Minnesota State Poker Tour Comes To Grand Casino Hinckley
The Minnesota State Poker Tour is coming to Hinckley this week at Grand Casino, with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. The full schedule of events can be found right here.
The MSPT was founded by Bryan Mileski and Phil Mackey. Mackey is a sports radio personality at 1500 ESPN Twin Cities and also does various TV work in the sports media world. He plays poker semi-professionally.
The event at Grand Casino Hinckley this week is the fifth stop in the MSPT in this, the tour’s inaugural season. Mackey says the tour was started to provide an affordable, statewide tournament series with a deep structure that allows people the opportunity to conveniently travel to every single event.
From the diamond bracelets and deep-stack structures to the affordable buy-ins and classy hosting sites, the Minnesota State Poker Tour is designed to cater directly to POKER PLAYERS — players who clamor for affordable buy-ins that also lead to large prize pools, and players who wish for blind structures that allow for patient play without the fear of blinding out.
