Mike McDonald Eliminated in 2nd Place ($1,064,865)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 34: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante
Mike McDonald - Runner Up

Dominik Panka raised to 500,000 from the button and Mike "Timex" McDonald three-bet all in over the top for 5.39 million. Panka asked for a count. A moment after being given the count Panka announced a call.

Panka: {A-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
McDonald: {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The tension mounted in the tournament area as Panka was five cards away from becoming the first Polish European Poker Tour champion. The flop came {2-Spades}{5-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Panka paired his deuce. McDonald jumped into the lead, however, when the {7-Hearts} rolled off on the turn. McDonald was suddenly looking to dodge an ace or a deuce on the river to stay alive and fight on in this heads up match. The dealer rapped the table and burned a card. He produced the river card.

The {A-Clubs}!

McDonald was eliminated in second place and is forced to settle for a $1,064,865 payday. Panka was pushed the final pot and is the newest PCA Main Event champion!
