Serial World Series of Poker (WSOP) casher Chris Klodnicki has just eliminated Keith Hawkins from the UK. Hawkins made a min-raise to 2,000 from first position, Olivier Busquet three-bet to 6,000 on the button, the small blind folded and Klodnicki had a decision in the big blind. In the end the decision was a four-bet to 16,000 and this covered the Hawkins stack. Hawkins called, Busquet folded and we headed for the cooler of all coolers.
So Keith Hawkins will not be added an 11th WSOP cash to his resume. Instead the player with over $1 million in live tournament earnings heads for the door. Klodnicki, meanwhile, moves up to 125,000.
