Hawkins First To Go Back-to-Back on WSOP Circuit After Winning Cherokee Main


The World Series of Poker Circuit has a long and storied history dating back to its inception in 2005. It’s been a place where some great players cut their teeth and built résumés, a place where true superstars like Daniel Negreanu have shined, and a place where hardened grinders like Alex Masek with his record nine gold rings have set lofty standards of excellence.

But through all of that, nobody had ever won two straight WSOP Circuit main events, until Maurice Hawkins accomplished the feat by winning the WSOP Circuit Cherokee $1,675 Main Event just weeks after taking down the one at Horseshoe Council Bluffs. Hawkins’ latest win, worth $279,722, added a seventh ring to his trophy case after he beat a field of 1,008 runners.
