Hand #12:Jeffrey Tomlinson raised to 235,000 from early position and Maurice Hawkins called in late position leaving himself with just 95,000 behind.

The flop came {9-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Tomlinson moved all in. Hawkins called and the cards were turned up. Tomlinson was in front with {A-Clubs}{q-Hearts} vs Hawkins' {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

The turn was the {6-Spades} and the river brought the {q-Spades}, making top pair for Tomlinson. Hawkins was eliminated in ninth place and is still in search of that elusive WSOP bracelet.
