RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Aggression Pays Dividends

Level 22 (8,000/16,000/2,000)
Total Entrants: 319

Players Remaining: 16
Average Stack: 399,000

There is yet to be an all-in and call since play resumed but James Hall (pictured) and Bill Sindelar were willing to put themselves at risk and scooped important pots as a result. 

Bhaskar Setti opened the button to 40,000 and Hall defended his big blind. Hall checked the 10♠2♠2 flop and Setti bet 60,000. Hall shoved for about 240,000. Setti said, "I can't do it" and folded. He has 620,000 and Hall is up to 450,000.

Dylan Meier opened the hijack to 37,000 and Bill Sindelar three-bet to 100,000 on the button. Meier called and checked the A6♣2♠ flop. Sindelar moved all-in for 203,000, leading Meier to tank for two minutes. Meier ended up folding to leave himself with 270,000.

With the blinds relatively high, more all-ins like this are likely to take place in the near future.
