RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (Day 2): 7th Place - Jon Bennett ($7,193)

Level 23 (15,000/30,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 381
Players Remaining: 6
Chip Average: 1,270,000

Jon Bennett had as up and down of a final table as any player but is officially out of the RG Tulsa Main Event thanks to a lost flip. 

Jon Bennett had ace-king work once for him to double up already this level but couldn't rekindle the same magic against Jonathan Nguyen. Nguyen opened for 60,000 from under the gun with 9♦9 and Bennett shoved for 680,000 out of the small blind with A♥K♣. 

The shove represented most of Nguyen's stack and after thinking it over for two minutes, he called to create a flip for nearly 20 percent of the chips in play. The Q♠543♣6♠ board ran true for Nguyen and he is nearly tied with Kristen Deardorff for the chip lead at 1,850,000.

Greg Jennings was tied with them but recently dealt out a double to Mike Rieck to put Rieck up to 820,000 while Jennings is now down to 1,450,000.
