The Mid-States Poker Tour

The Mid-States Poker Tour

Big tournament. Bigger prize pool!

One of the Midwest’s most exclusive poker tours returns to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. We’ve added even more excitement with Senior, Superstack and Last Chance events! The Mid-States Poker Tour caters to poker players who desire affordable buy-ins that lead to large prize pools and blind structures that allow for patient play.

Satellite and qualifying tournaments run October 8–November 17 in the Poker Room. The Main Event is scheduled for November 14–17 in the Event Center, with a guaranteed prize pool of at least $300,000—last year’s tournament’s prize pool reached $748,000! The Main Event will include a live final table broadcast with hole cards shown.
