Day 1A of the RGPS Tunica Horseshoe Main Event is over and Sim Therrell leads the 30 players heading into Day 2 on Sunday. He bagged 238,500.
Dan “Wretchy” Martin, Clint “CT” Tolbert, and Keith Fererra all played Day 1A and busted, while Kyle Cartwright surged late to come in just behind Therrell after losing to a bad beat with pocket kings. He bagged 178,000. Justin Gardenhire also bagged, ending the day with 128,000.
Some of the familiar local players bagged Day 2 as well. Joe Huey (117,000) and Connie Rice (30,000) all bagged. John Walker, who won his seat from a single-table sit-and-go and was all in blind at one point in the tournament when he was short and in the big blind, also bagged. He has 38,500.
The flight drew 135 entries and with satellites still going on, and a 9 a.m. satellite Saturday morning, the total field looks to be another big number.
There are two more flights Saturday at noon and 7 p.m. Keep up with all the updates on PokerNews.com
