RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Competition Building Behind Walters

Level 16 (3,000/6,000/1,000)
Total Entrants: 313
Players Remaining 37
Average Stack: 165,000

Joseph Walters is still the chip leader midway through Level 16 but Mike Fouts (pictured) and Greg Jennings are not letting him run away just yet. Both players are over 400,000 after picking up needed pots. 

Andrew Brock shoved the small blind for 65,000 with J♣4♣ and Fouts woke up in the blind with A♣8. No help came for Brock and he is on the rail. Fouts chips up to 440,000. Michael Connors limped in early position and Jennings raised to 17,000 in the cutoff.

Jim Billups called out of the small blind and Connors put in the additional chips. The A♠7♠5♣ flop checked around and the 7 turn checked to Jennings. He wagered 23,000 and only Connors called to the 3 river. Both knocked and the A♣4♣ of Jennings was enough to claim the pot. He is playing 475,000.

The money bubble will be here shortly and the updated leaderboard is coming up then.
