RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 1A): Kelly Van De Mheen Out In Front
Level 11 (600/1,200/200)
Day 1A Entrants: 106
Players Remaining: 50
Less than 60 minutes separate the remaining Day 1A players from a spot in Sunday's Day 2. Leading the charge for the few tables remaining in play is Kelly Van De Mheen (pictured), who is currently the only player over 100,000.
One of the most experienced players in the field, Van De Mheen has over $146,000 in career earnings with a World Series of Poker Main Event final table among them. The Omaha native is battling with Justin Gardenhire and has the last two levels of the night to add to his lead.
Van De Mheen is a previous WSOP Circuit ring winner at Council Bluffs and a cash this weekend would be his second in a RunGood Main Event. Once play concludes for the night, a full list of the chip leaders from the flight will be posted and Van De Mheen is the favorite to be on top.
