Hawkins KO's Sinnaeve, Flies Over 700K


Darren Sinnaeve was all in and at risk preflop holding {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Maurice Hawkins, his opponent, had him dominated with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, but was putting on a little show for the ESPN cameras.

"Queen of spades!" he shouted. "Queen of spades!"

The dealer fanned {4-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

"That's good too," he announced. "Six of spades!"

The turn was the {j-Diamonds}. Hawkins called for one more card, but he was wrong again. Fortunately, it was the {8-Spades}, and he won the hand, eliminating Sinnaeve.
