RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Justin Heilman Hits 1,000,000

Level 26 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 7
Average Stack: 795,000

Justin Heilman hit a three-outer to survive earlier at the final table and is now right behind Greg Jennings for the chip lead. 

Phil Mader hit a dip earlier in the final table against Scott Davis but rebounded to chip back up over 1,000,000. Mader is now below 700,000 after shipping a big pot over to Justin Heilman, who is now right behind Greg Jennings for the chip lead. 

Mader opened for 80,000 from the hijack and Heilman three-bet to 175,000 out of the small blind, which Mader called. Heilman continued for 180,000 on the AK8 flop and Mader called to see the J♠ turn. Heilman moved all-in for about 540,000 and Mader conceded the pot. Heilman flashed AA♠ as he raked in the pot to move up the leaderboard.

Given how relatively shallow the field is at this stage of the tournament, there are bound to be more changes at the top as we near the finish line.
