The RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) Contenders Tunica $575 Main Event drew 602 entries over three starting flights, with 150 returning for Sunday's Day 2 inside the Horseshoe Casino Tunica. A total prize pool of 301,000 was to be distributed to the top 63 finisher, with $66,849 up for grabs to the next RGPS champion.
Ten hours later, the final table of nine was reached, where three players quickly fell before the remaining six played for another two hours without losing a single player. During that time, stacks got into the middle four times, all of which resulted in the all-in player doubling up; and after that fourth time, all six players willingly agreed to split the remaining prize pool evenly and take home $31,234 apiece for their efforts.
Of the six, Max Le had the chip lead at the time of the deal, and he claimed the victory as a result. For his win, he took home the RGPS Contenders Trophy and will earn a seat into the 2022 RunGood Pro-Am that will be played later this year at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.
