If you're already up to speed you'll know that our own master of strategy Dan Skolovy absolutely crushed, winning the first two events and locking up a seat in the finale before the first hand of Event 3 was even dealt.
I had a little less run-good working for me, but still managed a second-place finish in Event 3. If this game was fair my six points would be enough to get me a seat at Event 4 but poker, just like life, isn't always on the level.
Since Dan and I both work for PL.com, we decided to be generous and limit ourselves to just one seat, meaning whichever one of us performed better would represent PokerListings while the other watched in frustration from the virtual rail. As I've already mentioned, Skolovy's score was just a hair above my own.
This was good news for the rest of our intrepid bloggers, however, since it meant one extra seat was up for grabs.
After the scores from the first three prelims were tabulated, Dan plus four external bloggers were in the clear and guaranteed a seat. The sixth and final spot came down to a tie between Change100 and Spaceman.
Spaceman politely suggested we just make it a seven-seated finale but, coldhearted as we are, that was never going to happen. And so Change100 and Mr. Spliff met in a battle to the death, squaring off in a $1 SNG on PokerStars to see who would advance and who would join me on the sidelines.
I was in transit to Korea when it went down so I wasn't fortunate enough to witness the carnage firsthand. Bottom line is Change100 buried Spaceman, locking up a seat and some guaranteed cash for herself this weekend. Check out Spaceman's blog for the recap.
So with Change100 through we finally have a clear picture of Event 4's roster.
The first three events all had $1,000 prize pools but, just like the name implies, the Grand Final Championship is even bigger. $2,500 was first allocated, but because I took second last week there's another $588 rolled over and thrown in the mix.
With the added money the payouts look pretty juicy.
With all this cake on the line, not to mention the honor of being crowned Run-Good Series Champion, each and every participant will be fighting tooth and nail to take it down on Saturday. Although I won't be playing I will be watching from the rail, ready to cheer on D-Sko and talk smack to the other five.
This is especially impressive since I'm in Korea covering the APPT Seoul main event, which means I'll be waking up at 6 a.m. to watch it go down.
And remember it's a hell of a lot better to run good than play well. That's how Jerry Yang does it, that's how we do it, and it's worked out pretty well so far.
