The Run Good Poker Series is back at the Horseshoe Tunica for another week of laughs, drinks, and (of course) poker tournaments. The RG Pro Bounty kicked off the action Tuesday night, with ten special guests offered up as the bounties.
The bounties included 2003 WSOP Main Event winner Chris Moneymaker (below, left), Teresa Lammie (below, right) of Memphis bar league poker, among others (above).
Knocking out one of these pros came with more than just bragging rights; the bounty winner would also receive a RunGood leather bracelet and an additional prize ranging from RunGood apparel to $1,000 cash.
Over 200 players braved a Mississippi thunderstorm to vie for their chance. By close of registration the tournament collected 267 entries, creating a prize pool of $25,899 for a top prize of $6,216.
With over 20 tables in action, the room was perhaps as lively as we've seen, with shouts of "Bounty all in!" competing equally with shouts for "Cocktails!"
With four players left, a deal was struck to chop the remaining prize pool.
Congratulations to all the players who cashed or collected a bounty:

On Wednesday we continue the series with two Day 1 flights for the $180 Deepstack event. Flight A begins at noon with Flight B taking off at 7pm. The event features a $20,000 guaranteed prize pool and 15,000 in starting chips.
