Timex Finds a Double


Jonathan Duhamel raised to 17,000 to open the action, and Sam Stein three-bet to 43,000 in position. Out of the cold, Mike "Timex" McDonald shoved all in for 180,000 total, and Duhamel quickly folded. Stein had {A-Hearts} {K-Diamonds}, though, and he matched the bet to put McDonald at risk. Timex turned up {7-Hearts} {7-Spades}, and the race was on.

The {10-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {2-Hearts} flop was a good sweat, but McDonald jumped into a huge lead with the {7-Clubs} turn. He needed to fade the four queens in the deck to double, and the river {K-Clubs} was too little, too late for Stein.

The two men have essentially traded places now with McDonald stacking up just shy of 400,000 chips.
