The revamped All-Stars Comeback Tour Powered by PokerGO season took center stage at Horseshoe Council Bluffs in Iowa last week with seven events and two RGPS: All-Star ProAm seats up for grabs.
The series opened with the $125 Seniors event that was won by Leonard Hiner, before Jacob Jobman won the Opening Night Guest Bounty. The two flights of the $185 DeepStack attracted 614 entries as Craig Dick captured the $18,704 first-place prize. The final side events of the series saw Scott Buller win the Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event, Adolfo Chavez won the Two Green Chip Bounty, and Trung Tran won the Turbo Closer.
The record-setting field of 851-entrants in the RunGood Main Event would see an 11-way chop where each player received $26,058 in prize money. Play continued as a winner needed to be crowned, and once the dust settled, it would be Waverly, Iowa, native Freeman Kauffman emerging victorious in his first-ever casino tournament to also be awarded the RGPS: All-Star ProAm seat. The final RGPS: All-Star ProAm seat wouldn’t be decided until the final event when Anthony Kellen folded his way to a fifth-place finish in the Turbo Closer to lock up his seat into the RGPS: All-Star ProAm that is set to be held in the PokerGO Studio in December.
