Poker players in Cleveland will have some major action to look forward to in November.
The RunGood Poker Series is coming to Jack Cleveland Casino from Nov. 2-12. The nine-tournament RGPS Road Trip Series in Cleveland highlights the Ohio poker schedule in November.
Unfortunately, online poker in Ohio isn’t legal yet — at least with real money. As a result, the six-figure guaranteed prize pools are only available to Buckeye State poker players when these mid-major stops come to town.
“We’re excited to be back at Jack Casino with RunGood Poker events! With nine scheduled ring events, $700,000 in guaranteed prize pools, and the debut of the RunGood Pot Limit Omaha Championship, we’re anticipating a huge tour stop,” said RunGood CEO Tana Karn.
The schedule features satellites to those nine tournaments. The winner of the scheduled event will receive an exclusive RunGood Ring.

The series’ main event will run Nov. 9-12. The $1,000 buy-in comes with a $400,000 guaranteed prize pool. It features multiple starting flights for Day 1, and players can pick from three Day 1s. The survivors of those flights will combine to restart on Nov. 12.
The fan-favorite Ambassador Bounty event is also coming back. This $250 buy-in includes guest bounties that are worth mystery prizes. Players who knock out a RunGood Ambassador will receive an envelope. Inside, players can obtain RunGood apparel or even Main Event free seats worth up to $1350. The tournament also comes with a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool.

If the Main Event series seems a little costly, players will have a chance to earn a seat via satellites as well. The winners of these events will be placed directly into the live main event. Main Event satellites will cost as little as $130. Satellites are a great chance for players to enter big events without putting their whole bankroll on the line. Satellites will also be available for the series opener and PLO Championship.
The complete satellite schedule is as follows:
- Series Opener (three seats guaranteed)
- $65 | 11:15 a.m. | Thu, Nov. 2

According to the PokerGo site, for 2023, the PGT Championship features a $1,000,000 prize pool with a $500,000 first-place prize. The PGT puts up the prize pool to create a total freeroll for the players.
Entry is open to the top 40 players as ranked by the PGT leaderboard at the end of the season, as well as a select group of Dream Seat winners. Dream Seats will be awarded via special events and promotions throughout the year and will grant players exclusive entry to compete in the 2023 PGT Championship.
RunGood is a tournament series that is built with the players in mind. All these extra bonuses make the RunGood Series a must-attend for Ohio poker players. The series promises other giveaways as well.
“We have been awarded the Best Mid-Major Poker Tour title three times at the Global Poker Awards. Not a brag but a statement on how much we care,” Karn said in a press release. “We’ll be giving out tour shirts, added-on prizes, free-to-download player photos, awarding rings, and hosting season-long tour promotions.”
