The latest stop on the 2021 schedule for the RunGood Poker Tour pushes forward to the Main Event today! San Diego's Jamul Casino hosts the $575 Main Event, with Day 1a action beginning at 7 p.m. local time tonight.

The Main Event guarantees $100,000, and today's phase plays as the first of three Day 1 flights. Players in the San Diego area can take advantage of unlimited re-entry through the start of Level 9 in any of three starting flights. Day 1b kicks off at noon local time Saturday, with Day 1c beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Jamul Casino series takes place as the latest chapter of the 2021 All Stars Comeback Tour powered by PokerGO. The eventual winner not only wins the champion's share of the tournament prize pool, but also wins a $550 seat to the RGPS All Stars Pro-Am at PokerGO Studio in December.

All players start with 20,000 tournament chips, with Level 1 beginning with the blinds at 100/100. A big blind ante kicks in on Level 2.

All Day 1 flights play through 12 half-hour levels, and surviving players from the trio of starting phases will reconvene as a combined field for Day 2 on Sunday, Sept. 12. Day 2 begins at noon, and the levels increase to 45 minutes until a champion is determined.

Main Event players can look forward to the usual festive atmosphere and cast of characters that define RunGood Poker Series events. Already spotted at Jamul Casino earlier in the week were players like Johnnie "Vibes" Moreno, Brian "The Golden Blazer" Frenzel, David Tuchman, "Boston" Rob Mariano, and many other familiar faces.

This week's festival marks the second time Jamul Casino has hosted an RGPS event in 2021. In June, the $575 Main Event saw 559 entries push the final prize pool to $279,500.

That tournament ended in a rare nine-way deal at the final table, with Armando Mesina taking home the official win and the seat to the 64-player All Stars Pro-Am.
