42 Players return for Day 2 of the $180 Deepstack

The name of the game on Wednesday at the RunGood Poker Series was the NLHE Deepstack. Two Day 1 flights were scheduled, one at noon and another at 7 p.m., which drew a combined 305 entries. Players who entered started with 15,000 in starting chips and anyone surviving their Day 1 flight would return Thursday to play down to a winner.

Cary Marshall of Reno, Nevada emerged from Flight A as the Day 1 chip leader with 350,000 chips, which proved to be too much for the players in Flight B to match as the closest competitor, RG Pro Jose Montes, emerged at the top of the Flight B leaderboard with 211,100. As Yogi Berra would say, "It ain't over 'til it's over," and there's still Day 2 yet to be played.

With 305 entries, the prize pool reached $42,700; 36 players will make it into the money with $9,821 going to the first place finisher.
