Tulsa, OK: The RunGood ambassador team will head into the 2018 World Series of Poker with two new individuals to represent the clothing brand and poker tour. Every summer the company selects two players that embody the RunGood brand and will become a familiar face along future tour stops. Invitations to the team are based on a wide range of criteria, not solely just poker accomplishments.
“It is always a tough decision each year as there are a ton of players who would fit into the ambassador role very well. We set varying goals year after year so we can construct a diverse group to represent the spirit of poker.” – Tana Karn, President and Founder of RunGoodGear.com
This year’s additions are, Emily Larson from Minneapolis, MN and Keith Ferrera from Las Vegas, NV. One is an up and comer in the tournament poker world and the other a seasoned veteran of the poker felt. Larson’s tournament poker career jumpstarted during the 2017 WSOP summer. To go along with her passion for poker, Larson is a talented tattoo artist, trivia wiz of the show “Friends”, and sports fan indicated by her pet cat named Randy Moss.
Ferrera has live tournament cashes dating back to 2008. Originally from Cincinnati, Ferrera found his home in Las Vegas immediately after turning 21 years old. Growing up Ferrera was a first chair violinist and attended Miami University before parting ways to pursue poker full time.
“I was suppose to come to Vegas for three days, but I never left.” – Keith Ferrera
Both look forward to a packed summer of action along with breaks at their favorite restaurants, Sen of Japan and Musashi Japanese Steakhouse. You can follow along their summer action via Twitter at @KeithFerrera and @OhDagEmily.
