Kevin MacPhee has just lost the majority of his stack in a hand with Brian O'Donoghue.
There was already 68,000 chips in the middle by the time the flop came into view. MacPhee was in early position and O'Donoghue on the button. MacPhee was in the tank and the next thing we knew, MacPhee had check-shoved, was called and the cards were on their backs and the players were all in.
When the stacks were counted, MacPhee had O'Donoghue covered by only 22,000 chips, or three big blinds.
MacPhee needed to spike a six to win the hand, otherwise he faced the prospect of handing over almost all of his stack. The turn was the and the river the , gifting O'Donoghue the hand and the huge pot.
Misplayed 6s terribly. Thought the button 3bettor was deeper so I peeled chk/shoved T52dd instead of 4bet shoving 30 bbs eff & T9s got me.Follow @KevinMacPhee
