Mike "Timex" McDonald Eliminated in 5th Place (€115,400)

Mike McDonald - 5th Place

Dmitry Yurasov opened for 80,000 under the gun only to have Mike "Timex" McDonald three-bet all in for 740,000 from the cutoff. The button folded, as did both blinds, and Yurasov asked for a count before making the call.

Yurasov: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}
McDonald: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}

McDonald got it in good, and according to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, McDonald had a 54.45% chance of surviving the hand while Yurasov would come from behind 45.17% of the time. Unfortunately for McDonald, this was one of those times as the flop came down {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Spades}.

Yurasov paired his ace to become a massive 91.21% favorite, and McDonald was left in need of a six, which would come a mere 8.78% of the time. The {Q-Clubs} turn was not it, and neither was the {8-Diamonds} river. "Good game guys," McDonald said before taking his leave in fifth place for €115,400.
