v.— «Hawkins led for a large part of Sunday’s final portion, and started talk of splitting the pot early and everyone going home (“chopping,” in poker parlance). Then he lost a couple of hands. (Personally, I think he was on tilt—later he agreed, calling some who wouldn’t chop “greedy”—but I didn’t see the cards, so I can’t fairly say if he just got bad cards or got out-played.)» —“Inaugural $3,000 poker tournament at Hard Rock” by Nick Sortal Sun-Sentinel (Florida) June 1, 2008.
