RG Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): Thanh Bui Eliminates Chris Drake In 6th Place ($8,755) & Gary Fleischman In 7th Place ($7,277)

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 379
Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,515,000

Thanh Bui's run continues at the final table as he just eliminated two more players to now be in possession of half of the chips in play at the final table. 

Gary Fleischman (pictured) moved all-in from the button for about 150,000 and Bui raised all-in from the small blind to isolate. Chris Drake called all-in from the big blind for 500,000 and a three-way all-in was in play. 

Drake held the best of with K♣K♠ against the 6♣6 of Fleischman and the 88♠ of Bui. The 106♠3 flop put Fleischman in the lead and the 7 turn put everyone one step closer to staying alive.

As fate would have it, the 8 hit the river and Bui secured the double KO. By having more chips to start the hand, Drake (pictured) earns the pay jump. Bui is over 4,000,000 and running away with this final table.
