Whittling Waite Down

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

There haven't been any crazy hands as of late, but slowly but surely Blair Hinkle is whittling Brendan Waite down by swiping blinds here in there.

In a recent hand, Hinkle opened for 165,000 on the button only to have Waite three-bet to 420,000 from the big blind. Not to be outdone, Hinkle moved all in and put the pressure on Waite, who had 2.25 behind. The local pro, who won a ring here at Council Bluffs back in 2010, thought for nearly three minutes before flashing the {A-Spades} and folding.
