RGPS Tulsa Hard Rock Main Event: Blair Hinkle Leads 61 Players Heading to Day 2, Jacob Seale Bags Final Flight Lead
Jacob Seale, who just finished runner-up to Nam Phan for $32,428 at the RGPS Kansas City Main Event last weekend, bagged the chip lead with 255,500 on Day 1c of the RGPS Tulsa Hard Rock Main Event.
The final flight drew 111 players and 25 bagged to bring the total field returning for Day 2 to 61. There were a total of 319 entries and Blair Hinkle will lead the way into Day 2 with a whopping 451,000, after bagging a massive lead in Day 1b earlier in the day.
Clint Tolbert fell at the hands of Seale when Tolbert shoved a turned two pair into Seale, who called to hit trip tens on the river and eliminate Tolbert. Julie Cornelius sat on a short stack most of the day, but managed to find a bag and will start Day 2 with 39,000.
Mason Hinke (66,500) will join his brothers Grant (139,500) and Blair in Day 2 as well.
Day 2 will restart Sunday at noon with 61 players returning. The official prize pool has not been announced yet, but will be before the start of play.

The players in Day 1C are playing three more hands before bagging for the night.
Jeremiah Smith opened to 5,000 preflop and Mark Van Keirsbilck defended from the big blind.
The flop came and Van Keirsbilck checked. Smith bet 7,000 and Van Keirsbilck shoved all in for around 54,000. Smith folded.
Ted Forshey opened to 4,000 from middle position and Clint Tolbert reraised to 16,400 from the small blind.
Forshey raised all in, covering Tolbert's 56,000 remaining chips.
Tolbert took a few moments to decide his next move.
"Two sevens?" Tolbert asked.
"It's a light hand or a bluff."
"I know how good you are, I don't want to play a pot with you. I've seen your Instagram. With you and tan and your girl and your Speedo. I don't want to mess with you."
Tolbert took a few more moments.
"I'll show the hand," Forshey said.
Forshey tossed two jacks face up and collected the pot.
