The eliminations keep on coming in Level 19 with short stacks Linda Kittle and Mike Marn felted. The final table is now clearly in sight with 13 players to go and 10 of them making it.
Dan Lowery opened to 30,000 in early position and Kittle (pictured) shoved for 135,000 in the cutoff. Jon Bennett moved all-in from the small blind and that was enough to get Lowery out of the hand. Bennett was flipping with A♦Q♣ against the 10♣10♦ of Kittle. The 8♠4♠2♥3♥5♥ board rivered Bennett a straight and he climbs up to 395,000. Bennett is closing in on his second consecutive RG Tulsa Main Event final table.
Marn (pictured) pushed for 74,000 under the gun with A♠2♠ and Dan Martin called from one seat over holding J♣J♠. A deuce flopped but Marn improved no further to fall in 14th place. Martin is playing 640,000. The remaining field now earns a pay jump to $3,594.
