RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (Day 2): Kristen Deardorff Cracks 2,500,000

Level 22 (12,000/24,000/4,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 381
Players Remaining: 8
Chip Average: 952,000

Kristen Deardorff continues to lead the final table and is in control of almost 35 percent of the chips in play. 

The RunGood Tulsa Main Event final table might as well change its name to the "Kristen Deardorff Show." Since play began, Deardorff has climbed higher and higher and now holds one-third of the chips in play. The primary victim of Deardorff's chip accumulation has been Troy Repp and Deardorff recently took another pot from the former RG Main Event Champion.  

Jonathan Nguyen, Deardorff and Repp saw a flop of J♣108♣ and Nguyen checked from early position over to Deardorff, who bet 107,000 from the hijack into a pot of about 200,000.

Repp called from the button and Nguyen got out of the way before the 3♠ hit the turn. Deardorff bet 315,000 more and Repp called with roughly that much behind. The 8 came on the river and Deardorff put Repp all-in. Repp gave it some thought but gave it up and Deardorff chipped up even more.

Level 23 is soon to start and Repp, Gil George, Mike Rieck, and Jon Bennett are all under 500,000 meaning we could see some all-ins in the near to immediate future.
