The inaugural flight of the RunGood Poker Series All Stars Comeback Tour Seminole Coconut Creek $600 Main Event was a bustling affair, as 205 entrants came to the Florida felt, more than doubling the $50,000 guarantee with another flight still to go on Saturday. Just 29 players managed to put chips into a bag, and leading the way is none other than Event #1: $250 Super Stack No Limit Hold'em champ David Albertson, who bagged 406,000 chips after going on a tear late in the day.

Albertson, who earned a $13,585 payday for his heads-up chop in Event #1 with Lisa Teebagy, started his surge in Level 10, cracking Big Slick with ace-five to jump up the counts. Right before Level 13 began, Albertson made quad fours and got paid in full by a player with pocket jacks to send him near the top of the counts, and a few more nice sized pots near the end of the day ensured Albertson's quest for a second RunGood Poker Series Ring, as well as a potential seat in the All Stars Pro Am powered by PokerGo.

Others who managed to bag chips include Walter Bravo (236,000), Joel Weisberger (234,000), Eric Landau (206,000), and Mark Hodge (90,000). Meanwhile, RunGood All Stars Cash Game participants Jamie Kerstetter, Ray Henson and Justin Gardenhire were all unable to find a bag, and will have one more chance to advance tomorrow in Day 1b.

Day 1b kicks off tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST, with registration opening in the poker room at 8 a.m. EST for what is sure to be a jam-packed flight. All players who manage to bag in tomorrow's flight will join the 29 players from Day 1a in Day 2 action at 11 a.m. EST on Sunday, August 29th to play down to a winner.

PokerNews will be on hand all tournament long to provide live updates and chip counts, so be sure to tune in tomorrow as we come one step closer to crowning the first RunGood Poker Series champ at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek!
