RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): "Batman" Soars To Double

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

Players Remaining: 16
Average Stack: 399,000

Jim "Batman" Devaney (pictured) has been waiting for a while hit a major double and did so against Bhaskar Setti to hit 600,000. 

Devaney opened to 42,000 in early position and Setti three-bet to 110,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Devaney moved all-in for 294,000 total. Setti called right away with K♣K and Devaney was in trouble with AJ.

The 98♣6♠ flop didn't give Devaney much but he picked up a gutshot on the Q♣ turn. The 10♣ river gave him the straight and shipped him the pot. Devaney is in the top-five in chips and Setti falls to 250,000.

Matt Morfitt is back up to 675,000 and the chip leader on Table 15.
