The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) heads to sunny California for an 11-day live poker tournament festival next month that will be chock-full of mixed games. Specifically, poker players will be greeted with five unique mixed game events at the Graton Resort and Casino. The four-star complex is located just off the Pacific Coast near Santa Rosa and offers a poker tournament atmosphere that is ideal for mid-stakes events.

There will well over a dozen Ring events held between May 2nd-12th at the RGPS Graton tour stop. Moreover, the No Limit Hold’em RunGood Main Event will begin on Friday, May 10th, and boasts a $500,000 guarantee with an $800 buy-in.

The full schedule also includes nightly NLHE tournaments with a low buy-in of only $135, so there will be plenty of action available in between the mixed games events that are spread out over the course of next month’s series.

This will provide an extra incentive for mixed game poker players to compete in as many events as possible and try to etch their name into the history books while obtaining an extra keepsake to prove their mixed game prowess.

Mixed Games Focus Attracts More Casual Players

Due to the fixed limit format of most mixed game tournaments, these events tend to be extremely attractive for recreational poker players.

The atmosphere is generally more laid back during mixed game events since betting rounds are sequenced with raise limits that don’t allow for the “all-in shoves” that are typical in No Limit Hold’em games.

If you’re relatively new to live poker tournaments and are looking to get a lot of play out of one or more $500 buy-ins with an opportunity to win large four-figure top prizes, then the RGPS Mixed Game Championship will be a great fit.

Of course, those who enjoy playing No Limit Texas Hold’em can compete in daily satellite qualifiers for a coveted seat into the 2024 WSOP Main Event to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Exclusive Lodging Rates for 2024 RGPS Players

The Graton Resort & Casino offers exclusive rates for individuals who will be participating in the live tournament series during the month of May, and the Monday-Friday schedule allows for more weekend play in bigger events if you wish to extend your poker vacation.
