The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) continues its Road Trip with a trip to Kansas City from October 24-29 for six full days of poker action at Harrah’s Casino with a $1,100 Main Event that guarantees a prize pool of $200,000.
In addition to the $1,100 Main Event, the series also offers a two-day $400 Deepstack and the RGPS Step Satellite the week before the series kicks off.
The RGPS Step Satellite will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 17, Thursday, Oct. 19, and Monday, Oct. 23. The first two days will offer a $100 satellite where one in five players will move on to Monday’s $400 Mega Package Satellite. Mega satellite players will take their shot at a winner’s package that includes a $200 buy-in, a $400 buy-in, and a ticket to the $1,100 Main Event.
The last time RGPS was in Kansas City was in May of 2023 when Andre Allen won the Main Event for $86,550 against a field of 497 entries.
Throughout the Road Trip series, Main Event winners will secure a spot in the Dream Seat Invitational at Thunder Valley Resort in November. The winner of the Dream Seat Invitational will be entered into the invitation-only PokerGO Tour Championship in December where they will battle it out with the game’s top players for a $1,000,000 prize pool.
The series kicks off on Tuesday, Oct. 24 with the $250 Seniors Ring Event and the $200 Series Opener at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., respectively. Later in the day, a RGPS favorite is on offer with the $200 Ambassador Bounty Ring Event at 7 p.m. Players will have a chance to knockout special guests to win RGPS Apparel or $1,000 cash.
Wednesday offers a $100 Deepstack Turbo Satellite that will offer a seat in the $400 Deepstack Ring Event, which will have flights at 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. The survivors of both flights will meet on Thursday at 12 p.m. for Day 2. Thursday will also have a $135 Main Event Satellite and a $300 One Day Ring Event before a $250 Double Green Chip Bounty Ring Event later that evening.
The $1,100 Main Event starts on Friday, Oct. 27 with a 9 a.m. satellite for $135 and the first flight in the evening at 5 p.m. For the four-card players, a $500 PLO Ring Event starts at 12 p.m. on Friday and another $135 Main Event Satellite will go at 1 p.m.
Saturday has two more satellites at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. that will offer players a seat in one of the remaining two flights. Main Event players sit down at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. and the remaining players return on Sunday at 1 p.m. to play down to a champion.
Sunday’s final day festivities include the Main Event’s conclusion, as well as a 9 a.m. satellite that feeds into the 2 p.m. $400 Black Chip Bounty Ring Event. There’s also one last chance at a ring in the 6 p.m. $200 Closer to close out the series.
