Hi-Ho Silver, And Away

Mike McDonald - the eliminator

From early position, Mike McDonald opened to 11,000, and Max Silver three-bet shoved for about 55,000. McDonald quickly called, and Silver knew the news was likely not going to be good.

McDonald: {A-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds}
Silver: {A-Hearts} {6-Hearts}

When the dealer burned and turned the first three cards, the {6-Clubs} was right in the door. As it turned out, though, the flop was a very sweaty {8-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} {6-Clubs}. McDonald had picked up a flush draw, and he added another three outs when the {8-Clubs} paired the board on the turn. He needed any ten, queen, ace, or diamond to earn the knockout.

River: {K-Diamonds}

That qualifies, and it sends Silver off to the payout desk for his check.
