Through two flights of the inaugural RunGood Cup Championship, 231 players turned up for the $100,000 guaranteed tournament. A massive Day 1c turnout of 172 showed up at Harrah's New Orleans to push the prize pool past the $230,000 mark, and local player Russell Sartin finished with the most chips when he bagged 210,000.

A total of 34 players made it through the flight. Others who bagged big stacks were My Nguyen (196,000), Clinton Morgan (193,000), and James Hall (184,000). Andrew Bulliard (156,000), Lou Barlow (129,000), Andrew Brock (106,000), Jeff Bryan (98,500), and RunGood Pro Jonathan Gaviao (23,000) also survived.

Gaviao looked like he was going to bag a nice stack after taking a 92,000 pot in Level 11 (1,000/2,000/300) when his {k-}{k-} cracked the {a-}{a-} of Megan Thomson, but he said he ran into a rut late when he got queens in on an eight-high flop against a player holding {j-}{8-} who proceeded to run out a full house.

A number of notable players fired on Day 1c but failed to make it through, including RunGood Pros Michael Sanders, Ross Bybee, Bernard Lee, Ben Reason, Duma Lowery, Mina Greco, and Dan "Wretchy" Martin.

Wretch had a rather wretched run late, first getting {a-}{k-} in three ways against {j-}{j-} and {k-}{j-} and losing to a one-outer after a {k-}{k-}{5-} flop. Then, he got his remaining chips in with {k-}{k-} only to see a player with {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} run a flush.

A total of 81 players will be returning Sunday for Day 2, which kicks off at noon.

mnuwwarah • Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

During the last level, Dan Martin busted out after another nasty beat when his {k-}{k-} was run down by a player with {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} who ran a flush. Megan Thomson also busted out.

Martin's fellow RunGood Pro, Bernard Lee, is short after shoving from the cutoff with {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and having the player on the button wake up with queens.

Bulliard Doubles on River

mnuwwarah • Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

We found Andrew Bulliard pushing all in for 66,600 preflop, and his opponent sighed, looked at his cards, and put his stack in as well.

Bulliard: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The dealer put {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} on the felt, but Bulliard was saved by the {a-Spades} on the river.

"M***********," the player who had tens exclaimed. "F***."
