$1 Million Guaranteed

The $1 million guaranteed Main Event will feature three starting flights, the first of which will kick off on Oct. 13, while the next two flights will play out the following two days.

In exchange for their $1,110 buy-in, players will receive a starting stack of 25,000 chips.

Day 2 of the Main Event will take place on Oct. 16 and will play down to a winner, who will take home the trophy and the lion’s share of the $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

For those who don’t want to put up the $1,110 buy-in, there will be a handful of satellite opportunities.

Players can either play a $70 satellite where one in five players advances to the $265 satellite, or they can buy directly into the $265 satellite, which also awards seats to one in five players.

Previous Winner

When the MSPT was last at FireKeepers Casino in May, it was Dan Bekavac who took down the $1,110 Main Event to win his fourth MSPT title. Bekavac secured the fourth title after a three-handed deal with CJ Peake (2nd – $241,290) and Marquez Davis (3rd – $198,975).

Others who went deep in the event include poker commentator Jamie Kerstetter, Chris Tryba and 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion Joe Cada.

The event attracted 2,330 runners to generate a massive prize pool of $2.3 million, so don’t be surprised if the upcoming event surpasses the $1 million guarantee.
