Colorful characters tend to stand out at the table and late on Day 1C, two of those characters are climbing the leaderboard and making a name for themselves outside of the confines of the Horseshoe Poker Room. 

If you've ever seen a poker player wearing an Ed Hardy-Rasta themed jacked, please let us know because Gates Harris is very likely the first. Harris's unique look is doing an adequate job of accompanying his climb up the chip counts. Harris was near the lead on the second break and is now pushing toward 125,000. If Harris gets his hands on any piece of this large prize pool, it might be time to go shopping once again. 

We first encountered Thomas "Big Daddy" Blankenship at the cash tables earlier this week when every dealer called him by that nickname. For today, at least, Blankenship is playing the role of table daddy as his stack is peaking toward 100,000. Blankenship cashed in the RunGood Bounty event earlier this week and is now attempting to win the Grandaddy of them all in the RunGood Main Event.
