There was a big sweat in the Casino Champion points race on the final day of the RunGood Poker Series at Jamul Casino! Between the Main Event and the Closer Bounty Event, three of the top 10 players in points still had a shot of winning the title of Casino Champion. With the final table set, both Harvey Algado and Seth Harmes were still in contention. In the other tournament area, Tai Reyes-Purpero was still fighting for his points in the Closer Bounty event with 14 players left.
Purpero had a total of 23.75 points accrued earlier in the week alongside an additional cash in the main event for a total of 26.25 points. He busted before the final table, giving him an additional point for a final total of 27.25 points.
Harmes was ultimately eliminated in 7th place in the Main Event, adding 10 more points to his previous 17.5, totaling 27.5 and topping Purpero.
Alegado, having previously won an event earlier in the week, already had 25 points. While outlasting Harmes in the Main Event, this guaranteed Alegado to best both Harmes and Purpero in points, crowning him the Casino Champion for Jamul Casino San Diego! Congratulations Harvey, we will see you in Las Vegas!
