Downstream Casino

RunGoodGear built its reputation as a poker clothing company, but now the brand has expanded into a poker series. From March 5-9, 2014, the Downstream Casino in Quapaw, Okla. will play host to the inaugural “ Poker Series,” a 10-tournament series culminating with a $100,000 Guaranteed Main Event (which will also award a seat into the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event).

Team Run Good Pros will be in attendance, including professional poker player and media personality Bernard Lee, Octo-Niner Rob Salaburu, WSOP bracelet winner Bryan Campanello, World Poker Tour Ones to Watch Alex Phahurat, and longtime circuit grinders Justin Gardenhire, Clint Tolbert, Huy Nguyen, and Michael Sanders.

“I am thrilled to be a part of’s inaugural poker tournament series,” said Lee, who is an experienced teacher with both the WSOP Academy and WPT Boot Camp. “It will be exciting for me to represent both on and off the felt.”

The series kicks off March 5 with a free hour-long satellite poker workshop with Lee. All workshop attendees will be entered into a drawing for a free seat to the Last Chance Turbo on Sunday, March 9.
