RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (DAY 1B): Different Route This Time for 'Big E'

Level 10 (800/1,600/200)
Day 1B Entrants: 151
Total Entrants: 235
Day 1B Players Remaining: 60

The last time we checked in on Eric 'Big E' Thompson (pictured), he was at the final table of the November RG Main Event. Thompson took a nonconventional route to get there, based on his stack at this stage of Day 1 a few months ago. 

In the later stages of Day 1C, Thompson fell down to less than three big blinds and thought he was eliminated after an all-in. Thompson found out a few minutes later he had chips left and spun that stack up to a bag followed up by a final table finish. 

So far on Day 1B, Thompson is accumulating in a more linear manner. As a result, he is near the top of the leaderboard with 120,000 as he chases after a second final table in as many RG Main Events.
