The World Series of Poker Circuit has a very storied as well as a long history that dates back to its beginning in the year 2005.  It has been a place where many of the great players have cut their teeth as well as built their résumés,  A place that is known to have the true superstars such as Daniel Negreanu shine bright, as well as being the place where the hardened grinders such as Alex Masek with his record nine gold rings have set superior standards of excellence.

But, even through all of the shining bright and superior standards of excellence, no player has ever won two straight WSOP Circuit events.  That is until now; Maurice Hawkins accomplished this feat by winning the WSOP Circuit Cherokee Main Event with $1,675.00 just a very short few weeks after he took down the event that took place at the Horseshoe Council Bluffs.  Maurice Hawkins last win was worth a grand $279,722.00, this is what added a seventh golden ring to his trophy case after he un-doubted beat a wide field of 1,008 runners.
