RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Setti and Cash Collide, Field On The Bubble

Level 17 (2,500/5,000/500)
Total Entrants: 319

Players Remaining: 39
Average Stack: 163,500

Pots are becoming larger by the orbit and Cash Carpenter and Bhaskar Setti (pictured) matched up in a hand of over 200,000 chips with the field near the money. 

Carpenter opened to 8,500 in early position and Setti called in the hijack. Carpenter continued for 13,000 on the A♣Q3♠ flop and Setti called to the 6 turn. Carpenter bet 16,000 and Setti raised to 40,000. Carpenter took a moment to call and the 4♣ hit the river.

Carpenter checked and Setti put 65,000 in the middle. After two minutes of thought, Carpenter folded and Setti took in the pot. Both Carpenter and Setti are both near the chip lead and likely to be among the 36 who get paid. 

With the field three places from the money, the tournament is now on the bubble. Below is a look at the updated leaderboard.

Dylan Meyer - 350,000
Sean Johnson - 310,000
Cash Carpenter - 265,000
Marvin Hakola - 260,000
Bhaskar Setti - 240,000
Ajing Ajing-Ring - 230,000
