RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): 9th Place - Jim Devaney ($3,350)

Level 25 (15,000/30,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 8
Average Stack: 695,000


Jim Devaney couldn't overcome a short stack at the final table and hit the rail in ninth place. 

The increasing blinds have put a lot of pressure on the shorter stacked players at the final table and Jim Devaney is the latest casualty. Devaney more or less hovered at the chip average for most of Day 2 but never trended upward at the final table. 

Devaney shoved for 295,000 from early position and found a caller in Scott Davis. Devaney's QJ♣ would need to catch up to Davis's A♠Q but the 722♠6♠4 board did not cooperate. With the elimination, Davis crossed over seven-figures and is playing 1,075,000.
