MSPT Season Eight at Meskwaki Casino comes to a close

9 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The last MSPT Season Eight stop at Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel in Tama, Iowa, drew 424 entries, and after an action-packed weekend, 30-year-old Max Havlish had his breakthrough win to walk away with a $90,152 top prize.

"I feel great," Havlish said after the win. "It's about time. I've been working hard at it for a long time, so it's nice to finally take one down."

Prior to the win, Havlish had just one MSPT cash when he finished ninth out of 3,273 entries in the MSPT Venetian for $41,698.

"I was happy to get ninth in Vegas, I was happy how I played, but it was nice to redeem myself," admitted Havlish, who works but plays poker on the side. As for the prize money, he revealed that he and his girlfriend will be taking a vacation.

"She'll be the decider as to where we go," he said.
