RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (DAY 1A): RunGood on RunGood Crime, Hinkle Busts Wretchy to Take Chip Lead

Level 11 (1,000/2,000/300)
Day 1A Entrants: 71
Players Remaining: 16
Chip Average: 88,800

Coming down the stretch of Day 1A, Dan Lowery has fallen off of his earlier pace and is down to 110,000. Most of Lowery's chips have shifted over to the stack of Jesse Jones, who is up to 140,000. Jones is the chip leader on his table and on the second table in play, Grant Hinkle (pictured) is in pole position. 

Hinkle has been on a steady climb in the last few levels and is now up to 180,000 after eliminating fellow RG pro Dan 'Wretchy' Martin. Hinkle opened in late position for a standard raise and Martin shoved for about 30,000 from the blinds. Hinkle called with K♠10 and was behind the K♣Q♣ of Martin. A ten hit the flop for Hinkle and he held on to bust his RG teammate.

Heading into the last level of the night, Hinkle is leading the RunGood pros with Ben Reason, Lowery, and Ray Henson all in contention.
