The latest of the RGPS Checkpoint stops, RGPS Harrah's Kansas City will culminate with the $200,000 guaranteed $1,100 buy-in Main Event taking place May 19-21. In addition to that, there will be a handful of other ring events with buy-ins ranging from $200 to $500. PokerNews will be on-site provide live updates of the Main Event action.


Plenty of Ring Events

The upcoming RGPS Checkpoint stop will kick off with three events on May 16, including a $250 Seniors Ring Event and a $200 Series Opener No-Limit Hold'em Ring Event. Later in the evening, a $200 Ambassador Bounty Ring Event will take place and will feature special guests holding bounty envelopes containing prizes.

There will be one ring event the next day on May 17, a $400 DeepStack Ring Event that will have two starting flights and a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool up for grabs. There will also be two $60 Turbo Satellites running where players can win a seat into the DeepStack Ring Event.
