SAN DIEGO, CA. (August 3, 2021) -- The newly revamped “All-Stars Comeback Tour Powered by PokerGO” season will be heading back out West this September for a return trip to Jamul Casino in San Diego, CA and a first ever appearance at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, CA. Both are set to have PokerNews.com on-site reporting the Main Event action.
The Jamul Casino stop in early June saw record breaking property numbers that featured a 558 player Main Event field. The constructive criticism on wait times and alternate lists was heard and answered by the addition of more tournament tables for the upcoming return event scheduled on September 7th – 12th. The San Diego Card Sharks logo will be filling the room up once again as the tour plans on bringing more giveaway items to promote the All-Stars ProAm event at the PokerGO Studio in December.
Fan favorite events like the $135 Guest Bounty and $185 DeepStack ring events will return alongside the Seniors Ring Event moved from Sunday to Tuesday. The property will be catering a casual “Welcome Back Party” at Loft 94 which will begin at 5:30PM, September 7th. The get together will be a chance for players to take home more San Diego Card Sharks giveaway items.
One week later, the tour will travel up to Lincoln, CA for an inaugural stop at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort Poker Room September 23rd – 26th. The four-day event will feature three tournaments with the $575 Golden Ticket Ring Event and $300 Last Chance KO event each awarding a seat to the All-Stars ProAm. The room will be celebrating its own moniker opening day as the newly minted NorCal Card Kings will see its debut on t-shirts and hats to be handed out during the series. A $200,000 GTD prize pool headlines the Golden Ticket Ring Event making the stop not one to miss.
For those learning about the All-Stars ProAm event, it is a 64-player capped event in December streamed from inside the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Part of the field will qualify through the tour, while the remaining spots will be filled by invitees of PokerGO and RunGood that include poker professionals, industry personalities, and celebrities.
The 2021 tour schedule is still in flux as it continues to add more dates as the filmed event approaches.
“We all look forward to our return to Jamul and are excited about being a part of the Thunder Valley Casino Resort roster of special events. Seeing the tour grow to be successful in all parts of the country has been one confidence boost after another as we continue to get back on our feet,” says Hayley Hochstetler, VP of Media of RunGoodGear.com.
Detailed schedules for each stop currently under contract will become available online shortly. Players can look forward to the delivery of a big stage feel for an affordable buy-in once again.
