393 entrants created a prize pool of $393K at the Ho-Chunk Wisconsin Dells stop, which marked the fourth time the MSPT held an event in the state.
“The MSPT is excited to return to Wisconsin for the inaugural stop at Potawatomi,” MSPT owner Bryan Mileski said. “The tournament is expected to pull players from Milwaukee and nearby Chicago, as well as from the entire Midwest. There’s an extremely good chance we’ll set yet another Wisconsin state record come September.”
Potawatomi Casino has 20 tables operating 24 hours a day, a bad-beat jackpot and a new hotel that’s 18 stories tall with 381 city and lakeview rooms.
Because of the new hotel and the nearby poker markets, there is talk Potawatomi Casino may host a World Series of Poker Circuit stop in the near future.
