RG Kansas City Main Event (Day 2): Blair Hinkle Starts To Climb

Level 16 (3,000/6,000/1,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 379
Players Remaining: 39
Chip Average: 194,000

Blair Hinkle is at his peak for the RG Kansas City Main Event and working toward another deep run in the Spring Brawl. 

It was around this time a few months ago in Council Bluffs when Blair Hinkle started to rake in chips in mass quantities. Although he fell shy of the final table, Hinkle was well positioned to make it there if not for a massive cooler. Perhaps the most experienced player left in the field, Hinkle is playing 300,000 and working his way up the leaderboard. 

Jeff Tebben opened from early position to 15,000 and Greg Jennings called on the button. Hinkle completed his big blind and the QJ5♣ flopped checked to Jennings, who bet 22,000. After he confirmed the total of the bet, Hinkle raised to 49,000.

Tebben quickly released and Jennings thought for a few moments before letting his hand go. At a tough table that also features James Mackey and Michael Lech, Hinkle is in charge for the time being.
