Kyle Kinder Wins RGPS Downstream Showbound Main Event for $42,781

The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) Showbound $575 Main Event hosted by Downstream Casino Resort attracted 372 entrants over three Day 1 flights, a baker's dozen shy of the venue record. The total prize pool for the event came to $186,000, well above its $100,000 guarantee.

On Sunday, Kyle Kinder emerged victorious to capture a $42,781, his first documented tournament cash according to HendonMob. In addition, Kinder and the entire final table were extended invitations into the season-ending freeroll satellite at Hard Rock Tulsa for a pair of $5,000 Sit & Go seats to be on Poker After Dark, recorded in the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.

Final Table Results

Place Player Country Prize
1 Kyle Kinder United States $42,781
2 Shane Fuller United States $26,412
3 Nic Petree United States $17,577
4 Lance Hendricks United States $12,183
5 Li Wu United States $9,207
6 Papa Karn United States $7,161
7 William McCracken United States $5,952
8 Matt Blackwell United States $4,929
9 Clyde Lorance United States $4,166
10 Norm Glueckert United States $3,181

 

Others to cash the Main Event were Kurt Haiss (13th - $2,399), James Traber (17th - $1,804), start-of-the-day chip leader Craig Dick (23rd - $1,488), Mike Marne (34th - $1,209), RGPS Council Bluffs champ Nick Burris (36th - $1,209), and Bill Sanders (44th - $1,023).

Final Table Action

Norm Glueckert was the first to fall after shoving with king-five suited and failing to get there against Nick Petree’s pocket jacks, and Clyde Lorance followed him out the door in ninth losing ace-queen to Matt Blackwell’s pocket queens.

Blackwell then hit the rail himself getting it in with pocket nines and losing a flip to Petree, who flopped an ace holding ace-queen. That proved to be a popular hand as Lance Hendricks used it to send William McCracken, who held king-nine in his final hand, out the door in seventh place for $5,952.

Papa Karn, the father of RGPS founder Tana Karn, took his leave after getting his short stack in with nines against Shane Fuller’s Big Slick, and Li Wu busted when his ten-eight suited fell to Fuller’s nine-seven.

It was at that point Kinder got his first final table knockout when Hendricks jammed with king-nine only to run it smack dab into the eventual champ’s ace-king. Kinder then used Big Slick to eliminated Petree, who had ace-eight, in third place for $17,577 before setting up a final two match against Fuller, which would last just six hands.

The former held a 2:1 chip lead, and it came to a head when Fuller three-bet jammed holding ace-queen and Fuller opted to call with king-four suited. One club on the flop and two more on the turn and river gave Kinder a flush, and Fuller was eliminated in second place for $26,412.

Dan Dykehouse Is Looking for His Shot on Poker After Dark

Dan Dykehouse is in the field, hailing from Sioux Falls, he travels to play several events a year at the Horseshoe in Council Bluffs.

He says it's a great room with a great staff and thinks it would be exciting to be on Poker After Dark. If he final tables this Main Event, he will be one step closer to the PAD stage, earning his spot in the RGPS Showbound satellite.

He works as a general manager and when he was asked how long he's been playing poker, he responded with a bit of a sigh.

He's made it this far through the field as the break approaches, with four more levels to play before the players bag for the night.
