RunGood Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): 3rd Place - Travis Higginbotham ($21,490)

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 379
Players Remaining: 2
Chip Average: 3,790,000

Travis Higginbotham (pictured) climbed the pay ladder at the final table without much commotion and managed to stay out of the way of Thanh Bui's chip tornado. As a result of that play style, Higginbotham didn't acquire enough chips to be a factor once three-handed play started and was dispatched by Bui on the first orbit of play. 

Higginbotham moved all-in for 700,000 out of the small blind with 75 and Bui called with A♣5♠. The A♠J8♣ flop put Bui in firm control to secure the hand by the turn. Bui enters heads up play with 6,300,000 to Michael Lech's 1,280,000.
