RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 1B): PLAYERS IN THE FIELD - MATT WRIGHT
Level 5 (200/400/400)
Total Entrants: 108
Matt Wright (pictured, left) has played all the events at this week's RGPS in Kansas City, bringing with him a light-hearted but competitive spirit to the table. So, we caught up with him at break to get a little of his story. A career truck driver from Cameron, Missouri, Wright has a dream of playing in Vegas against his poker heroes. But to get there, he has to build a bankroll, which means playing in smaller events, including mid-majors like the RunGood Poker Series.
"This is about the most I can afford to take a shot at a big payday," Wright says. "I've gotten close before, but haven't hit the big one yet."
Wright says he often plays daily tournaments and other series that visit Harrah's North Kansas City. "My biggest win was around $3,000 for a tournament here," he says.
Thanks for coming out, Matt. May your RunGood dreams come true.
