Event 1A: On the Brinkley of Another Run

Level 5: Blinds 150/300/25 ante

Jim BrinkleyAnother Big Stack for Brinkley

It’s early in the tournament, but Jim Brinkley (Tampa, FL) finds himself with a lot of chips, again.  Brinkley finished 4th in June’s Summer Tampa Bay / WPT Regional Series for a career best $29,000 payday.

“I had the chip lead for three days,” Brinkley laments on what he labels a disappointing finish.

Brinkley’s run-good continues in this event as he’s up to 40k (133 bb) and is the big stack after the first break.

“It’s a hobby,” says the car repair shop owner about his poker game. “I do a lot of work for the dealers here.” And now he’s providing a crash course on how to do damage to his Tampa opponents.
