The RunGood Poker Series will visit Downstream Casino & Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma from Feb. 4-8 for five days of poker, five side events, and a $100K guaranteed $675 buy-in Main Event, which will also award the winner a $10,000 seat into the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event.
The stop will feature 10 RunGood Ambassadors who will not only take part in the action, but also keep players entertained with a RunGood Happy Hour on the first night followed by a $125 buy-in RG Pro Bounty Tournament. Among those serving as RunGood Ambassadors are Bernard Lee, Joe Serock, Dan "Wretchy" Martin, and Chris Conrad, as well as two new additions to the team – Chance Kornuth and Jordan Morgan.
The RunGood Poker Series is part of RunGoodGear.com, poker’s premier online-store for apparel. The brand launched during the 2012 WSOP and made a big splash when Rob Salaburu represented them at the final table, a tradition that followed the next year with Jay Farber. More recently, RunGood was represented by three November Niners — Jorryt Van Hoof, William Tonking, and Dan Sindelar – in the 2014 WSOP Main Event.
Last year the RunGoodGear.com Downstream Casino Main Event attracted 262 runners and saw Mark Martin, who was fresh off a 24th-place finish in the RunGoodGear.com Hard Rock Tulsa Main Event, walk away as the victor for $36,218. Martin's victory came after outlasting a tough final table that included Ryan Tepen (9th - $3,924), Terry Karn (7th - $5,659), Michael Sanders (4th - $10,715), Justin Gardenhire (3rd - $15,091), and Mike Tang (2nd - $22,334).
“We’re ready to bring another great season of poker to players in 2015," said Founder and President of RunGoodGear.com Tana Karn. "We always have an amazing group that comes out with the priority to have fun. If you haven’t been to one of our series yet make sure you mark your calendar for one today.”
