RG TUNICA MAIN EVENT (Day 2): Gary Bland Eliminated 10th ($4,276), Tim Burt Triples

Level 23 (15,000/30,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 582
Players Remaining: 9
Chip Average: 1,295,000

Gary Bland (pictured) is the first player eliminated from the RunGood Main Event final table but Tim Burt is the primary story as he tripled up as a result of a three-way all-in to take in a huge pot. 

Kyle Cartwright opened in early position to 60,000 and Burt shoved from two seats over for 525,000. Bland called all-in for 300,000 on the button and Nick Kortenber called from the small blind to put them both at risk. Cartwright kicked his hand in and almost 1,800,000 chips were in the middle.

Kortenber led with A♣A♠ and had Bland's AK and Burt's Q♣Q dominated.

Burt managed to spike the Q♠73 flop to take the lead and Kortenber was suddenly drawing to one out. He missed on the turn and river, shipping the pot over to Burt who is now third in chips. Kortenber falls to 725,000 and Bland hits the rail in 10th place.

Kortenber falls to 725,000 and Bland hits the rail in 10th place. William Stanford and John Pelton are the two short stacks now immediately at risk.
