RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Double Ups Keep The Final Table Away

Level 22 (8,000/16,000/2,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 12
Average Stack: 463,000

Scott Davis was under 10 big blinds after the money bubble but is now nearing the chip average after doubling up through Alex Candelaria. 

There have been numerous chances for the final table to be reached in Level 22 but players are finding ways to stay alive. There are still 12 players remaining but that isn't for a lack of all-ins. 

Alex Candelaria has been the victim of giving out two doubles and is no longer the chip leader as a result. 

The first player to double was Greg Jennings, who is up over the 400,000 mark. Jennings shoved for 206,000 from late position with J♠9♣ and Candelaria called with A♣Q to put Jennings at risk. Jennings flopped and rivered a jack to secure the double as he nears another final table.

A few hands later, Scott Davis moved all-in for 140,000 from the button with 2♣2. Once again, Candelaria called with A♣Q♠. Davis flopped a set to secure is double and Candelaria is down to 450,000 and in the middle of the pack.
