Event #13: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Hinkle Outruns His Opponent, Gets the KO

• Nivel 2: 300-600, 75 ante
Blair Hinkle

Blair Hinkle just won a pivotal race as he called Keith Donovan's all in raise after a series of raises preflop. The two players showed their cards, and it was another classic race situation.

Hinkle: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Donovan: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, and Hinkle's flopped pair of queens was good enough to take the pot and boost his stack to 82,000.
