The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) just completed its stop at San Diego’s Jamul Casino, and next weekend will hold two events simultaneously on opposite ends of the county in Horseshoe Tunica and Graton Casino in the Bay Area (PokerNews will be at both to offer live updates).
If that wasn’t enough, the two-time Global Poker Award winner for “Best Mid-Major Tour”, has announced that the tour will return to California’s Thunder Valley Casino and Resort in July to close out its “Checkpoint” season.
That stop will be a three-week-long affair action-packed with seventeen ring events. That includes the $500,000 GTD Hendon Mob Mid-Major Championship, which will make its US debut during the stop.
Other highlights on the schedule include Thunder Valley’s $250,000 GTD Monolith on opening weekend and the series finishing with the $1,000,000 GTD RunGood Checkpoint Main Event.
“We’re thrilled to bring the RunGood Poker Series back to Thunder Valley Casino and Resort,” said RGPS President Tana Karn, who is nominated for Industry Person of the Year at the Global Poker Awards. “With an incredible lineup of tournaments and newly minted partnership with GPI and THM, this year’s series is set to be one of the most exciting yet.”

Eric Danis, President of GPI/The Hendon Mob, added: “We’re honored to join forces with the RunGood Poker Series and Thunder Valley to bring you this tremendous event. This is the first time a THM-branded event has been announced for North America; we’ve enjoyed tons of success with The Hendon Mob Championship events internationally and we’re thrilled that our maiden voyage in North America is with such great partners like RunGood and Thunder Valley. We can’t wait to see all of you join us for this historic moment.”
Anyone who wins a ring at the stop will be invited to return to Thunder Valley Casino in November for the “Dream Seat Invitational” sponsored by PokerGO. It’s there that invitees have the chance to buy-in to the private NLH event where the top prize awards an added-on seat to the PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll.
“We are elated to be part of this incredible series with RunGood and GPI. The Hendon Mob Mid-Major Championship is an amazing addition to the festival and we are beyond excited to see all of the events play out here at Thunder Valley Casino Resort,” said Ben Erwin, Poker Director at Thunder Valley Casino Resort.
