RG TULSA Main Event (Day 2): BLAIR HINKLE ELIMINATED IN 6TH PLACE ($8,894)

Level 25 (25000/50000/50000)
Total Entries: 385
Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,540,000

Blair Hinkle (pictured) moves all in from early position for 585,000 and Jerry Moore calls from the big blind.

Hinkle - K♠9♠
Moore - A♥A♣

Hinkle runs into aces and must come from behind to go any further in the Main Event. The flop brings some hope when it comes J♠8♠2♥, giving Hinkle a flush draw. The K♣ on the turn increases the sweat as now Hinkle can catch a king or a nine in addition to a spade to win the hand.

The river brings the 7♣, taking all the wind out of Hinkle's sails. The RG Pro goes out in 6th place and will take home $8,894 in cash.
