Kristen Deardorff is the new main event chip leader after taking down a huge pot against Troy Repp. 

Off the pace of the leaders for most of the day, Kristen Deardorff is now the chip leader of the RunGood Tulsa Main Event final table after taking down the largest pot of the tournament. 

Matt Newcombe opened for 42,000 from under the gun and Deardorff called from early position. Troy Repp opted in from the hijack and Chad Freeman along with Jonathan Nguyen called from the blinds.

The Q♣J6 flop was checked to Deardorff and she bet 81,000. From one position over, Repp raised to 210,000 total. Action folded back to Deardorff, who called after some thought. The turn was the A♣ and Deardorff shoved for 502,000 total.

After confirming the amount, Repp called with a massive draw 10♣9♣ and Deardorff would need her AQ♠ to hold. The river was another ace and Deardorff filled up to double to 1,625,000. She is now the chip leader with nine left and Repp is down to 375,000 after paying off the double as the final table dynamic shifts completely.
