RG Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): 8th Place - Troy Repp ($6,027)

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 379
Players Remaining: 7
Chip Average: 1,085,000

Troy Repp (pictured) started the RunGood Kansas City final table as chip leader but is just an observer now thanks to Thanh Bui, who is the new overwhelming chip leader. Bui and Repp played the largest pot of the tournament and Bui came out on top. 

Repp limped from the small blind and Bui raised to 140,000 in the big blind. Repp called and the two players checked the Q♠9♣8 flop. Repp bet 75,000 on the J turn and Bui raised to 275,000. Repp immediately pushed all-in for approximately 1,100,000 and Bui called with K10♠ for a turned straight. Repp had K7 and need a diamond or a 10 to stay alive.

The river came the 5♠ and Bui locked up the hand. As a result, Bui is over 3,000,000 and playing double that of Michael Lech and Travis Higginbottom.
