Event 44: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Blair Hinkle Eliminated in 24th Place ($13,297)

Blair Hinkle - 24th place

We picked this one up on the flop at which point there was about 45,000 in the middle, with {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} showing in the center. Acting first Niel Mittelman pushed out a bet of 25,000, and after a pause Blair Hinkle called. The turn was the {4-Hearts}, and Mittelman again led with a bet, this time for 50,000.

Hinkle sat quietly for close to a minute, then announced he was raising all in for around 250,000 more. Mittelman quickly called, tabling {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} for top set of aces. Hinkle had {A-Clubs}{J-Spades} for two pair, meaning the {9-Spades} river was no matter.
