Jovan Sudar

Jovan Sudar will end Day 1a of the $575 $100,000 Guaranteed Run Good Poker Series Council Bluffs Main Event with a massive chip lead. Sudar leads a field of 21 other players, including Mason (43,000) and Grant Hinkle (54,000). The 22 players survived from a field of 117 entrants. This was the first of three flights and Day 1b starts Saturday at noon.

Sudar took the chip lead when he opened with aces and two players shoved behind him, one holding deuces, and the other queens. Sudar flopped top set and held to take down a huge pot and eliminate Chris "Pug" Juul. Blair Hinkle, Julie Cornelius, and Emily Larson all hit the rail on Day 1a but are expected to be in the field again tomorrow. Meanwhile, Mike Vanier (179,000), Dave Queen (160,500), and Patrick Watkins (154,500) also bagged.

Vanier jumped out to an early lead and Queen bagged a big stack thanks to a three-way all in where he eliminated two players with ace-king. A full list of the end of day chip counts will be available shortly.

The 22 remaining players will join the survivors or the Day 1b and Day 1c flights on Sunday at noon.
