The historic first-ever $1,000,000 guaranteed RunGood Season Finale crowns a champion Tuesday here in Northern California, and while just 32 of the original 417 total entries are returning for a chance at the title, one stands well above the other 31.

With a stack of 1,890,000, Sacramento’s Toan Nguyen takes more chips than the second and third-place players combined into Day 3 after an incredible run late in the day Monday. Those competing stacks belong to Charisse Case (935,000), and Michael Loncar (840,000).

Also in contention near the top of the chip counts, but still well behind Nguyen are two-time WPT champion and Day 1b chip leader Cornel Cimpan (775,000), and Day 1a chip leader Lane Jacobson (644,000).

A trio of RunGood Ambassadors are also still in the mix with Tyler Patterson (570,000), Ray Henson (455,000), and Ben Ludlow (260,000) all looking to make a move Tuesday.
