Poker Grump Wins Run-Good Challenge Event 1Created By: Matthew Showell
The first Run-Good Challenge battle is over and Poker Grump managed to beat off the most bloggers to claim the $1,500 WSOP seat.
Spaceman made him sweat a bit heads-up but it was too little too late as the Grump steam-rolled his way to RGC glory.
Since I was the first elimination of the day I wasn't too keen on railing the rest of the event. In the end my curiosity won out, though, and I joined the throngs of ne'er-do-well's on the rail.
I'll leave the serious recapping to the champion since he kept a running live blog of his action for the entire event.
In my next post I'll link up the rest so make sure to check back tomorrow for that.
Remember, we've still got another event to go, next Saturday, and we're still looking for poker bloggers to get involved.
If you think you can hang, and that your blog will make the grade, hit me on twitter @mattshowell or leave a comment below with your info.
I'd like to get in on the action if I can. Sounds like fun!

Yeah, I guess pocket aces did get cracked. I saw that later when I replayed the game history. It was a fun tourney.
Pocket aces held up every time? Tell that to mine that fell to pocket jacks. Although Iggy's pocket aces losing to a suited 4-2 was far worse.
But cracked aces and all, I had a great time.
Lots of pocket aces in that tournament and I think they held up every time.
Thanks for the tourney. I'm still writing my review of the Run-Good Challenge and it will be on my blog soon.
Thanks again Matt and everybody at PokerListings.com!
Me please, pick me!
