The latest stop of the RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) “Showbound” season is happening now at Downstream Casino and Resort in Joplin, Missouri, and this weekend the PokerNews live reporting crew will be on hand to capture all the action from the $575 buy-in, $100K GTD Main Event.

Located less than three hours from Kansas City, Downstream’s Pavilion Event Center is playing host to a series of side events and satellites leading up to the Showbound Main Event.

Throughout the 2019 RGPS Showbound Season, powered by PokerGO, players have the chance to win invitations to compete in a season-ending invite-only freeroll satellite at Hard Rock Tulsa for a pair of $5,000 Sit & Go seats to be on Poker After Dark in Las Vegas. Packages include an “airfare and hotel” travel stipend (Must be 21 to participate in the freeroll satellite, invitations are non-transferable, limited to one invitation and seat per player.)

To receive an invite, all you need to do is win any RGPS Showbound side event or final able any Main Event. “Showbound Powered by PokerGO” will encourage tournament participants at all tour stops to dress to impress and walk the crimson carpet on their way to the poker table.

Several players received invitations in the RGPS Council Bluffs stop earlier this month. It was there that Nick Burris, AKA Re-Burris because of his home game rebuy record, came out on top of a 399-entry field to win a $44,767 first-place prize. Others to cash that stop’s Main were MSPT champ Travis Gant (2nd – $27,664), Blair Hinkle (11th – $3,427), and Julie Cornelius (30th – $1,274), just to name a few.
