MSPT returns to Canterbury Park this weekend

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The first of five MSPT events at Canterbury Park - Racetrack & Card Casino in Season 11 will happen 21-23 February. The venue, which requires players be 18 years or older, will host a series of $65 and $250 satellites in the weeks leading up to it beginning Thursday. The complete schedule is posted on

The $300,000 Guaranteed Main Event will offer two starting flights beginning with Day 1A at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, 21 February playing 15 levels. Day 1B will take place at the same time on Saturday, 22 February and also play 15 levels. The surviving players from each flight will then return at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, 23 February to play down to a winner.

Last February’s $1,100 Main Event at Canterbury Park saw 479 entrants take to the felt in search of a $99,573 first place prize. After two days of play, it was Bemidji's Matt Kirby that recorded the victory, earning his record tying third MSPT Main Event title, tying him with Carl Carodenuto and Blake Bohn for the most Main Event titles in tour history.

Most recently in December at Canterbury Park, the Season 10 Finale cruised by its $500K guarantee by attracting 802 entries, and after a long Day 2, it was Anthony Dunne coming out on top to capture a $155,288 first-place prize. Dunne, who doesn’t have any other documented tournament cashes on Hendon Mob, defeated a tough final table that included three former MSPT champs, two of which were also former Players of the Year. Still, Dunne outlasted them all to claim the title and six-figure score.
