Speaking of Timex

We just caught Mike McDonald involved in a big pot for all his chips.

It looks like Timex was the preflop raiser with two callers, but we can't be certain as we walked up a bit late. We joined the pot just as the dealer was running out a flop of {7-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {2-Spades}. After a check from small blind Matthew Kay, McDonald continued out with a bet of 4,225. That got a quick call from Darren Elias, while Kay ducked out to let the other two go heads up the rest of the way.

Fourth street: {A-Spades}. McDonald slowly checked, and he would tank and call a bet of 7,600 from Elias.

Fifth street: {2-Diamonds}. McDonald checked again, and Elias thought it over for just a moment before waving his hands forward in that familiar all-in gesture. Timex considered carefully before making the call for his last ~23,000 chips, putting himself all in and at risk.

Elias tabled {A-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} for aces up, and McDonald leaned over to get a better look. He then flipped up his own {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}, and the two men got to take their money back. They'll chop up the blinds and antes, plus a few extra chips from Matthew Kay.
