RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 1B): Hinkle Brothers Roadshow Hits The Horseshoe

Level 2 (75/150)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 188
Total Day 1B Entries: 116

There are plenty of famous poker siblings with the Mizrachi's and the Pahuja's immediately coming to mind. For most people's money, it would be tough to find a duo from the Midwest who can favorably stack up against Blair and Grant Hinkle. The brothers are immaculately decorated with accomplishments and are in today's Day 1B field in search of another title. 

Blair Hinkle is earning his fair share of miles so far in 2017 with a healthy amount of tournament stops to his name. Hinkle's latest venture was up to Niagara Falls and the Fallsview Casino World Poker Tour event. Unfortunately for Hinkle, he didn't make the money but ever the grinder, drove over from Kansas City after returning home to play today. Hinkle has a laundry list of tournament accolades to his name and a RunGood Main Event title would be another gold star on his sparkling poker resume. 

The oldest member of the Hinkle clan and the newest member of the RunGood team, Grant, already has one main event title in 2017. Hinkle won the Choctaw World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event title in January for a cool $375,000 and now has a ring to go along with his WSOP bracelet. Both Grant and Blair own a hefty amount of bragging rights but becoming the owner of the a Spring Brawl Title Belt would go together plenty well with Grant's growing collection of poker accessories.
