Brandon Fish, two-time World Series of Poker Circuit ring winner, had a few early strokes of good luck that led him to a first-place finish this weekend at the RunGood Poker Series Horseshoe Council Bluffs. Fish came out on top of a pool of 283 entrants to win $34,267, the second biggest score of his career.
The win pushed Fish’s all-time winnings over $200,000.
The final day was a challenge for Fish, but he managed to hold on despite two less-than-stellar hands. First, the Nebraska native was dealt an A♢, Q♤ against 10♤, 10♡ and managed to hang on after going all in. Next, his 3♧, 3♢ beat out his opponent’s A♤, 6♤ and the tone for the rest of the day was in Fish’s favor.
Tim Woodson entered the final table with the chip lead and nobody busted for the first three hours. Fish then took a risk that paid off with A♡, K♡ against Matt Sztamburski’s pocket jacks.
In an interesting twist, Woodson was the first to be eliminated and the following ten minutes saw three more players fall by the wayside. The final hand came down to two Nebraskans: Fish, who was holding A♤, 2♤, and Thaddeus Wolff, who had K♤, 8♤.
The flop came 6♧, 6♤, 5♤, giving both the flush draw. When the third heart came, it was all over but the crying; Wolff couldn’t help pushing with his king against Fish’s nut flush.
In addition to the $34,267 grand prize, Fish (and the other top-nine) also won a $2,000 Blaycation package to the RunGood Cup Championship in New Orleans.
The RunGood series will continue in Tulsa on Sept. 16.
