Maurice Hawkins Eliminated in 25th Place ($33,967)

Maurice Hawkins - 25th Place

Ryan D'Angelo was in the cutoff and he opened to 35,000 to start the action, with Abraham Korotki three-betting to 85,000 by grabbing a handful of chips from his as yet unstacked pile.

Maurice Hawkins had been crippled in unknown action during a previous hand, and he threw the last of his 75,000 or so into the pot with a slight splash.

D'Angelo decided to see the flop so he flatted Korotki's three-bet, and the two checked through to the turn on a {6-Hearts}{10-Spades}{k-Hearts}{6-Clubs} board. When Korotki tapped the table once again on the {3-Spades} river D'Angelo moved a bet forward which instantly folded Korotki (he still had some chip-stacking to do after all).

Hawkins stood up and asked to see a flush draw, but when D'Angelo tabled the {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts} he shrugged his shoulders and said "oh yeah, that'll do it."

Hawkins earned $33,967 for the deep run here today, more than enough to treat his wife on her birthday this Saturday.
