RG Council Bluffs Main Event (Day 2): 10th Place - Grant Hinkle ($2,641)

Level 24 (12,000/24,000/4,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 278
Players Remaining: 9
Average Stack: 618,000

RunGood's Grant Hinkle outlasted his brother Blair but couldn't overcome the pocket aces of Brian Dewey. 

RunGood's Grant Hinkle came into the final table as the only member of the team to make it to the promised land but he is now the first player out. Hinkle became short and with the blinds one level higher, he was forced to move all-in. 

Hinkle shoved for 306,000 on the button and Brian Dewey asked for a count from the small blind. A minute passed and Dewey called to officially put Hinkle at risk. It was a rough scenario for Hinkle, who had Q9 against the A♣A of Dewey. The J102 flop opened the door for Hinkle as he flopped a straight draw and the 3 turn added a flush draw to the mix.

The 3♠ river missed his target of outs and Hinkle hits the rail in 10th. Dewey is up to 745,000 and once of the bigger stacks at the final table.
