Gary McGinty

Coming back from dinner break Gary McGinty was the chip leader with 1,150,000 and we went to check up on him and see whether he was well rested from his dinner break.

Daniel Ulvrell opened from the hijack and Sacha Lebreton flat-called in the cutoff. Virgilio Dicicco also called on the button before McGinty three-bet from the big blind to 105,000. Lebreton was the only caller.

The flop came {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs} and McGinty continued for 79,000. Lebreton raised to 158,000. McGinty moved all in and Lebreton eventually folded.

McGinty showed {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} while raking in the pot, meaning he moves up to just under 1,500,000.
