Pokercast Episode 284 - Blair Hinkle and the SHR $10m Final Table
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week Mike and Adam welcome the winner of the inaugural $10M guaranteed Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Blair Hinkle in to the studio to talk about the big win. Blair talks through some of the interesting hands he played on his path to victory and talks about the deal-making process with second place finisher Justin Bonomo. Blair is nice enough to stick around and join in on the discussion of the poker topics for the week, including Carter Gill's bad beat making national headlines, Senator John McCain caught playing online poker on his iPhone, and the relative difficulty of the no-drinking bet Phil Ivey made with Kasey Thompson. The round of 16 is complete in Music Madness and the guys break down the winners and losers in the search for 2+2’s favorite modern band. As always, the guys deliver the password for the September 8th Poker Stars Invitational for PokerCast listeners.
