Ivan Ruban

Blair Hinkle limped on the button and Ivan Ruban checked his option in the big blind.

They checked to the turn of a Qh4c2d8d board where Hinkle bet 225,000. Ruban check-raised to 675,000 and Hinkle called.

The river was the 4s, Ruban shoved for effectively 1,700,000, and Hinkle thought for a bit before he called with Js8s for eights and fours.

Ruban tabled 8c4h for a full house, fours full of eights, to win the pot and the $1,100 Big 4 No-Limit Hold’em event outright for $107,125.

Blair Hinkle, the original SHRPO champion, finished runner-up for $73,425.
