St. Louis Set to Host RunGood Poker Series

The RunGood Poker Series has been keeping busy throughout the early part of the year, and it’s going to return to a popular stop later this month. This series is going to make a stop in St. Louis later this month, and this will be the second straight year that this is a stop. 

This stop on the tour is going to kickoff on April 26th, and all of that action will wrap up on May 5, 2024. There will actually be some action still going on in Reno and Council Bluffs through April 28th, and players are going to have to decide where to play. 

The Hollywood Casino in St. Louis is going to host this stop on the series, and that property sits right on the banks of the Mississippi River. There will be some satellite events that are available as a part of this stop, but there will also be 28 events that can be played at the Hollywood Casino as well. 

A Look at the Schedule

The first three days of this event are going to feature satellite events and that should allow more players to get involved. Seniors are going to get the first crack at competing in this event, as there is a $250 buy-in available for those who are at least 50 years of age. 

There will be two other smaller events that begin on the first day, and both of those tournaments will have buy-ins of $300 or less. Those satellite events are a great way to kick things off, but then there will be at least two ring events every single day. 

Rings are the top prize handed out on the RunGood Poker Series, but the best players will be looking to cash in as well. The RGPS St. Louis $800 Main Event will be one of the key highlights in this series, and it should attract plenty of players. 

Not only will there be a Main Event taking place at this stop, but there will also be a $50,000 Deepstack Event that is sure to attract a large number of entries. Most of the buy-ins for this event are small, and that is intentional to try to increase the number of participants. 

Last year was a massive success and the RunGood Poker Series is hoping for similar results this year. 

A Look Back

Keith Heine was the best player at this stop a year ago as the St. Louis native walked away with $88,504 throughout the event. Shaun Emery was the only other player to win at least $50,000 as the prize pool was pretty well split up. 

There was a prize pool of nearly $500,000 handed out a year ago, and that number is set to increase this year. Even though this event will mostly attract local poker players, there will still be some big names that make the trip to the Hollywood Casino to get in on the action.
