Running Aces has set the schedule for their fall “Midwest Poker Classic”. While we love the card room at Running Aces the MPC in almost every way is the little brother to Canterbury’s Fall Poker Classic. How so?
The MPC is shorter (it runs from Sept 21 to the 30th), meaning it has about half the events. Those events are (nearly across the board) cheaper to enter and turnout has always been less than at Canterbury. Then, throw in the fact that it occurs just before the FPC and the Midwest does feel like a warm up event.
Still, it’s a worthy event. Saturday, 09/22 bring a $500 NL Hold’em Deep Stack event. If that’s a little too pricy there’s another Deep Stack the next day for $150 and again on the 27th. Karaoke will likely be playing the 6pm, $150 OH8 Spread limit tourney on Wednesday, 09/26.
