A few hands into heads-up play a huge hand started to develop. It began with a min-raise and call preflop, but once the came on the flop, fireworks ensued. Waite check-raised Hinkle's 100,000 bet to 300,000. Hinkle took his time, but decided to fire out 600,000, and when Waite four-bet to 1,100,000, the room started to stand and gather around the table, in anticipation of a possible all-in situation. Hinkle eventually made the call and the peeled off on the turn. Waite checked and there was a long pause, now about ten minutes into this hand, before Hinkle checked behind. The came on the river and Waite put out a bet of 800,000 and Hinkle quickly called.
Hinkle had flopped trip sevens and took down the massive 3,800,000 pot.
