The “All-Stars Comeback Tour Powered by PokerGO” season continues with three more scheduled stops before the end of September.
The RunGood Poker Series heads to Seminole Coconut Creek Casino from August 23-29 with five ring events on the schedule. The series will then head out west with a return trip to Jamul Casino San Diego from September 7-12 with seven events on the schedule, before making its first-ever appearance at Thunder Valley Casino & Resort from September 23-26 with a three-event schedule.
“We all look forward to our return to Jamul and are excited about being a part of the Thunder Valley Casino Resort roster of special events,” said Hayley Hochstetler, VP of Media of RunGoodGear.com. “Seeing the tour grow to be successful in all parts of the country has been one confidence boost after another as we continue to get back on our feet.”
Each stop will continue to award two $550 seats into the end-of-year RGPS: All-Star ProAm with one seat allocated to the Main Event winner, and the other to the Casino Champion Points winner.
The RGPS: All-Star ProAm is a 64-seat tournament held from inside the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, from December 11-12, 2021. So far 24 seats have been locked up with six seats in the form of celebrity invitations, and 18 seats in the form of tour seat qualifiers.
Survivor’s Robert Mariano and Tyson Apostol, YouTube’s Brad Owen, Twitch streamer Gernader Jake, and 2003 WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker each are among the celebrity invitations, while PokerGO commentator Jeff Platt and poker professional Jamie Kerstetter are two of the tour seat qualifiers.
