(pokernews.com)- Season 6 of the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) continues from October 31 through November 8 atMeskwaki Casino in Tama, Iowa. The stop, which only requires players to be 18 years old, will begin with a series of qualifiers, and will culminate with a $300,000 guaranteed Main Event.
The last time the MSPT visited Meskwaki Casino was back in July when MSPT Team Pro Blake Bohn, fresh off a 23rd-place finish in the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event, topped a field of 410 entrants to win the $101,229 top prize and his second MSPT title. Before that, at the March stop,Chad Willett topped a field of 371 entrants to walk away with a $96,760 first-place prize.
“Meskwaki Casino has a rich history on the MSPT,” said MSPT owner and operator Bryan Mileski. “Year in and year out it proves to be one of the most successful stops on the schedule, and we expect yet another large field due in no small part to it being centrally located for players in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.”
Located in Tama, Iowa — between Des Moines and Cedar Rapids on Highway 30 — Meskwaki Casino features a huge bingo hall, table games, active craps tables, good blackjack games, horse book, indoor pool, exercise room, spa, and a large number of hotel rooms.
“Whoever said ‘you need your best poker face and winning strategy to win at poker’ must not have played at Meskwaki Poker Room,” Poker Room Manager Joseph Fernandez previously told PokerNews. “Whether you are a newcomer, a pleasure player, or a high-stakes thrill seeker, we have a game for you. Our classic card room and cozy players’ lounge exude such rustic and scintillating ambience that makes every poker game more of a friendly art than a gut-wrenching science and, therefore, your winning out of luck is never ever frowned upon.”
