RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Thomas Tackett Into Second Place

Level 22 (12,000/24,000/4,000)
Total Entrants: 313
Players Remaining 7
Average Stack: 894,000

Thomas Tackett (pictured) was on the doorstep of elimination a few times but is now second in chips after getting a bunch from Russell Licking. 

Tackett opened the hijack to 56,000 and Licking called in the cutoff. Tackett bet 100,000 on the AJ♣J flop and Licking decided to raise to 400,000. This led Tackett moving all-in for 875,000 total. Licking folded and Tackett turned over the 7♠ as he took the pot.

The next hand, Licking moved all-in for 900,000 with A7♠ and Mickey Stuefen woke up with A♣A♠ in the small blind. The hand was over by the turn and Stuefen doubled his stack of 194,000. Jon Lawson is the short stack with 285,000.
