Yousef Saleh wins the RGPS Tunica Main Event and takes home after a five-way deal. He will take the Showbound trophy and $32,000 from the prize pool. The Tunica Horseshoe Main Event drew 495 entries and a prize pool of $247,500.
Here is a breakdown of the final table payouts.
The players started to talk deal after they returned from a break five-handed. Right before the break Kyle Cartwright was eliminated when he flopped two pair against Sim Therrell who flopped a straight. Cartwright couldn't catch up and left with $9,281.
Corey Hodgeman entered the unofficial final table with the shortest stack, but held on and managed to ladder to seventh place. Eventually he shoved all in over an under the gun open by Therrell. Therrell called the shove and busted Hodgeman, sending him to the rail with $7,549.
Dan Crossett fell in eighth place and took home $6,188 when he called an all in from Chris Brewington. Both had flopped a pair of aces, but Brewington had the better kicker and held on to win the hand.
Jon Swift was the first to leave the official final table when he shoved a short stack into the pocket queens of Faris Brooks.
The day started with 116 players returning for Day 2 and Therrell leading the way. He bagged the biggest stack from Day 1A and held the overall chip lead through two more starting flights. He managed to work that into the second-highest payout.
Several of the Run Good Ambassadors shot their shot with Dan Lowery (14th) and Justin Gardenhire (32nd) finishing the best among them.

That brings the total number of players advancing to Day 2 to 39 players. There were 47 entries in Day 1c which is a big number considering the flight started with only 13 players.

Lauren Bunch calls on the button after the remaining players fold and shows a flush with K♥ T♥ against the 8♠ 5♦ of Lowery.
The turn is the 8♣ and Lowery picks up some outs, but the river is the J♥ and Bunch holds on to win the hand and eliminate Lowery.
Lauren Bunch - 51,000
Dan Lowery - Eliminated
Dan Lowery is eliminating everyone and Cash Carpenter is the latest in a long line of players to bust thanks to Lowery.
According to Lauren Bunch, Carpenter three-bet Lowery holding ace-queen.
"He was raising every hand," said Carpenter, "and I wanted to get off of that table."
The table he was at has Lowery and Bunch, along with Judy Breedlove and Nam Phan. Grant Hinkle was already eliminated from that table and Justin Gardenhire just sat down.
Lowery shoved on Carpenter and Carpenter called his remaining stack. Lowery had pocket kings and held to knock Carpenter out of the tournament. With only five tables currently playing, it might be difficult for Carpenter to dodge Lowery for long, but he has already rebought and finds himself across from Eric Bunch.
Dan Lowery - 87,000
Cash Carpenter - 20,000
It's not unusual to see Dan Lowery off to a hot start in a tournament. He's already knocked out two players with ten minutes remaining in level one.
He already completed a flush draw against a player who flopped two pair after the two got all in on the flop.
On this hand, he is all in with K♦ K♣ against the A♥ A♠ of his opponent.
The board runs out J♦ 5♦ 3♦ 2♦ 8♣ and Lowery wins the hand with a flush.
Dan Lowery - 45,000
