The RunGood Poker Series continues next week at Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa, which is just across the river from Omaha, Nebraska. The series, which will run from March 4-8, will feature 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, which graces the schedule for the very first time, will also feature a slew of RunGood Ambassadors. Among those on the team are Bernard Lee, Joe Serock, Dan "Wretchy" Martin, and Chris Conrad, as well as the two newest additions to the team – Chance Kornuth and Jordan Morgan.
All the team pros in attendance 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.
Also confirmed to be in attendance is Ben Wiora, who recently topped a field of 463 players to win the Wisconsin State Poker Championship at Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells for $114,512. Wiora his trip to Council Bluffs planned long before his big win, but now he'll be coming with a much bigger bankroll. Wiora is expected to play all of the events, and in between can likely be found taking advantage of the Horseshoe's great cash game selection.
