RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Bhaskar Setti Eliminated 12th ($2,746)

Level 23 (10,000/20,000/3,000)
Total Entrants: 319

Players Remaining: 11
Average Stack: 580,000

Bhaskar Setti (pictured) was caught in a cooler to lose most of his stack to Scott Buller and was befallen by bad luck again to bust to Jim Devaney. 

Devaney opened under the gun to 55,000 and Setti called on the button. Devaney bet 40,000 on the J♠85 flop and Setti raised to 100,000. Devaney called and the A♣ hit the turn.

Devaney pushed for 285,000 effective and after tanking for four minutes Setti said, "I guess I lose my tournament," and called with QQ♠. Devaney showed him K♣K♠ and Setti winced at the sight. The 8♣ hit the river and Setti went to the payout desk.

After being close to elimination a short while ago, Devaney is the chip leader with 940,000. Kelly Van De Mheen is the short stack with 250,000 as the blinds get ready to move up and the final table on the line.
