Grant Hinkle opened for 6,000 only to have a player three-bet him to 45,000. Hinkle thought for a long time about what to do next before moving all in for a little over 100,000. The button snap-called and Hinkle seemed to know he was in trouble.
"Do you have aces?" he asked. Sure enough his opponent tabled the . "That's what I was afraid of. I couldn't bring myself to fold."
Hinkle then showed and rose from his seat. Hinkle was prepared to make his exit but the flop stopped him in his tracks. He came from behind to take the lead with a set, though the turn gave him pause as it delivered his opponent a flush draw. Fortunately for Hinkle, the harmless appeared on the river.
Hinkle double to 220,000 on the hand.
