Mike McDonald - 4th Place
Mike McDonald - 4th Place

Mike McDonald raised to 200,000 from under the gun with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and Vitaly Lunkin called from the small blind with {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. Steve O'Dwyer peeked at his cards in the big blind, saw {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}, and tossed out a call as well.

The trio took in an absolutely mammoth flop of {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. This flop gave McDonald trips against Lunkin's full house. There were two checks over to McDonald who moved out a continuation bet of 250,000. Lunkin slid out a check-raise to 750,000 and O'Dwyer mucked his hand. McDonald thought for a moment and then flat called to see a turn.

Fourth street was the {8-Spades} and Lunkin came out swinging with a bet of 1,000,000. Timex replied by shipping all in over the top for 1.95 million and Lunkin snapped him off. McDonald was left looking to make a bigger full house on the river but it was actually Lunkin who improved with the final card as the {6-Spades} rivered giving him quads. McDonald was eliminated in fourth place and will collect €269,400.
