Hawkins Off and Running

Level 1: 75-150, 25 ante

Tom Thomas and Maurice Hawkins both chipped up quite nicely to begin the day, but a clash between them has left one with three times the starting stack and the other one with nothing but the felt in front of them.

As recapped to us, Tom Thomas raises to 525 in the hijack and Maurice Hawkins three-bets to 1,175 from the button. Thomas calls, landing a JclubTheart3spade flop.

Thomas leads out, Hawkins raises, and Thomas calls to see the 2spade turn which both players check. The Qdiamond river completes the board and Thomas bets 4,000. Hawkins raises to 11,000, Thomas reraises to 20,000, and Hawkins shoves for about 80,000. Thomas calls with JdiamondJspade for a set of jacks, but is bested by Hawkins' AspadeKdiamond for Broadway. Thomas was down to about 2,000 and has since been eliminated.

Maurce Hawkins - 160,000 (1,066 bb)
Tom Thomas - Elimiated
