RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Hinkle's Battling, Uncle Ron Over 100K

Level 14 (1,200/2,400/400)
Total Entrants: 319

Players Remaining: 99
Average Stack: 64,400

The Day 2 field is already below 100 players as the second level of play gets started. Tables are breaking and new seating assignments formed with RunGood team member Blair Hinkle and Uncle Ron (pictured) now seated next to each other.

Uncle Ron sent an opponent to the rail to end the previous level and is over 100,000, putting him well above the chip average. 

He opened to 4,500 in the cutoff and Justin Charlten defended his big blind. Charlten bet 8,000 into Uncle Ron on the Q9♠6 flop and Uncle Ron called to the Q♠ turn.

Charlten moved all-in for 14,700 and Uncle Ron was right behind him with a call. The A2 of Charlten was drawing thin against the K9 of Uncle Ron and the 3 river sent him out.

As the field reduces further on Day 2 it will be interesting to see if Hinkle and Uncle Ron tangle at all with family bragging rights and a seat on the RunGood Cruise on the line.
