Two-time Global Poker Award “Best Mid-Major Tour” recipient, The RunGood Poker Series, is proud to announce that the tour will be returning to Thunder Valley Casino and Resort this July for a three week-long action packed series of events.

The schedule is slated with seventeen ring events highlighted by an impressive lineup of marquee weekend multi-flight tournaments. The $500,000 GTD Hendon Mob Mid-Major Championship will make its debut during the RunGood Poker Series stop making it one of the most anticipated poker events of the year. 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 Tana Karn, Founder and President of RunGood. "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."

With buy-ins of all levels, player-friendly structures, and a fun and welcoming atmosphere, the RunGood Poker Series defines the Best Mid-Major Tour award. Players are encouraged to start booking their hotel rooms using code 230705RG.

"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,” said Eric Danis, President of GPI/The Hendon Mob.

The dream doesn't end in July however as all 2023 RunGood Poker Series ring event winners will be invited to return to Thunder Valley Casino in November for the Dream Seat Invitational sponsored by PokerGO. Invitees will 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. The seat gives players not only a shot at playing in the PokerGO Studio but a share of a million dollar prizepool. Last year’s PGT Championship freeroll had 40 total qualifiers.

“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.
