(Bossier City, LA)-Horseshoe Bossier City partnering with Run Good Events, is thrilled to present an exciting and new poker event in Bossier City, Louisiana. The first ever Southern Poker Open will be played in the Riverdome, August 8-11, 2019. The Main Event is a $420 buy-in with a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. Over the course of four days the Southern Poker Open will include $100 Buy-in Mega and Turbo satellites, five Main Event flights and a $160 Buy-in Tag Team Poker Tournament. With tournament entrants expected to be 800 plus, the Riverdome will be equipped with 28 tournament tables and include a Main Stage Final Table.

“We are excited to build on the resurgence of poker in our area. The Southern Poker Open will be a unique poker experience for all players”. –says Horseshoe Poker Operations Manager, Chad Disante.

The Southern Poker Open will usher in a new age of gaming at Horseshoe Bossier City. It will be the first time a Poker Tournament has been played at Horseshoe on the landside of property as hundreds of poker enthusiasts, pros, and weekend warriors descend on the Riverdome for the event. 2013 was the last time a tournament of this caliber was played at Horseshoe when the World Series of Poker Circuit Tour stopped for an event held on the rooftop of the King of the Red. The Run Good Poker Series has hosted several successful events in the Poker Room, most recently in March when RGPS Showbound took over with a $100,000 guaranteed prize and a once-in-alifetime chance to play on Poker After Dark.

“We’re ecstatic to see Horseshoe Bossier City take giant steps forward in growing the game of poker. The move into the Riverdome marks a huge milestone for Louisiana poker. The move will benefit players in various ways that include more room, less wait times to play, and bigger events.” – says Founder and President of RunGood, Tana Karn.
