David Albertson, RunGood Event 1 Champion

We kicked off our first RunGood series with a multi-flight tournament that was a huge success. The $250 Super Stack Event 1 field reached 376 entries and David Albertson took home $13,585 for the win along with the RunGood ring.

The turnout more than tripled the $25,000 guarantee to put $77,080 in the prize pool. We had 49 players survivor their opening flight and enter Day 2 already in the money.

Lisa Teebagy returned for Day 2 with the chip lead and stayed at the top of the counts for most of the day as the field dropped towards the final table. She was still up top when the last nine players gathered as one and it looked like she was going to roll over the table wielding her massive stack.

Meanwhile, Albertson was steadily sticking around the top of the counts until they were three-handed. Mark Cannon ran his tens into the aces of Albertson for a huge pot, catapulting him into the lead, and they quickly agreed to divide up the remaining prize pool down the middle.

Teebagy earned $13,584 for the runner-up finish while Albertson took home his $13,585 top prize along with the shiny RunGood ring.

Mark Cannon

Lisa Teebagy folded her button and Mark Cannon moved all in for ~990,000. David Albertson snapped a call in the big blind for a good reason.

Albertson: AcAd
Cannon: ThTs

Albertson woke up with a monster at the three-handed final table and Cannon was in bad shape. It got even worse when Albertson flopped a set on the Ah5s2d board. It finished Jd turn and Kh river to send Cannon out in third place for $7,194.

Stephen Smith limped his small blind, David Albertson announced all-in from the big, and Smith called at risk for about 925,000.

Albertson: Ah9s
Smith: 8d8s

It was another race and Smith stayed ahead on the Jc6d5c flop. He

“980!” Eric Piderit said when action was on him in the cutoff. His all-in wager was for 980,000 and it made Lisa Teebagy sit up in the small blind. She checked Mark Cannon’s stack in the big blind before announcing all-in herself.

“Guys, I’m gonna need help!” Piderit told his rail.

Piderit: KdQd
Teebag: 9h9s

It was a huge race for a lot of chips and Piderit missed the As4c3d flop. The 9c turn gave Teebagy a set of nines and Piderit was drawing dead to the 7h river.

Lisa Teebagy – 3,600,000 (72 bb)
Eric Piderit – Eliminated in 5th Place ($3,661)
