RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (Day 2): 11th & 12th Place - Robert Shuptrine and Tai Du ($3,844)

Level 20 (8,000/16,000/2,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 381
Players Remaining: 10
Chip Average: 762,000

The last two eliminations needed to reach the final table didn't take too long to occur as Robert Shuptrine and Tai Du fell just shy of reaching the RunGood promised land. 

Robert Shuptrine (Bentonville, AR)

Shuptrine was up and down the leaderboard all day but once the field reached two tables, couldn't get the over the hump and back to the chip average. Shuptrine shoved for about 180,000 from the hijack and got a caller in Chad Freeman on the button. It was another flip, as have been common today, and Shuptrine was the one needing to catch with A♣Q♠ against Freeman's 10♣10♠.

A ten on the flop put a lock on the hand for Freeman and he is nearing the 800,000 mark as a result of the bustout.

Tai Du (Oklahoma City, OK)
Du was perhaps the swingiest of any player in the field throughout the tournament as he went from among the chip leaders to under 20 big blinds multiple times. Troy Repp ended Du's run and as a result, puts himself into his second RunGood Tulsa Main Event final table. Du opened for 65,000 from the cutoff and Repp three-bet to 165,000 out of the big blind. Du found a four-bet all-in for about 400,000 total and Repp called with Q♠Q. It wasn't looking good for Du as he turned over A4♣ and it only worsened when Repp flopped quads to put Du on the rail. Repp is the latest player to cross 1,000,000 and the final 10 players are drawing for seats with the final table set to get underway shortly
