The third and final flight of the RG Council Bluffs Main Event is about to kick off inside the Horseshoe poker room. Thursday and Friday's flight produced 35 players who advanced to Sunday's Day 2. That number is expected to reach somewhere in the 60-70 range from today's Day 1C.
The $100,000 guarantee is officially surpassed with play starting. The only question now is just how high the prize pool will build before the end of registration. Players are required to conquer 12 30-minute levels before they can book their ticket to tomorrow. Late registration and unlimited re-entry are available until the start of Level 9 (4:30 pm).
Andy Van Blair leads the overall field with 203,500 and it will be interesting to see if any player catches him. The RG blog has all the coverage for today's penultimate day of the RunGood Series at Council Bluffs.
