Two more starting flights kick off today here at the RG Horseshoe in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The $575 buy-in event features a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool and three starting flights. Day 1A is in the book with 74-year-old Omaha attorney Tim McReynolds leading that field and returning for Sunday's Day 2.
Flight 1B gets underway at noon today and Flight 1C begins at 7 p.m. Players will play 12 levels and those remaining will all come back tomorrow. Players will have one last shot to satellite into the Main Event, with a turbo satellite beginning Saturday at 4 p.m.
A champion will be crowned on Sunday with the winner not only taking home some big money, but also some cool 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.
This marks the eighth time the tour has been to the Horseshoe, and Flight 1A attracted 118 entries and tournament staff are hoping for even more during Saturday's flight. Stay here at the RunGood blog for all the big hands and unique personalities in the field.
