Lucas Tae, RunGood Event 2 Champion

Event 1 kicked off the RunGood series but Event 2 awarded the first ring. The $130 Opening Night Ring Event drew a huge 211-entry field and Lucas Tae walked away with the title along with $5,028 after a long heads-up battle with Kimani McKoy.

The field more than doubled the $10,000 guarantee and put $20,678 in the prize pool. The last 27 spots were paid and the tournament quickly moved into the money. Action slowed down once they reached the final table including a heads-up match that lasted longer than two hours.

Tae won the match, earned the ring, and picked up a big payout for a small buy-in; the new jewelry going along nicely with his WSOP Circuit ring. Tae recently pushed his career total over $100,000 with a second-place finish in a SHRPO event in Hollywood a few weeks ago and rode his heater to the title.

The win also means Tae sits atop the RunGood Casino Champion Leaderboard leaderboard. The player with the most points at the end of the series will earn tournament seats to a 64-player capped event streamed from inside the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas. There are four events remaining so plenty of time to earn those points.

Event 2 cruised right past its $10,000 guarantee in the first level and players continue to put up the $130 buy-in to get the big field. Registration will remain open until 8:15 pm so get down here if you can.

RunGood Ambassadors Boston Rob Mariano and Ray Henson were in the game early and mixing it up. Henson got a good start to his tournament, knocking a player out with eights versus KQ for a double starter stack.
