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.
