June 04, 2022
MSPT Venetian

The Venetian 2022 Championship Poker Series kicked off back on May 2 and is slated to run through July 31. During that time the 133-event series will offer more than $22 million in guaranteed prize pools.

Some players to capture titles thus far include Evan Shaughnessy (Event #13: $400 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty for $,6038), Dorian Rios Pavon (Event #28: $600 NLH Monster Bounty for $43,549), and Josh Suyat (Event #37: $600 NLH Monster Stack), just to name a few.

This coming week, the series will partner with the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) for a pair of events – both of which will be live reported by PokerNews – that are primed to be among the biggest of the summer.

MSPT Venetian

$1,600 NLH w/ $2 Million GTD

First up is the $1,600 buy-in MSPT Venetian featuring a $2 million guarantee. That tournament, which will start players 30,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels, features three starting flights starting with Day 1a at 11:10 a.m. PT on Monday, June 6 (late registration is open until 6:40 p.m.). Days 1b and 1c will take place at the same time on Tuesday, June 7, and Wednesday, June 8 respectively.

The surviving players from all three flights will then return at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 9 for Day 2 action, with the Day 3 finale to follow at Noon on Friday, June 10. PokerNews will be on-site throughout to offer live updates.

In 2021, the tournament attracted 2,011 entries and offered up a $2,865,675 prize pool. Coming out on top was poker pro Chance Kornuth, who claimed a $412,086 top prize. Kornuth has been on a heater lately by capturing his first World Poker Tour (WPT) title and finishing runner-up in a 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) event.

$1,100 NLH w/ $1.5 Million GTD

Players will then have to wait just two days for the next MSPT Venetian, which is a $1,100 buy-in with a $1.5 million guarantee. That tournament will start players with 25,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels.

Day 1a will kick off at 11:10 a.m. PT (late reg open until 6:40 p.m.) on Sunday, June 12 followed by Days 1b and 1c at the same time on Monday, June 13 and Tuesday, June 14 respectively. Day 2 will get underway at 12:10 p.m. PT on Wednesday, June 15 with the Day 3 finale taking place at Noon on Thursday, June 16.

Tournament officials are hoping to surpass the massive turnout of 2,790 entries from the summer of 2021. That offered participants a $2,692,350 prize pool and saw 63-year-old Harlen Miller of Bismarck, North Dakota emerge victorious for $367,801.
