The charge of Robert Hankins (pictured) up the leaderboard is at a peak on Day 1A. Hankins sent an opponent to the rail after flopping perfect and getting paid the maximum.
After a flop of 8♣5♣5♦, the player soon to be on the rail bet 10,000 from early position into a pot of that size. On this player's direct left, Hankins raised to 20,000. This raise elicited an all-in of 76,100 and Hankins called right away with 8♦8♠. The full house was a huge favorite against the K♣K♠ of his opponent.No king came and Hankins took in one of the largest pots of the night to grow his stack up to 175,000, good enough for second behind Butch Clinton.
