RG Tunica Main Event (Day 2): Marshall Bailey Gets Lucky to Take the Lead, Three Table Redraw

Level 18 (6,000/12,000/12,000)
Total Entrants: 536
Players Remaining: 27
Average Stack: 397,000

Marshall Bailey (pictured) is in pole position with three tables left after getting supremely lucky to bust JW Carter in 28th place. 

Bailey opened to 36,000 in the hijack and Milos Knezevic called in the cutoff. Carter shoved for 340,000 total and Bailey moved all-in for slightly more. Knezevic got out of the way to put the biggest pot of the tournament up for grabs.


Bailey turned over K♠K and saw the last hand he wanted to when Carter showed A♣A♠. The K♣6♠2♣ flop put Bailey square in the lead and he couldn't bear to watch the turn or river. A third ace didn't come and Bailey is playing close to 1,000,000.
