Maurice Hawkins beasting it on the WSOP circuit

http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/upda...2&dayof=150024

He is the first person to win back to back WSOPc main events. He also won a different ring event in April and came in second in a ring event right before the last main event he won.

Must be nice to be on a massive heater like this.

Does he even lift? He is a little like Hellmuth makes a lot of weird plays, loves to hear himself talk, and highly exploitative of bad players.

He's gotta be doing something right. I've never met him or played with him so I don't know what his rep is in the poker community.

Search out the old thread about him, and you'll see what a "quality" person he is. I hope you'll never get the displeasure of meeting him.

I passed him in the hallway at cherokee. I only knew who he was because someone was congratulating him from the ring he just won. I'll def look him up tho.

Saw him in Vegas about 5 years ago while I was watching my wife play a single table satellite in the Rio. He was arguing with some guy loudly who claimed Maurice cheated him out of $2000. Maurice started calling him names and threatened him and they almost fought. Security was called and within a few minutes they both walked away. I don't think anybody around watching that knew Maurice had a nice thing to say about him.

Yup, another sterling representative of the poker community.

Also heard many stories about him cheating people at the Hard Rock in Hollywood Fl back in the day.

" Bert Gordon: 'You're damned right I'm sure. Everybody's got talent. I got talent. You think you can play big-money straight pool, or poker, for forty straight hours on nothing but talent? You think they call Minnesota Fats the best in the country just 'cause he's got talent? Nah.

Minnesota Fats's got more character in one finger than you got in your whole skinny body.'"

Re: Maurice Hawkins beasting it on the WSOP circuit

I only had played with him once this year at a 1500 event, first time I met him he seemed talkative ,but not disrespectful. Also took a really bad cooler pretty well. Just wanted to give another perspective, through are limited interaction.

No one is all bad, although I will look up some of this stuff.

After he busted he told the guy that interviewed him that he's better than everyone else at the table and that hes trying to hold his tongue or he might say something even worse. Yeah he's on a heater now but i bet by the time he heads to Vegas for WSOP all his profits go down the toilet. I hope he loses . I don't like him one bit

The PCA event was just one example documented in video. The guy he was playing against Srinivasan turned to his friend in a low voice "Have you ever seen anyone get more value from a medium pair with a poor kicker" Hawkins exploded on him. "Oh yeah sir your'e the greatest can i have your autograph" When Srinivasan responded back to Hawkins "Dont take it personal " , Hawkins became even more agitated. Srinivasan was cool throughout the entire ordeal and basically ignored him the rest of the way. Hawkins ended up cashing but busted before Srinivasan.
Not saying the guy shouldnt be put on blast or isnt a scumbag (it's starting to sound like maybe he should) but you are either a pussy and created a gimmick account or you have created an account specifically cause you hate this guy this much.

You have 4 posts - the 3 above and this......

Re: Maurice Hawkins beasting it on the WSOP circuit

I can't count higher than 5 so we will go with **** man.

I'm not gonna lay the boot in while you're lighting money on fire and hating the world. Seems like a lot of what your saying is justified just seems like a lot of hate without any personal stories or issues tbh.

But gl hope it changes

Re: Maurice Hawkins beasting it on the WSOP circuit

I play cash games in WPB with him sometimes, he is not that good.

So a couple things about Mo Hawk (ins) his womans gonna take it all and he likes to get in peoples head (or try too). One of the things Maurice is clever at is getting deep in peoples heads, which is kinda funny and that dont work w me but ill tell you for some reason he does seem to put people on TILT, just by being the way he is.

tl;dr- hes not that good and he likes to try and angle by getting peoples heads (mad/tilted etc)

literally you have to re-level him and get in hes head, bc he can/will go on Monkey tilt when you 'offend him' (LOL) yeah eh thinks he bad A** and hes not, hes soo P***y WHOOPED its hilarious...

Which is probably why they banned him.
