Two full starting flights played to their conclusion Saturday inside the Horseshoe Casino Tunica for the 2023 RunGood Poker Series Tunica $600 Main Event. Day 1b started at 11 a.m. and drew 237 entries and Day 1c’s 6 p.m. start added another 214 to that tally, bringing the grand total to 601 entries for the tournament.

Coming into the day, Jon Swift (389,000) was the one to catch, and a good amount of players did so with Mike Chilton bagging 773,000 at the close of Day 1b. However, Day 1c chip leader Brodie Harris totally eclipsed that number, finishing play with a staggering 1,014,000 after scooping a huge pot to bust Chris Moneymaker.

In total, 30 players advanced from the first flight and another 27 made it through later in the evening.
A perfect 12.5% of all three flights made it through their respective days, meaning 76 players from the 601 total entries will return for Sunday's Day 2 at 11 a.m. local time to play down to a winner. Other notables on that list include BJ McBrayer (397,000), Drew Gonzalez (190,000), and former RGPS champs Denise Pratt (228,000) and Max Le (234,000).

A few names that came close to bagging but were not fortunate to do so included RunGood Ambassador ] and Bart Bogard, as well as Anthony Burns and Scott Brandau, who exited on the stone bubble of Day 1c. 2003 WSOP Main Event Champ Chris Moneymaker also made a deep run in Day 1c but fell just a few places short of the money.

PokerNews will be back at it again tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. to take you through to the finish line, so be sure not to miss it!
