RG Tunica Main Event (Day 1B): Unbelievable Start for Dan Lowery
Level 2 (100/100/100)
Day 1B Entrants: 166
Total Entrants: 311
RunGood's Dan Lowery didn't make the end of Day 1A and had to start to fresh this afternoon. Lowery started fresh and then some and is already up to 130,000 in only two levels of play.
How is a stack of that mass even possible? Lowery filled us in on some of the details.
According to Lowery, he doubled on the first hand of the day with queen-high. Yes, queen-high. Lowery called a raise with queen-ten and found his way all-in on the turn facing off against jack-ten, who had an inferior straight draw. Queen-high held and Lowery picked up a few thousand more before the end of the level.
After Lowery opened dark under the gun, a player shoved all-in for 3,200. The big blind called and Lowery joined the party holding Q♦7♦ and the three-way K♠J♦4♦ flop provided Lowery a flush draw.
Lowery check-raised the big blind all-in for 17,000 effective and hit the 3♦ on the turn to send both players to the cage.
Can Lowery continue chipping up and catch Jesse Jones' Day 1A chip lead of 287,000? Stay tuned to find out.
