Maurice Hawkins

Maurice Hawkins shipped all in for 4,775,000 with {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and Isaac Haxton quickly called with {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Haxton held a slight lead heading to the flop, looking to close this one out.

The flop came {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs} giving Haxton two pair and Hawkins a straight draw. The {k-Clubs} on the turn left Hawkins drawing to just four outs but the {q-Hearts} on the river was not one of them. Hawkins shook the hand of Haxton but will exit the tournament in second place.
