RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): Yashveen Mudireddy Takes Chip Lead, Down to 19

Level 20 (5,000/10,000/1,000)
Total Entrants: 319

Players Remaining: 19
Average Stack: 336,000

Yashveen Mudireddy (pictured) is officially in first place after eliminating start of Day 2 chip leader Matt Hartigan. The WSOP Circuit ring winner from Council Bluffs won a key flip and is ahead of Matt Morfitt thanks to some bad luck on Morfitt's end.

Hartigan shoved for 110,000 in the cutoff with 88♠ and Mudireddy called out of the small blind with AQ. The 10964♠6 board gave Mudireddy a flush and the pot to send Hartigan out.

On another table, Morfitt lost an all-in to Bhaskar Setti when Setti's ace-king four-flushed the ace-king of Morfitt. Setti chips up to 440,000 and Morfitt is down to 505,000. Mudireddy leads for the time being with 625,000.
