First Post-Dinner Blood Goes to Hinkle

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

In the first hand back from the dinner break, Blair Hinkle opened for 165,000 on the button and Brendan Waite defended from the big blind. The latter player proceeded to check-call bets of 175,000 and 325,000 on the {2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Spades} flop and {2-Clubs} turn respectively, and then both players checked the {A-Diamonds} river.

Waite tabled the {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}, but it was no good as Hinkle held the {q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for deuces and queens.
