If the first two starting flights of the RG Tulsa Main Event have proved anything, it's that the last levels are the most important for chip accumulation. The respective chip leaders from each flight gained the majority of their chips in the final hour of the night and two players are keen on making sure that trend continues.
John McMahan has been on the uptick for most of the day and is nearing the 160,000 mark midway through Level 11. MacMahan does well in Tulsa area poker tournaments but has never cashed in a RunGood Series Main Event. That trend would appear unlikely to continue if MacMahan can bag one of the top stacks in this flight.
Speaking of first cashes, Taylor Scott can earn his first RunGood Series Main Event cash if he winds up among the final 45. Scott has relieved Nick Burris of some of his chips and is playing near 150,000. There are few better ways to "get on the board" than to notch a main event score and Scott has the chance to do just that.
