Biography

Blair Hinkle is an American poker player and is Missouri's all-time money leader with more than $5 million in live earnings.

Hinkle has no shortage of poker accolades. He is a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner, four-time Circuit ring winner, a two-time RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) Main Event champion and a Heartland Poker Tour champion.

Hinkle won the coveted bracelet at the 2008 WSOP in a $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event that brought him $507,613. Hinkle came close to winning a second bracelet in 2012 when he finished fourth in $1,500 NLH for $192,734.

Hinkle's title on the now-defunct Heartland Poker Tour came in 2016 when he took down the $2,500 Main Event in Thunder Valley for $223,411.

The Missourian's biggest cash to date came in 2013 when he defeated Justin Bonomo to win the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $5,300 Championship for $1.7 million.

Hinkle came close to winning a third RGPS Main Event title in April 2023 when he finished runner-up in the RGPS Joplin Main Event for $42,427.
