The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) is in full swing in California, with the series having started on January 4. The Thunder Valley Casino Resort is playing host and this weekend, the series Main Event is set to take place. The big tournament starts on January 7 and includes a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool with a $575 buy-in.
Details of the Main Event
The California tournament will begin at 11 am on Friday with Day 1a. At 4 pm, session 1b will begin. On Saturday, players will start day 1c at 11 am. By Sunday, the remaining players will return to the poker room to compete in the final day of the event.
Every player is allowed re-entry into the event one time on each day 1. Those who do not re-enter can choose to ditch their chip stack going into day two and start over with a starting stack for $575. On day 1s, players are given 25,000 in chips and blinds increase every 30 minutes. On day 2, the blinds will increase to every 40 minutes.
RunGood started the week with multi-table satellites for the main event along with the RunGood Ambassador Bomb Pot Bounty on Tuesday. The Fifty-Five event started on Wednesday and today, the series starts the RunGood PLO event and more satellites.
As the RunGood Poker Series concludes in California, it moves on to host three more series stops in the New Year. First up is San Diego at the Jamul Casino. From February 1-6, the casino will offer premium tournament options. This series will include a seniors event, pro bounty option, DeepStack, Two Green Chip Bounty, Turbo satellites for the Main Event, and of course, the Main Event.
Next up is the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The casino will host the series from February 15-20. This stop has a seniors ring event along with a guest bounty ring event, DeepStacks, satellites, Omaha options, and much more.
The tour then heads to Tunica, Mississippi in early March to offer gaming at the Horseshoe Casino. Details have not been provided for this series yet but should be coming soon. There are still two months of gaming to get to before the Horseshoe hosts the series.
Each stop is expected to see a good turnout of amateur and professional players. Live poker gaming has been lacking for quite some time in the US since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and players are taking advantage of any gaming they can access.
