Although poker rooms in Las Vegas returned to poker tournaments with full force, this may not be the case for Mississippi. RunGood Poker announced on Monday the cancellation of its 2021 planned event at Horseshoe Tunica in Robinsonville, Mississippi. In a statement, the operator explained that the cancelation was the result of a staff shortage for the event.

The RG Poker Series event was planned to start on July 6 and run through July 11. However, considering that there was insufficient staff to “produce a Best Mid-Major experience for players and fans of the tour,” RunGood Poker decided to cancel the event instead of changing the location or rescheduling it.
