Level 3 (200/100/200)

Total Entrants: 83

This marks the fourth RunGood event for 45-year-old Terry Gardner, who hails from Chillicothe, Missouri. It's a friendly atmosphere, and he enjoys the general vibe at the tables.

"I know a lot of the players here," he says. "I try to hit a lot of the tournaments that are close."

Gardner began playing poker online in 2005 and was hooked. The game was good to him in those early days, and he won trips to Aruba in 2005 and 2006 to play in a big tournament in the tropics. On that second trip, he took home $16,000.

"It was a nice eight-day vacation with my wife," he says. 

When not at the tables, Gardner keeps busy as the owner of a lumber mill. At the Council Bluffs today, he's certainly hoping to saw through the competition.
