Blair Hinkle

We found more friends in the ever-growing field, new and old. Blair Hinkle will always hold a special spot in our history; he won our biggest payout from the biggest prize pool. The 2013 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship featured a massive $10,000,000 guaranteed prize pool that reached $11,920,000 and Hinkle was that Champion. He pocketed $1,745,245 for a record payout that still stands.

Other recent notables include Al Riccobono (Seniors Event runner-up), Spencer Champlin, Katie Stone, Chance Kornuth, Aaron Massey, Loni Hui, and Ryan Van Sanford.
