Are you ready for a new season of the RunGood Poker Series? This season’s tagline is "The Road to the RunGood Cup," which will lead up to the RunGood Championship Main Event in December.
In between there are three stops on the 2015 Fall schedule, the first being the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa (which is just across the river from Omaha, Nebraska) from August 26-30. The stop will kick off with a two-day $180 DeepStack $25,000 GTD tournament followed by a $200 Bounty Tournament, with each winner being awarded a $2,000 RunGood VIP Championship Package.
Regarding those packages, RunGood has partnered with Blaycation to coordinate thirty-six total $2,000 VIP packages for the season. Every side-event winner and Main Event final nine will be awarded a package, which includes a travel allowance, hotel stay, a RunGood Championship seat, an exclusive Road to the RunGood Cup hat and backpack, and nightly VIP events.
The stop will culminate with a $100,000 Guaranteed Main Event, which will see the winner take home a custom “Road to the RunGood Cup” Seiko Watch.
The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to capture action from the Main Event, which means players will have the opportunity to use the My Stack app to update their hands and chip counts straight into the live blog.

"PokerNews is excited to once again be the live coverage provider for the RunGood Poker Series," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "With an affordable $675 buy-in, but a big $100,000 guarantee, the Main Event is a great tournament for players of all levels. We look forward to a fun-filled competition with plenty of money to be won."
In addition, on Saturday, August 29th at 10 a.m., RunGood Pro Bernard Lee will host a free tournament seminar.
"The best way to describe the RunGood Poker series is to recall a conversation I had with one of the poker room managers a while back," said Tana Karn, Founder and President of RunGoodGear.com. "They were speaking with a player about upcoming events and was asked 'When does that feel good series come back?'"
Last year, the RunGood Poker Series made headlines when it crushed its $100,000 guarantee in the $675 Main Event at Horseshoe Casino. That tournament attracted 426 entries, created a prize pool of $251,340, and saw Henry Gingerich take home a $39,083 first-place prize plus a $10,000 seat into the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event.
