RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (Day 2): 5th Place - Mike Rieck ($23,585)

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 381
Players Remaining: 4
Chip Average: 1,905,000

Jonathan Nguyen found a third king to crack Mike Rieck's aces and sent Rieck to the rail in fifth place. 

One can only imagine how the bust out hand for Mike Rieck would have played out had the five remaining players not agreed to a deal. Nonetheless, Rieck went from having Jonathan Nguyen coolered to being on the rail in two seconds in fifth place. 

Nguyen opened from under the gun to 90,000 and Rieck three-bet to 210,000 from the small blind. Nguyen then moved all-in, having Rieck slightly covered. Rieck called for his last 1,100,000 and turned over AA which had Nguyen chuckling as he flipped KK♠.

Despite the massive edge, Rieck could only watch as a king hit the flop. Rieck didn't find another ace and hit the rail with his largest score in a RunGood event.
