The RunGood Poker Series is returning in Spring 2018 with a brand new theme. This will be the 8th tour for the RunGood Poker series and this time around RunGood has decided to partner with military-focused charity Operation Gratitude and will host six tour stops starting from February 6.
The RunGood Poker Series will be kick-off in the US at the Hard Rock Tulsa in Oklahoma from February 6 to 11, before heading to Horseshoe Council Bluffs in Iowa on February 20 to 25.
The tour will then head to Horseshoe Bossier City in Louisiana from March 6 to 11 before stopping at Horseshoe Tunica in Mississippi on April 3 to 8. Its fifth stop will be at Downstream in Joplin, Missouri from April 10 to 15 and the final stop will take place at Harrah's North Kansas City from May 1 to 16.
Every season, RunGood Poker sets a theme for its tournament to shake things up a bit for the players. During the 2017 Spring series, tournament organizers teamed up with Knock Out Watches to bring the RGPS Spring Brawl, a knock-out themed tournament where players battled it out for custom boxing gloves, Knock Out watch prizes, the RGPS Spring Brawl belt and prize money ofcourse. During the 2017 Fall series, RunGood partnered with CardPlayer Cruises to host an open water cruise-themed tournament aboard the Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas cruise ship.
In a statement, Tana Karn, founder of RunGood said
Every season we like to build a new theme. Whether it's a season about boxing belts or an end-of- year trip, the underlying focus is to always give back an experience. This time, we're focused on providing the experience of giving
RunGood has partnered with Operation Gratitude, a charity organization that assembles and delivers custom care packages for service members of the US military. RunGood has already worked with Operation Gratitude in 2017 when the two organizations joined forces to send help to those hit by Hurricane Harvey. RunGood’s clothing line RunGoodGear held a week-long charity affair in August 2017 where all of the proceeds from their clothing line sales went to the disaster relief efforts.
At the 2018 RunGood Poker Spring Series, players will have the opportunity to contribute to the efforts of Operation Gratitude. Limited edition RUNGOOD USA hats and RUNGOOD care kits will be awarded to players who can personalize the items before they join the care packages that will be shipped at the end of the season.
