Hand #134 - Mark Brockington Eliminated in Second Place ($326,552)

brock n roll!
brock n roll!
Hinkle raises the button again, to 155,000. Brockington, who has been bleeding away blinds up until now, makes it 510,000. Hinkle considers it for a moment, before announcing that he's all in. Call.

Brockington: {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades}
Hinkle: {6-Hearts} {6-Clubs}

Once more, the Hinkle Fan Club seem to be chanting some kind of satanic mantra: "SIX! SIX! SIX!"

It works.

Flop: {6-Diamonds} {A-Spades} {2-Clubs} -- Hinkle flops the devil's own hand for a second time.

Turn: {8-Clubs} -- and Brockington is now drawing dead.

The irrelevant river: {2-?}

Meaning that Blair becomes the second Hinkle to win a bracelet this WSOP.
