After two successful stops during the 2022 season, RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) is back in Iowa from April 20-30 for RGPS Council Bluffs at Horseshoe Council Bluffs, which is located in Iowa just across the river from Omaha, Nebraska.
The latest stop on the RGPS 2023 Checkpoint series will feature 20 ring events spread across 11 days of poker action, with the flagship $700 Main Event kicking off on Friday, April 28 with three opening flights and a $100,000 guarantee.
Meanwhile, several side events will be on offer with opportunities to pick up an RGPS ring in a number of different variants, including Omaha 8, H.O.R.S.E., and Pot-Limit Omaha.
11 Days of Poker
The action kicks off with three events on Tuesday, April 11, including the $250 Series Warm-Up ring event and the $125 RunGood Bankroll Builder. The opening day will also feature the first flight of the RGPS Kickoff ring event. The series opener will offer five opening flights over the first three days, and the surviving players will meet on Sunday April 23 for the Day 2 restart.
Other events throughout the series include the $200 Tag Team double ring event on Monday, April 24 and a one-day High Roller ring event to close out the series on Sunday, April 30 with a $1,100 buy-in.
The $700 Main Event will kick off on April 28 with the first flight, while Days 1b and 1c will follow on Saturday, April 29. The surviving players will meet for Day 2 on that following Sunday to play for their share of the guaranteed $100,000 prize pool.
RGPS returns to Iowa for the first time since October when Derrick Plumage completed a victory in his second RGPS Council Bluffs Main Event in a row. Plumage defeated Mark Homan in heads-up play to take the top prize of $56,931 from an event that drew 576 entries. Keith Jeffrey, Loren Hackman, and Mo Nuwwarah rounded out the top five finishers.
