The 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is coming to a close and a lot of poker players are looking to take a break from the felt as they have been grinding for close to a month and a half at the most popular poker tournament in the world. However, the poker action in America will not stop with the closing of the WSOP as the RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) recently announced its six stops for 2018.
The RunGood Poker Series is looking to differentiate itself from other poker tours out there by coming up with a unique theme for its six stops. The 2018 season will feature an Old West theme where players are encouraged to show up with their cowboy hats and boots.
Tournament organizers have made it clear that players are allowed to dress in what they feel is most comfortable but the Old West theme will be encouraged. The organizers have prepared “Championship Belt Buckles” that were specially customized for the event.
The six stops will also feature the big blind ante format for all non-satellite tournaments. Top poker tournaments around the world have adopted the big blind ante format in recent times which has turned out to be popular with most players as it allows them to play more hands in less time. RunGood Poker Series will also adopt the big blind ante format in order to provide players with tournament formats that are exciting and popular with the big brands.
