The newest members of the RunGood Ambassador Team are no strangers to the poker scene. Both hold a plethora of trinkets aka WSOP Bracelets and WSOP Circuit Rings to go along with their combined 5.6 million dollars in tournament winnings. They frequently credit their success to a Monday Night Poker League which could be the toughest poker league this side of the Mississippi. Even with their competitive nature and accomplishments, both stay extremely humble on and off the felt.
"Grant and Blair have been amazing representatives to the game here in the Midwest for quite some time now. Having them be a part of RunGood was a no brainer." - Justin Gardenhire, Lead Ambassador.
Grant became a part of the team at the end of January this year following his 2017 WSOPC Main Event Champion title. Those that follow the RunGood Poker Series Tour will recognize him easier when he's holding a glass of wine. Growing up a huge wrestling fan, Grant was a frequent sight on tour this season as he was on a quest for one of the coveted Spring Brawl championship belts. Be sure to ask him about making poker weird again.
"I always looked forward to RunGood events because they were a friendly buy-in level for the recreational player and their team pros always made sure everyone was having a great time. Poker should be fun and I am honored to join the RunGood team that so perfectly embodies the spirit of the game." - Grant Hinkle
Blair joins the team just as the 2017 WSOP kicks-off. Before becoming an ambassador, Blair could be seen at various RGPS stops and bar nights. Despite a resume featuring seven figure scores, he keeps a well known down to earth personality. As the new RGPS Fall Season materializes, Blair looks to add a new accomplishment for his Hendon Mob profile as the tour moves onto it's championship season.
"When I heard Grant was joining the RunGood team I have to admit I was a bit jealous. Having a few friends who were already members, I knew it was a really great group of people. Getting to meet more of the RunGood team at the Council Bluffs and KC stops made it an easy decision to hop aboard. I can’t wait to sweat some of the fam at WSOP Final Tables this summer. I’m hoping to get one early and get the summer of RunGood started!" - Blair Hinkle
