The clock is running!

Flight A of the RGPS Showbound Main Event is underway in the Pavilion Event Center at Downstream Casino Resort. The RGPS last visited Downstream in December, where Simon Webster (pictured) overcame a venue-record field of 386--and a strong heads-up battle against RG Ambassador Daniel Lowery--to capture the Main Event trophy and $44,391.

Twelve 30-minute levels are all that stand between the players and a ticket to Day 2 on Sunday. Players begin with 20,000 chips and have an unlimited re-entry option and late registration open until the start of Level 9 (approximately 11:30 pm). A full structure sheet can be found here.
