RunGood Cup Championship Draws 403 Entrants, $237,770 Prize Pool

Flight C of the RunGood Cup Championship Event at Harrah's New Orleans started at 12:00 p.m. Saturday, and by the time registration closed at 4:20 p.m., 160 players had entered the field, bringing the total prize pool to $237,770--more than double the $100K guarantee.

PokerNews was on hand to record all the live action, which you can find here. By the end of the day, 37 advanced to Day 2 on Sunday at noon.  Flight C chip leader Russel Sartin bagged up 210,000 after 6½ hours of play, with My Nguyen (196,000), Clinton Morgan (193,000), and James Hall (184,000) close behind.

Based on the total number of entries in the tournament (403) 45 places will be paid; a min-cash is worth $1,307.74.  On the other end of the spectrum, the Inaugrual RunGood Cup Champion will receive $54,687.10 and the coveted RunGood Cup!
