Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Hinkle Hands Over Double Up and Busts

• Taso 3: 400-800, 100 ante

Bracelet winner Blair Hinkle opened a hand from the cut-off to make it 1,700. Noah Sandler in the big blind was next to act and he moved all in. Hinkle made the call pretty quickly and cards were tabled.

Hinkle: {A-}{Q-}
Sandler: {K-Spades}{10-Spades}

A {q-Spades}{4-Clubs}{J-Spades} flop fell out of the deck, which gave Sandler all kinds of potential outs to steal the hand away from Hinkle. A {6-Spades} on the turn quickly brought the winning hand to Sandler. Nothing could come on the river to put the hand back in Hinkle's favor, but the {8-Clubs} landed none the less.

A couple of hands later we noticed Hinkle leaving the tournament area going to collect his money as he was just eliminated.

Tagit: Blair Hinkle
