(pokernews.com) –Just days ago, Maurice Hawkins showed up in the middle of the World Series of Poker Circuit stop at Horseshoe Council Bluffs. He hopped into the $365 Monster Stack event and promptly took down the event for his fifth ring and $19,477 in prize money.
That was a mere appetizer to the $1,675 Main Event course, though. Hawkins made it two wins in two events, shipping his sixth ring and $113,152 for taking that tournament down as well, against a field of 321 players. Hawkins’ ring count leaves him three behind Alex Masek’s record of nine.
