Mina Greco & Julie Anna Cornelius Named RunGood Ambassadors for Remaining 2015 Season
The RunGood Poker Series is gearing up for theirNovember 4-8 visit to Downstream Casino where they will host two side events and a $100K GTD Main Event. In anticipation of the stop, the RunGood Team has announced two new ambassadors — Mina Greco and Julie Anna Cornelius — to represent the tour for the remainder of the 2015 season.
The two will join a roster that currently includes Bernard Lee, Bryan Campanello, Lauren Kling, Joe Serock and Justin Gardenhire, among others.
"The RunGood Team and I could not be more thrilled to have these two join us for our 2015 season," Gardenhire said of the two new additions. "Both bring positivity to any table they sit at that is refreshing and very much welcomed in a game filled with highs and lows."
Greco has a little over $175,000 in tournament earnings for 2015, most of which came when she made the TV final table of the inaugural World Poker Tour Choctaw Main Event. Greco ultimately finished in fifth place for a satisfying $167,691 payday.
“I'm a twin and come from a large Italian family," explained Greco, who currently resides in Houston, Texas. "As a kid the family would gather together and play cards, that's where the interest began. I prefer to play poker sporadically rather than on a daily basis; helps relax the mind. During my down time I enjoy the simple life and surround myself around positive people, it keeps me grounded."
As for Cornelius, she is a World Series of Poker Circuit grinder who has won over $85,000 in recorded tournament cashes. Her biggest cash of $16,672 came in the summer of 2014 when she finished fourth in a Rio Daily Deepstack, but more recently she finished 149th in the 2015 WSOP Event #28: $1,500 Monster Stack for $8,155. In addition to playing the game, Cornelius has developed a presence in the poker social media world.
"I worked at the White House, the American Embassy in London, and was also a chef and flight attendant on private planes for six years," said Cornelius, who is also known as the Emoji Queen in the Poker Twitterverse. "All of these life experiences and adventures somehow led me to find my true passion in life, poker.”
