After three days of cruising and two port of calls, the finale of the Run Good Poker Series Season is ready to kick off with Day 1a.
The winner of this Global Championship event will earn a seat in the World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event and a specially designed Run Good Poker Series chip set.
The event is scheduled in between a cruise that has so far traveled to Mexico and the Cayman Islands. The Day 1a flight will hope to bag and spend their day off tomorrow in Jamaica.
Each player will start with 15,000 chips and can add-on an additional 5,000 chips for $25, bringing the total buy-in to $700. Each Day 1 flight will play 12 30-minute levels and bag at roughly 1:30 p.m. boat time.
Many of the familiar Run Good Poker Series faces will be in the field throughout the week after a few days of fun and cash games.
Lauren and Eric Bunch, Papa Karn and Chris Conrad are going to join the field for sure, but there are likely to be a few more familiar faces trickling in after play begins.
Georgia Napolitano will kick-off the festivities with the National Anthem. She has been singing with the Trans Siberian Orchestra for the past nine years. Her parents, Mark and Tina are part of the team that runs Card Player Cruises. Card Player and Run Good have joined together to host this Global Championship.
