The last stop of the second edition of the RunGoodGear.com Poker Series will be at Missouri’s Downstream Casino from October 1 to October 15 this year. Last March, it was Bernard Lee who beat a field of 334 players and won the main event.
Before arriving at Missouri, the tour will stop at Oklahoma’s Hard Rock Casino. The Oklahoma leg of the event will be held from Sept 3 to Sept 7 and will include a main event with a buy-in of $675 and a guaranteed prize pool worth $100,000. PokerNews will cover the event live right from its Oklahoma stop.
Prominent poker players such as Bernard Lee, Ryan Tepen and Chris Conrad, both winners of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit rings, Amanda Baker, and Huy Nguyen, a native of Oklahoma will take part in the Missouri leg of the event. Nguyen said: “Excited to be representing RunGoodGear at an amazing venue. Great casino, great action, and always a ton of fun.”

A lucky prize draw will also be held on the event and exciting prizes such as Nee Spa vouchers worth $100 and Red Oak Steakhouse vouchers worth $100 will be distributed among the lucky winners. After this event, the first event of the series, a $125 buy-in RunGoodGear.com Pro Bounty tournament, will be played at 7:00 p.m.
