Hawkins appeared in the headlines of poker news more than once over the years. It was the stories of success and victories, as well as the disputes and lawsuits. Last year, he faced with a public humiliation and lawsuits concerning the backing deal.

In that incident, the partner of the law firm Hal Lewis called him "a cheater, angle-shooter and bully”, as well as a “scumbag”, however ultimately the matter was settled out of court and was found to be a "misunderstanding".

Now Randy Garcia decided to tell the poker world about another contentious situation with Hawkins.
