The RunGood Poker Series main event at the Downstream Casino drew 383 total entries and a prizepool of almost $200,000. The action started Friday at 7 p.m. and continued with two more starting flights on Saturday.

Jared Ward is the overall chip leader and will lead the 70 players with 368,000 into Day 2 Sunday at noon.

Several of the RGPS regulars came through Downstream Casino throughout the weekend, including the defending main event champion Greg Jennings. He was eliminated in the final two hours of play on Day 1c.

Sam Washburn, the current leader of the casino champion race, was also eliminated late in Day 1c. He has set himself up with a good lead, but Jacob Seale is certainly within striking distance and has a formidable stack heading into Day 2.

The top 45 players in the main event will make at least a min-cash of $1,053.

There were some heavy hitters that came out for the main event that didn't find a bag for Day 2. Most notably, Dan Lowery. Jennings, Lowery, Jon Bennett, Washburn, Jeff Tebben, Shaun Roberts, and Norm Glueckert all fell short.

The field is still stacked and will certainly make for a fun Sunday. PokerNews.com will be here throughout the weekend as the RGPS Downstream comes to a close and the newest All-Stars season main event champion is crowned.
