Lauren Kucks (pictured) is the bubble boy for the RG Main Event final table. Kucks was short for most of the day and made a failed attempt at his last stand but not without a quality sweat.
Kucks pushed for 150,000 under the gun with 7♣7♦ and Mike Fouts called on the button with 9♦9♠ on the button.
The 10♠7♠5♠ flop put a set out for Kucks but Fouts was live to hit a flush. The 6♣ turn improved Fouts to a straight draw and he hit the flush on the J♠ river.
Fouts comes into the final table as the chip leader with 1,650,000. Players are on a 45-minute dinner break and the final table starts at 6:30 pm. The final table draw and chip counts will be posted before play starts.
