RunGood has rolled out the schedule for the first stop in its End of Summer series, at Horseshoe Council Bluffs, and it features the first ever $1,100 Main Event in the tour's history.
As usual, the Main Event will carry a $100,000 guarantee, though the buy-in has been upped from the usual $675. The structure has been correspondingly slowed down with 40-minute levels throughout Day 1 rather than the usual 30-minute levels. The starting stack will be 20,000 and there will still be unlimited reentry for the first nine levels. Check out the full structure here.
Things get underway in the Main Event at noon on Friday, Aug. 19. The slower structured starting flights mean there will only be two starting days rather than three, with Saturday also hosting a noon start.
PokerNews will provide live coverage throughout the Main Event, which is sure to have the usual fun cast of sponsored RunGood Pros in attendance. Past winners of RunGood Horseshoe Council Bluffs include Henry Gingerich, Brandon Fish, and Chris Wicks, who topped a field of 209 for a payday of $31,443 this May.
RunGood also has a number of other offerings on tap for the stop, starting Wednesday. Those include a $150 Thousandaire survivor event, a $200 six-max with $10,000 guaranteed, and, a last chance shootout Sunday afternoon, in addition to satellites with seats guaranteed. Many of the tournaments have added prizes. See the full slate of events here.
Future events on the End of Summer schedule will take place at Hard Rock Tulsa and Harrah's North Kansas City, taking place in the coming weeks.
