The Brothers Hinkle are Good at Poker, Make WSOP History

Blair Hinkle has been good for our SEO, wins WSOP bracelet

Twelve days ago, 27-years-old Grant Hinkle of Kansas City won the first $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event at the 2008 WSOP, besting a massive field of nearly 4,000 players to win $831,462.

Last night, his better-known, younger brother, Blair Hinkle (above), who has been killing it lately on the tournament circuit (just scroll down here), won a WSOP bracelet of his own, taking down Event No. 23, the $2k buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event and bagging $507,563 for the win.

According to Nolan Dolla, this is the first time in the WSOP's 39-year history that siblings have won bracelets in the same year.

Semi-relatedly, sexy Spanish siblings Penelope and Monica Cruz recently made hot sisters history when they may or may not have made out in their brother's porn-themed music video (screen shot from video below, watch video here.
