The revamped All-Stars Comeback Tour Powered by PokerGO season took center stage at Jamul Casino in San Diego last week with seven events and two RGPS: All-Star ProAm seats up for grabs.
The series kicked off with two impressive fields in the $135 Bounty and $185 Deepstack before all attention was turned to the $575 RunGood Main Event that attracted a 559-entrant field and created a $279,000 prize pool. A rare nine-player deal was agreed upon at the final table, while it would be Armando Mesina emerging victorious to claim the additional $5,000 in prize money set aside for the winner, and the RGPS: All-Star ProAm seat. The final RGPS: All-Star ProAM seat would be awarded to the Casino Champion, and after a little bit of controversy with the points calculation, eventually Farid Karimi would claim the honor and also lock up his RGPS: All-Star ProAm seat.
The season-ending RGPS: All-Star ProAm will be held in the PokerGO Studio in December. Qualifiers into the RGPS: All-Star ProAm includes Jamie Kerstetter and Jeff Platt, along with invited celebrities Chris Moneymaker, Brad Owen, and Survivor winners Robert Mariano and Tyson Apostol.
