The Manitoba Lotteries present their 2nd annual Manitoba Lotteries Poker Open which will take place between April 11-15, 2012 with three great poker tournaments and an estimated $600,000 total prize pool.

This  Manitoba Lotteries Poker Open will be held at the McPhillips Station Casino in Winnipeg.

Last year’s inaugural event drew a total of 919 entries across the 3 No-Limit Texas Hold’em Poker tournaments and prize pools of over $470,000 and we expect this year to be even better.

The series will start with a $600 buy-in event on April 12 & 13. Last year the tournament drew 273 players making a prize pool of $150,150 with Darryl Wettlaufer taking first prize and $39,416.

On Day 2 of the series, we have a $300 buy-in bounty tournament. Last year over players competed for their share of more than $86K including $21K in bounties. The winner of the tournament was David Trozzo who took home $22,571 for first place.

These two events will culminate into the $1,100 buy-in main event April 14-15. Last year this event saw 212 players compete for a share of $212,000 with the big winner being Ken Hunter taking home $56,162.

It’s gonna be a super tournament this year with a great atmosphere once again and for those of you coming from out of town, you can make your buy-ins online via Ticketmaster to guarantee yourself a spot.
