Day 2 Completed
Congratulations to Aaron Clark, who worked his way through a field of 363 entries to win the 2015 RunGood Series Hard Rock Tulsa Main Event for $45,338. With three starting flights and the promise of a $100,000 prize pool, folks flocked to the series and ponied up $675, some more than once.
The guarantee was smashed and Hard Rock added $10,000 to first place for a pool of $224,170. The money bubble approached and busted in the third level of Day 2, giving the remaining participants a guaranteed min-cash of $1,178. Day 1 overall chip leader Jesse McVicker built a big stack early, but fizzled out in 29th place. Other notables to run deep, but fall short were Justin Gardenhire (22nd) and Dan "Wretchy" Martin (16th).
RunGood Series Pro Jonathan Gaviao had better luck, patiently wading his way to the final table, before finally busting in fifth place. It was Clark though, that stayed patient and steady, eventually dispatching a tough Clyde Lorance in a short, but hard-fought heads-up match to take home $45,338.
After Justin Bond went out in third for $20,239, Clark and Lorance agreed to a deal and then sped up play with levels increasing every 10 minutes. Before long, the blinds shot up to 200,000/400,000, and that's when the final hand took place.
Lorance got his money in good with the against the of Clark, but the board delivered Clark with the win.
With blinds at 200,000 and 400,000, Aaron Clark moved all in from the button and Clyde Lorance made the call and was at risk.
The board ran out and Lorance was eliminated in second place and took home $44,339.
With blinds now at a hefty 100,000 and 200,000, Clyde Lorance has opened an over two-to-one chip lead.
Lorance and Clark have also agreed to increase the blinds every 10 minutes. They are currently at 50,000 and 100,000.
Clyde Lorance and Aaron Clark have reached an agreement and will be playing heads up for $6,000. We will have final numbers at the conclusion.
Aaron Clark raised to 100,000 on the button and Justin Bond moved all in from the big blind for around 800,000. Clark called quickly and it was a cooler for Bond, who tabled versus the of Clark.
The board ran out and Bond headed to the rail.
Three-handed play is fairly uneventful thus far. A lot of shuffling chips back and forth.
We caught the action with the board reading and Justin Bond moved all in on Clyde Lorance. Lorance made the call and tabled for two pair. Bond's needed help, but he couldn't find it on the river and Lorance doubled large, leaving Bond short.
Action folded to Rick Woyczik in the big blind and he moved all in for just under 300,000. Aaron Clark called from the big blind and tabled . Woyczik found no help for his on the runout and headed toward the rail.
