Thursday at the RGPS Harrah's North Kansas City began with Day 2 of the $180 Deepstack event. 59 players began the day, but only 36 would make the money. As in any tournament, you must play well and run well, avoid bad luck and win your flips. Candace Caley, the chip leader at the start of Day 2, missed the final table by half a dozen spots, thanks in part to a bit of bad luck when her K♠K♣ lost to Dave Likins A♣6♦, which you can read about here.

RunGood was on the scene throughout Day 2 of the Deepstack reporting hands and chip counts throughout the day. A scroll through the blog will give you a play by play of the day's action. For a look at the photo album from the event, click here.

When play reached the heads-up stage, Nicholas Burris held a 3-to-2 chip lead over Timothy Sipe, and the two agreed to chop the remaining prize pool as shown below. But the two played out the remainder of the tournament with the winner taking the title of champion, the RG custom medallion, and a Bose speaker. Sipe overcame the deficit and went on to win the event in two key hands you can read about here.
