Congratulations to RG Pro Bounty tournament winner Vonda Richardson!

The RunGood Poker Series returns to its hometown of Tulsa this week at the Hard Rock Casino for another five-day run of poker, guarantees, and giveaways. All week, in addition to our tournament series, each event features a special giveaway raffle to players registered in each event. Among the items being given away are Yeti coolers, Yeti tumblers, a Sony PlayStation 4, a Microsoft Xbox One, Rustic Cuff Triple Stacks, and three Samsung Curve 65" 4K televisions.  This is in addition to having three events with prize pool guarantees of $10K, $25K, and $100K!

Our first event of the series was the $135 RunGood Pro Bounty Tuesday night. By the time registration closed, the event drew 179 entries creating a prize pool of $18,795.  Eighteen places would be paid, with $5,073 going to first, but making it into the money wasn't the only way to go home a winner. Ten pros were in the field, each with an envelope holding random prizes ranging from RunGood Gear to $1,000 cash!

The item up for raffle during the Pro Bounty tournament was a Custom Yeti Roadie 20 Cooler with two Rambler Colsters. Players must be present to win, and if the player called doesn't claim the prize, another name will be drawn until a winner is found. Tuesday night there was no delay, however, as the prize was claimed mere seconds after Andy Cruz's (pictured, left) name was called. Congratulations to Andy and thank you to all the players who came out for the event!

 

 

Eventual event winner Vonda Richardson knocked out a RG pro early in the tournament and received a RG Cadet Hoodie, which she wore to victory. We often joke that every RunGood purchase comes with a championship win, but Vonda took it to heart. Holding the majority of the chips with three players left, Vonda and her fellow players agreed to a three-way chop to end the evening with a payday of $3,383 and the RunGood medallion. The full photo album for the event can be found on the RunGoodGear.com Facebook page, available here.

Wednesday's action will only intensify as we kick off the $180 Deepstack tournament, which sports a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool. Two flights are scheduled for the day, Flight A at noon and Flight B at 7 p.m.  The players who remain at the end of their respective Day 1's will return Thursday at noon to play down to a winner.  The item up for raffle in the Deepstack is a PlayStation 4 for Flight A and an Xbox One for Flight B.

Join us at the Hard Rock Tulsa for all the action!
