The prize pool got to a total of €241,500, while the initial guarantee was for €200,000 and was considered ambitious.

The next event from MPN Poker Tour will be in April, in Sofia. Alex Scott, from Microgaming, seemed to be quite pleased with the way the event turned out in Vienna.
The beginnings of the MPN PT were back in 2014, in May, and it started with a small event that took place in London. Now, it’s turning out into a large poker series with international events, thanks in part to the big guarantees which are offered.
