There is a new kid on the block in the live tournament world that looks set to become an instant hit with the poker community.
The inaugural MPN Poker Tour (MPNPT) festival takes place at Aspers Casino in Stratford, London between May 29 and June 1 and features no fewer than six superbly structured tournaments including the eagerly anticipated €550 buy-in MPNPT London Main Event.
As the tour is run by MPN – formerly known as the Microgaming Poker Network – there are plenty of opportunities to qualify for the MPNPT Main Events at MPN online poker sites. Major MPN operators running satellites to the MPNPT include Triobet, British bookmakers Stan James and BetVictor, Paf, NordicBet, betsson, Betsafe, 24hPoker, Pokerihuone and our personal favourite Poker Heaven.
Download Poker Heaven via PokerNews and enjoy a 200% match up to €1,000 Welcome Bonus that clears at a rate of 20% cash back.
Each of those aforementioned MPN sites offer two routes to the MPNPT Main Events: (1) A €550 Main Event Seat Only and (2) A €1,500 MPNPT Main Event Package. The graphic below gives the perfect insight into the routes you can take on your way to MPNPT glory.
As you can see, the Seat Only final costs €80 to enter, but don’t be put off by the asking price because you can start your journey towards that €80 Friday final for as little as €0.50.
The same is true for the weekly MPNPT Package finals that costs €215 to buy into. You can enter the qualification route at any stage shown in the above graphic, so you should be able to find a starting point that is suitable for your bankroll’s limits.
Should you be fortunate enough to secure yourself an MPNPT Main Event package, this is what you can look forward to receiving:
- The €500+€50 Main Event buy-in at Apsers Casino, Stratford London
- 4 nights’ accommodation at the Holiday Inn, Stratford, London from May 29 to June 2
- Breakfast and internet at the hotel
- €275 spending money
- Entry to the players’ party at Aspers Casino, Stratford, London
Please note: the final MPNPT London Packages satellites ran on May 11, any Packages won can be used for the upcoming Malta festival that runs September 11-14. Seat Only satellites will run up to the start of the MPNPT London Main Event.
Although MPNPT satellites run most frequently online, there are large numbers of players who prefer to attempt to satellite into live events via live satellites. The best value live MPNPT satellite we have found takes place on the day prior to the MPNPT London Main Event kicking off.
