The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) is headed to Oklahoma Oct. 11-16 for RGPS Tulsa, a poker stop that will feature a $600 buy-in Main Event with a $100,000 guarantee.
The RGPS Tulsa stop, taking place at Hard Rock Casino Tulsa, will also feature a handful of other Ring Events and satellites into the Main Event.
$100,000 Guaranteed Main Event
The $100,000 guaranteed Main Event will have three starting flights, the first of which will kick off on Oct. 14 while the next two flights play on Oct. 15.
The exchange for their $600 buy-in, players will receive a starting stack of 30,000 chips with blinds starting at 100/200/200. The Day 1 flights will play until 12.5% of the field remains from each and the remaining players will combine on Oct. 16 for Day 2, which will play down to a winner.
For those who don’t want to put up $600 for the event, there will be a number of satellites running for an opportunity to win a seat, including a $150 satellite awarding ten guaranteed seats and another $150 satellite awarding five guaranteed seats.
Other Ring Events
RGPS Tulsa will kick off on Oct. 11 with a the $200 Seniors Ring Event and a $160 Ambassador Bounty Ring Event, which will feature special guests with bounty envelopes that contain prizes between $1,000 cash and RunGood apparel store credit.
Next up on Oct. 12 will be two flights of the $250 Studio Ticket Ring Event, which will award a seat into the 2022 All-Stars ProAM Event at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas in December.
Day 2 of that event will play out on Oct. 13, alongside a $200 No-Limit Hold-em Ring Event and a $300 Pot-Limit Omaha Ring Event.
After the Main Event, a $200 Closer NLH Ring Event will close out the series on Oct. 16.
When the RunGood series was last in Tulsa in 2019, the $675 Main Event attracted 319 runners and it was Blair Hinkle who won the trophy and $44,012.
Hinkle entered the day as the overall chip leader with 37 players left and kept it all the way until heads-up play against Matthew Blackwell, who he eventually overcame to win the title.
Other players who made deep runs in the 2019 RGPS Tulsa Main Event include Michael Crawford (3rd- $18,662) and Greg Jennings (4th – $13,015), who recently won back-to-back World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit rings in the same venue at WSOPC Tulsa.
