RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Fourth Place - Justin Heilman ($9,452)

Level 28 (30,000/60,000/10,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 3
Average Stack: 1,855,000

Justin Heilman was short at the start of the final table and laddered up a few spots before being eliminated by Mark Fink. 

It's not how you start, it's how you finish and Mark Fink has been unstoppable in the new level. Fink sent Justin Heilman to the showers and is now in control of 40 percent of the chips in play with only three players remaining. 

Heilman became short after losing a few small pots and needed to shove with less than 10 big blinds. Fink opened for 125,000 under the gun and Heilman shoved for 480,000 from the big blind. Fink confirmed the total and decided the math was too much to pass up as he called with 108.

Fink was live against the A7♠ of Heilman and hit the 8 on the flop to take the lead. Heilman turned a pair with the 7♣ but missed the river. He will take home over $9,452 for his efforts after a great two days of poker.
