Level 25 (25,000/50,000/5,000)Total RG Main Event Entries: 379Players Remaining: 1Chip Average: 7,580,000 In what can only be described as the card rush of a year, Thanh Bui demolished the RunGood Kansas City Main Event final table and leaves the Main Event as the final champion of the Spring Brawl.  Bui was the among the shortest stacks for nearly all of Day 2 and came back from dinner break at the bottom of the leaderboard. Bui effectively doubled up by eliminating Ryan Phan and then doubled up again at the start of the final table, both times with pocket kings. After the first elimination of the final table, Bui was responsible for eliminating places two-through-nine with his termination of Troy Repp...

RG Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): 2nd Place - Michael Lech ($32,291)

April 30, 2017

Level 25 (25,000/50,000/5,000)Total RG Main Event Entries: 379Players Remaining: 1Chip Average: 7,580,000 If his poker career were to end tomorrow, Michael Lech (pictured) could tell stories for years about his heads up battles. First, he lost in an epic match to Hung Le last summer in the WSOP Crazy Eights event and today, came up short again to Thanh Bui. Lech started the match with a sizable chip disadvantage and then came back before losing the match in dramatic fashion.  Lech limped the button and Bui raised to 250,000. Lech called and the 9♦8♠5♠ flop was checked by both players. Bui checked the 9♠ turn and Lech bet 180,000. Bui called and then checked the J♦ river. Lech put in a...

RG Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): Michael Lech Pulls Even With Thanh Bui

April 30, 2017

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)Total RG Main Event Entries: 379Players Remaining: 2Chip Average: 3,790,000 It looked nearly impossible for Michael Lech (pictured) to overcome the huge chip lead of Thanh Bui once heads up play but in two hands, Lech has managed to pull even as we settle in for a full battle.  The first hand was a pure double up for Lech to put the first crack in Bui's armor. Bui opened for 145,000 and Lech three-bet to 375,000. Bui shoved all-in for 1,250,000 effective and Lech couldn't get his chips in fast enough with K♣K♠. Bui's A♥5♥ was partially live but the Q♣9♥6♣J♦10♣ board locked up the double for Lech. A few hands later, Lech called correctly on the river in...

RunGood Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): 3rd Place - Travis Higginbotham ($21,490)

April 30, 2017

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)Total RG Main Event Entries: 379Players Remaining: 2Chip Average: 3,790,000 Travis Higginbotham (pictured) climbed the pay ladder at the final table without much commotion and managed to stay out of the way of Thanh Bui's chip tornado. As a result of that play style, Higginbotham didn't acquire enough chips to be a factor once three-handed play started and was dispatched by Bui on the first orbit of play.  Higginbotham moved all-in for 700,000 out of the small blind with 7♦5♥ and Bui called with A♣5♠. The A♠J♦8♣ flop put Bui in firm control to secure the hand by the turn. Bui enters heads up play with 6,300,000 to Michael Lech's 1,280,000.
