RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Alex Candelaria Takes A Pile From Jovan Sudar

Level 16 (2,000/4,000/500)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 40
Average Stack: 139,000

Alex Candelaria picked up two kings at the perfect time and doubled up through Jovan Sudar to take the chip lead. 

Jovan Sudar has faced little resistance the last two days on his way to being chip leader for effectively the last eight levels or so. Sudar's aggressive style would make it likely for him to accumulate even more chips on the bubble but Alex Candelaria managed to put a slight cooler on Sudar to take the chip lead from him.

Candelaria limped in from under the gun with K♣K♠ and Sudar jammed all-in from the button with AK having everyone covered. The blinds folded and with about 180,000 in front of him, Candelaria confirmed that Sudar was all-in and called to create the biggest pot of the tournament.

The J♣10♠9 flop gave Sudar a broadway draw but the 2♠ turn and 4♣ river was clean for Candelaria to double up. Only four eliminations from the bursting of the money bubble, Candelaria is the new chip leader and Sudar is down to 220,000.
