“Ever since I first traveled to the ‘Big Easy’ in 2008, New Orleans has always ranked high on my list of destinations for a poker event," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "It’s vibrant, cultured, jazzy, and historical, and we all know how much the city likes to party. Combine all of that with a fun, competitive poker tournament such as the RunGood Cup Championship and we’re talking about a spicy recipe for success that could rival some of the best Cajun cuisine the area has to offer. And trust me, you’re definitely going to want to get out and taste the town. If you’re looking for an affordable way to close out the poker year with a bang, this is the stop.”
The tournament is open to the public and will feature Flight A starting Thursday, December 10th at 12:00 p.m., which will be followed by Flights B and C at the same time on Friday and Saturday respectively.
