RUNGOOD DOWNSTREAM MAIN EVENT (DAY 1A): Uncle Ron Came to Play

Level 7 (100/400/800)
Day 1A Entrants: 150
Players remaining: 65
Average chips: 46,153

Uncle Ron, Mason Hinkle's alter ego, is front and center at his table. It's fair to say Uncle Ron has style in spades. Having chipped up to an average stack we come to his table as a hand is in progress. There are 9,000 chips in the pot and the board reads A♠5♥8♥. Uncle Ron check-calls a bet of 5,000 to see the 8♣ on the turn.

He check-calls a bet of 8,000 on the turn and knuckles the Q♦ river. His opponent turns over AxKx for the best hand and Uncle Ron generously shows K♥T♥ for a missed flush draw.

"I tried to give you something to write about," Uncle Ron says.

That you did, sir.
