Sibling Rivalry

Tai Phan

The players at Horseshoe Council Bluffs are no stranger to Ryan and Tai Phan. The Omaha area is their home base and Ryan, the elder brother, has been racking up tournament results here and beyond since 2012. The third entry on his Hendon Mob page, in fact, is a fifth-place finish in the RGPS Council Bluffs Main Event for $12,441.

In the past year or so, however, younger brother Tai has been showing equal aptitude, and skill, on the felt. Oh, and let us not forget results. In a year of tournament competition, Tai Phan has racked up $34,397 in prize money, including three cashes at RGPS events and two final tables for a combined haul of $21,616 from RunGood events alone.

By comparison, Ryan has $1,495,369 in lifetime tournament winnings; but how about just RunGood events? There, the numbers are fairly even. Ryan has cashed in five RGPS events for a combined $23,622.

Both brothers are in competition in Flight C and no doubt are playing for something better than cash--bragging rights.
