THE BIG DEAL

Where Meeting Pros
Play to Win


The MPI Foundation invites you to a thrilling night of tournament poker at The Big Deal at WEC 2017. One lucky player will win a $10,000 seat to compete at the 2018 World Series of Poker® (WSOP) Main Event.

With the support of our partners, Caesars Entertainment and Encore Productions, the excitement surrounding The Big Deal goes way beyond the tournament. This is where meeting pros play to win. Try your luck at Poker, Blackjack, Craps and other fun tables. Enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres, open bars and serious raffle prizes. Returning to call the tournament shots is TV celebrity and WSOP host, Jack Effel.

Dress is business causal. Please wear your WEC badge.
