We were near another table when we heard Keith Hawkins loudly say, “Must be nice” and wondered what he was referring to. So we went over to his table and saw Chris Bjorin raking in the chips from a previous pot.
We stuck around for the next hand to see Hawkins raise to 1,100 from under the gun, Bjorin call as the next to act and then the cutoff and small blind joining as well. All four players checked the flop and Hawkins led for 2,600 on the turn when it was checked to him. Bjorin and the small blind folded but the cutoff called as the two saw the on the river. Hawkins checked this time and the cutoff moved all in for around 7,000. Hawkins smiled and quickly folded as his opponent took down the pot.
