Level 6 (300/600/75)
Day 1A Entrants: 68
When RunGood came through Tulsa in February, the Main Event fielded 381 entrants, leading to a strong final table. Two of those final tablists are seated next to each other on Day 1A with Chad Freeman (L) and Jonathan Bennett both working their way toward earning a RunGood Cruise seat.
Bennett took seventh place, earning $7,193 and jumpstarted a career year for him. The Oklahoman has accumulated $143,000 in tournament earnings in 2017, with a second place finish in the Oklahoma State Championship at the Hard Rock as one of his top scores. This week, Bennett placed 10th in the WSOP Circuit Choctaw Main Event for $20,090.
Freeman is a frequenter of the cash games in Tulsa and navigated his way into the five-way chop deal in February. Fourth place earned Freeman over $18,000 and his largest career tournament result. Freeman also cashed in the WSOPC Main Event in Tulsa this March.
The two neighbors are both alive near the end of Level 6 on Day 1A and if their winning ways keep up, they may be seeing each other again come May.
