Schedule Highlights

The Main Event has three Day 1 starting flights scheduled, one per day starting on the 22nd. All remaining players will return to Sycuan Casino on the 25th to play down to a winner.

On September 15, the series kicks off with the $360 Mystery Bounty event, a new phenomenon in tournament poker. Players draw mystery bounty envelopes as opposed to the traditional set payout per bounty.

No-limit hold’em is the main game to be played during the MSPT United States Poker Championship, but it isn’t the only game. There will be one pot-limit Omaha tournament, a one-day $250 buy-in contest with $100,000 guaranteed on September 16.

The series features an impressive mix of NLH games, including the Mystery Bounty, a $300 MSPT Tag Team Championship (September 20), and a $250 Seniors (50+) event on September 19.

Players can earn their way into the Main Event for as little as $135 via satellite tournaments on September 19 and 22 where one in 10 players receive a ticket. There will also be multiple $265 buy-in satellites available starting on the 21st.
