Players, dealers, and staff are all ready and the cards will soon be in the air for the first flight in the RG Horseshoe Council Bluffs here in Iowa. The $575 buy-in event features a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool and three starting flights. This marks the eighth time the tour has been to the Horseshoe and many players are ready to get in on the fun.
Flight B begins at noon on Saturday, with Flight C following that at 7 p.m. Players will also still have one shot to satellite into the Main Event, with a turbo satellite getting underway on Saturday at 4 p.m.
A champion will then be crowned on Sunday with the winner not only taking home a hefty stack of cash, but also some slick cowboy boots and a custom-made Championship Belt Buckle.
Three winners have already claimed boots and buckles since play began on Tuesday in the $135 Pro Bounty, the $180 DeepStack $20,000 Guaranteed, and the $165 NLH One-Day $10,000 Guaranteed.
Council Bluffs-Omaha makes for a great location for the RGPS Old West theme this season, and the Horseshoe offers a great stay, good gambles, and great poker. The delicious steaks and chops over at Jack Binion's Steak House also make for a nice night out with friends.
