Hinkle in the Danger Zone

Blair Hinkle

We walked up to find Blair Hinkle looking at a board of {8-Spades}{K-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. A player had a bet of 5,100 in front of him and Hinkle was thinking about his decision. Eventually, he raised to 11,500. The player thought about it for a bit before eventually making the call.

The river was the {3-Clubs} and Hinkle decided to lead out for 15,000. Very quickly the other player called. Hinkle tabled {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} for top pair and it looked like he would win the pot, but after a few seconds of fumbling with his cards the other player was able to turn up his {9-Clubs}{10-Spades} for a turned straight. That was good enough to give him the pot as Hinkle dropped below the starting stack.
