Majestic Star’s Poker Tour Offers a Sweet Chunk of Change

by Bob Popper

Majestic Star Hotel & Casino’s Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) event attracted a wide variety of players to the felt in Buffington Harbor during the first week of March. The tourney featured players from the United States, and a number of international contestants all battling for the top prize.

The March 1-9 MSPT tourney structure had a two flight main event system with a buy-in of $1,100. In addition, they had super satellites costing only $60 with a healthy 20% of the field advancing to a $250 satellite. The top 20% of that category would advance to the main event, which pitted a field of 301 hopefuls.

Majestic paid out 36 spots from the field of main event combatants. The final table started on Sunday, March 9 at 8 PM and lasted almost 5 hours before the last 3 players took home their share of the prize pool. Brian Zimcosky lasted long enough to capture third place and take home $28,141 followed by Leon Morford who tucked away a nice $42,401 for finishing in second place.

The tournament winner, who took home a sweet chunk of change was Kenneth Baime. He pocketed $77,681 for his first place finish.
