Ben Marsh wins MSPT Main Event

The MSPT Season Final $1,100 Main Event at Canterbury Park - Racetrack & Card Casino attracted a record 493 entries, which surpassed the spring event (475 entries) as the largest major poker tournament ($1K+ buy-in) in Minnesota history.

By the time the stop wrapped, 32-year-old poker pro Ben Marsh finished as the last player standing for $102,493 and his second MSPT title. Marsh, who way back in Season 2 won the MSPT Treasure Island for $40,071, became the ninth player in tour history to win multiple titles.

"I am feeling pretty great," said Marsh, who spends most of his time playing online. "I haven't played a ton of live poker this year and didn't have any luck when I did. This is only my second tournament since the WSOP in Las Vegas."

All told, Marsh now has four MSPT final tables, two wins and seven cashes totaling $189,438.

"The tour has grown so much," Marsh said when asked about the six-year gap between wins. "When I won the first time, first place was only $40K. Everyone involved with the tour has done a great job growing the events. Now they're tournaments that you can't miss. I think in general poker is a lot tougher these days."
