Hawkins Asks For Aces

Chip leader Maurice Hawkins asked the dealer for two red aces before a recent hand so he could stack another player.

Whatever the dealer gave him, it was worth raising to 25,000. The only call Hawkins got was from the big blind who left himself only 35,000 behind.

On the {k-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop, the big blind checked to Hawkins who announced "all-in".

The big blind opted to preserve his last 3 1/2 big blinds and folded, and while Hawkins did not receive the red aces he asked for, he did flash the {k-Clubs} for top pair.
