The six-day series will culminate this weekend with a $575 buy-in, $100K GTD Main Event, a tournament the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be covering in full.

Throughout the 2019 RGPS Showbound Season, powered by PokerGO, players have the chance to win invitations to compete in a season-ending invite-only freeroll satellite at Hard Rock Tulsa for a pair of $5,000 Sit & Go seats to be on Poker After Dark in Las Vegas. Packages include an “airfare and hotel” travel stipend (Must be 21 to participate in the freeroll satellite, invitations are non-transferable, limited to one invitation and seat per player.)

To receive an invite, all you need to do is win any RGPS Showbound side event or final table any Main Event. “Showbound Powered by PokerGO” will encourage tournament participants at all tour stops to dress to impress and walk the crimson carpet on their way to the poker table.

This stop marks the third-to-last chance players have to qualify. The penultimate stop will take place April 23-28 at Harrah’s North Kansas City, while the final stop will be April 30-May 5 at Hard Rock Tulsa in Oklahoma.

What to Expect from the RGPS Bossier City

The stop kicks off Tuesday at 7 p.m. CT with the $135 RunGood Pro Bounty. Special guests will be holding bounty envelopes that contain prizes varying between $1,000 cash and RunGood apparel store credit.
