Blair Hinkle Wins WSOP Circuit Council Bluff Main Event
Blair Hinkle Wins WSOP Circuit Council Bluffs Main Event
It was Blair Hinkle who came out victorious at the
Circuit Council Bluffs Main Event, doing exactly as he did last year and taking the WSOP Circuit Gold Ring and the first place prize. In doing so Hinkle made a little bit of Circuit history in becoming the first player to win the same event two years on the bounce, in fact this is the third time he’s won at Council Bluffs with his first victory coming in 2010...he appears to like playing here! Hinkle went out and set about winning this event right from the start and finished day 1 out in front as chipleader holding more than 2.5 million in chips over the second placed player. The hot run continued, although be that not quite as hot and he entered the final days play in second place, only a little way behind the leader Ken Douglas.
The final table was fast and furious with the first player dropping after a mere 20 minutes of play, and it took only 3.5 hours of action to whittle that number down to just two players with Hinkle taking on Matt Bond in heads up play for first place. Heads up play lasted a lot longer however and the lead switched between players a number of times, with Bond almost taking Hinkle out on a few occasions. Hinkle however mustered and came back strong to win the event, beat the 247 entries and take the Gold Ring and a first place cash of $90,700.
