The Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Poker Championship is once again looking to leave its mark from September 25-29, as players will once again “Go All-In on the Prairie” at the McPhillips Station Casino in Winnipeg.

Since entering the major tournament scene in April of 2011, the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Poker Championship has shown steady growth and some of the best player numbers of the Prairie Provinces since the introduction of these semi-annual series. Of particular note is breaking the 400 entry mark on several occasions, as well as some of biggest Prairie turn-outs of recent years in it’s 2 day $1,100 No Limit Hold’em Championship.

With it’s central location on the map making travel affordable for many Canadians, generous structures offering plenty of play with ample rest periods worked in, past presentation of winners trophies and accessories; we can only assume these events will only continue to gain momentum on the Canadian circuit scene.

Over $600,000 in combined prize-pools could be up for grabs should all events sell out; so far history has shown $400,000+ is a very reasonable expectation for those looking to size the stop up.

This year, players can also qualify for their seats online on PlayNow.com who are running online satellites from August 25 to September 22.
