RG Bossier City Main Event (Day 1B): Jared Hemingway Makes the Most of a Second Chance
Level 6 (300/600/75)
Total Entrants: 261
Day 1B Entrants: 150
Only 24 players from the 111 who entered Day 1A advanced to Day 2. Jared Hemingway (pictured) was one of those who had their stack reduced to dust. Day 1B is a far different story for Hemingway, who is the early chip leader with 120,000.
Hemingway is building towers in the middle of the Horseshoe poker room as he chases after Jeff Kester's stack of 240,000 from Day 1A. The Texan is on a run as of late in neighboring Oklahoma. The last two WSOPC Choctaw Main Events resulted in a top-15 finish for Hemingway.
The RunGood Series is unbreached territory for Hemingway, who is trying to cross that item off of his list this weekend. Expect to see Hemingway near the top of the first round of chip counts, coming soon.
