The RunGood Poker Series CardPlayer Cruises Main Event on board of the Allure of the Seas concluded at sea. A total of 209 entrants over two flights combined to create a up top prize of $14,597 to be awarded alongside a Signature Championship Ring. Notables, Karina Jett (27th), Chad Holloway (26th), Chris Conrad (23rd), Tyler Patterson (22nd), Grant Hinkle (15th), and Chip Jett (13th) found their way into the money.
The final table saw three former Main Event Champions, Nick Burris (RGPS Council Bluffs), Blair Hinkle (RGPS Grand OKC), and Shawn Sparks (RGPS CardPlayer Cruises). While three handed, a blind versus blind battle saw Shawn Sparks and Blair Hinkle get chips into the middle with AJ vs AK. The clean run out shipped Hinkle the pot and enter heads up play with a eight to one chip lead against Dieter Dechant. Play finished quickly as Dechant shoved with Q3 from the button to be called by A8. An ace in the window propelled Blair Hinkle to his second RGPS title.
