2022 RunGood Poker Series
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
$1,100 RunGood Main Event (Re-Entry)
Prize Pool: $589,760
April 28 – May 1, 2022
The 2022 RunGood Poker Series was headlined by the $1,100 Main Event and it drew 608 entries over three starting flights. After getting through a tough final table, Vladimir Grechnikov took the title along with $80,268 after a four-way deal.
The tournament had a $200,000 guarantee and our players combined to create a prize pool worth $589,760. That is the biggest prize pool in RunGood tour history and the $111,186 set aside for the winner was the first time the tour had a six-digit top prize.
Of those 608 entries, we had 134 players advance to Day 2 on Sunday with 76 players getting paid. They hit the money bubble before the first break and it burst two hands after when Sean Shah ran into a cooler.
Defending champion Raminder Singh cashed while looking at another deep run but fell short of the final table. Last year’s runner-up, T.K. Miles made it that far but was eliminated in fifth place late on Day 2.
Day 2 came to an end early Monday morning and four players returned for some extra action 11 hours later. Matt Bretzfield led coming back for the bonus day with Grechnikov, Jason Wandling, and WPT Sochi champ Denys Shafikov rounding it out.
Before cards went in the air, the four players decided to adjust the payouts with all four guaranteed at least $65,000 with $80,268 going to the winner.
There were big swings until Grechnikov defeated Wandling in a race for all the chips. Bretzfield, Wandling, and Shafikov all earned $65,000 while Grechnikov took home $80,268 and a seat into the RunGood All-Stars ProAM running in Las Vegas this December.
Congrats to Vlad and thank you to all of our players who made the entire series a great success!
