RG Tunica Main Event (Day 1A): Rusty Stegall On Top Midway Through
Level 8 (500/1,000/100)
Day 1B Entrants: 208
Total Entrants: 332
The leaderboard is starting to take form in Day 1B of the RunGood Main Event. The current player to beat is Rusty Stegall (pictured), who has an even 100,000 in front of him.
If Stegall's name sounds familiar, it's probably because he made the final two tables of the RG Main Event in Tunica last August. A 15th place finish was Stegall's fate and after coming up shy of a bag on Day 1A, he's making the most of a second chance.
As we saw yesterday, being the chip leader now is no indication of who is going to be in front when the bags come out at the end of the night. Justin Gardenhire jumped in at the end of the registration period and ran up 20,000 to 200,000 in two hours.
The leaderboard is the major topic in the last four levels of the night and the current players in front are below.
Rusty Stegall - 100,000
Michael Sanders - 85,000
Chris Babb - 82,000
Eric Linderman - 75,000
Chris Moneymaker - 72,000
Sam Brackistone - 70,000
