Hinkle Picking Up Steam

[user249964] • Level 32: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Blair Hinkle opened to 165,000 from the button as has been the case most of this round, and Brendan Waite made the call. Both players checked the {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop, and when the {j-Clubs} came on the turn, Waite check-called a bet of 200,000. Waite again check-called Hinkle's river bet of 275,000 when the {q-Hearts} hit. Hinkle turned over {j-Clubs}{k-Spades} giving him a pair of jacks. Waite sent his hand to the muck.
