Poker Grump Wins Run-Good Challenge Event 1
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.

Other honorable mentions go to Benjo for building a big stack, which he proceeded to spew, and to travismiller for taking a few of my chips (for the first time ever) before I busted.

Dr. Pauly's got a post up on Tao of Poker as does Loni at DrunkBlondePoker.

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.
