Mo Gets Some Talking Chips

[user272102] • Level 5: 100-200, 0 ante

We get to the table with a flop of {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and a bet of 975 in front of Maurice Hawkins who was in the big blind. His lone opponent is Scott Montgomery, best known for his fifth place finish in the 2008 WSOP Main Event. Mongtomery moves all in and Hawkins makes the call and is at risk with {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}. Montgomery is on a draw with {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades} but Hawkins has two of his outs. The turn is the {J-Diamonds} and the river is the {8-Hearts} and Hawkins scored the much needed double up to 8,100 in chips.

And with that double up, the talking started. Nothing unusual for Hawkins, who had a ninth place finish in the Millionaire Maker for $128,150.
