Wadih Kaawar and Clyde Lorance Are Showbound

Brentharrington • Level 14: 2,000-3,000, 3,000 ante

The final two players in the Showbound Satellite are Clyde Lorance, who eliminated Kyle Kinder to burst the bubble, and Wadih Kaawar. The two win a $5,000 sit-n-go seat on Poker After Dark to be filmed at the PokerGO studio in Las Vegas.

Lorance is a real estate developer from Springfield, MO who is turning 70 in September. He says he watches a lot of Poker After Dark with his wife Carol.

He's been married to Carol for 47 years and the couple have had two children. He also has four grandkids.

He said he wanted to play against "the best," when asked who he'd like to face.

Lorance served in the Marines during Vietnam and was shot by an AK-47 on October 12, 1969.

"I spent several months in the hospital and I've been thankful ever since that I survived."

Lorance qualified for the Showbound satellite thanks to a ninth-place finish in the RGPS Downstream main event. The same event which Kinder won for his first and only tournament cash.

Kaawar was working in hotel management in San Diego before he transitioned to full-time poker around the poker boom. He's currently living in Arlington, TX.

Kaawar was more sad for Kinder bubbling the satellite than he was making it onto Poker After Dark. As a professional, he's excited for the chance to freeroll a $5,000 sit-n-go.

That is a wrap for the Showbound Season of the Run Good Poker Series. Best of luck to Wadih and Clyde on Poker After Dark and a huge thank you to Poker Central and PokerGO for such an amazing partnership. See you next season!

Marty Kinder on the Rail

Brentharrington • Level 13: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante

"I hope Kyle wins," Marty Kinder said.

He drove from Imperial, MO to play the main event with his son and possibly see his son win a spot on Poker After Dark.

Kyle was the early chip leader, but he has moved into second place since the final table play began.

Kyle won the RGPS Downstream Main Event for his first recorded tournament cash. Now he's one elimination from playing on Poker After Dark.

Between the two, the RGPS Main Event win is the only recorded tournament cash.
