Mid-States Poker Tour's Running Aces Main Event begins Friday

18 September 2017

For the second time in Season 8, the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) is heading to Running Aces Harness Park in Columbus, Minnesota – which is just north of the Twin Cities.

The $200,000 guaranteed Main Event, which requires players be just 18 years of age to participate, will run from 22 September 22 through 24 Sunday. The tournament features two starting flights beginning Friday evening with Day 1A at 4 p.m., followed by Day 1B at the same time on Saturday. The remaining players from each flight will combine on Sunday morning at 11 a.m. and play until a champion is crowned.

“The MSPT has visited Running Aces each year since our first season, and the latest will mark our 12th Main Event held at the property,” said MSPT President Bryan Mileski. "As always, we expect Minnesota’s best to turn out in force, but they’ll have to contend with those who plan to make the trip over from such states as Wisconsin, Iowa and North Dakota.”

The Main Event final table will be broadcast LIVE (15-minute delay) worldwide on msptpoker.com using RFID technology allowing all viewers to see the hole cards. In addition, the entirety of the Main Event will be live reported in the MSPT live blog, which can be found on msptpoker.com once the tournament begins. Simply look for the neon green button that reads "Live Updates."
